How to upgrade Evolve and EA BP software
I would like to upgrade my Casewise (EA BP) and Evolve to the latest, what will I need?
Download the latest Casewise and Evolve from our website.
Backup any Custom files from Evolve folders
Backup the entire Casewise SQL DB.
Uninstall Evolve and any other Add on
Run Upgrade DB
This is a Very important step.
The user in the Casewise database connection must have SQL Sysadmin rights to the Casewise database.
If set as Trusted Connection, then the user logged in to the machine is the user that needs Sysadmin
From a machine with Casewise 2016.2.2 installed run the validate repository to upgrade.
Open CMD as administrator
Point to the Casewise bin directory
Type the following:
-username:YourUserName password:YourPassword -upgradedb
-Connection: this is your Casewise connection name, what is display in your Logon window
-Username: this is the Casewise user name, ADMIN is best to use
-Password: ADMIN user password, or the system user that is used to connect
After the database is upgrade please run the same command with Applyfixes
C:\Program Files (x86)\Casewise\CM10\bin>ValidateRepository.exe -Username:ADMIN -connection:Stand-alone -Applyfixes
Once completed you may login to Casewise and see if you can view and open your diagrams.
