Hello,
I am unfamiliar with Advanced Steel and I need assistance in upgrading Advanced Steel 2010 to Advanced Steel 2014. I do not know our serial number or activation code or how to find it. I know we are doing network licensing so I'm guessing I will need to do some sort of install on the server as well. Thanks

Hi Steve,

Essentially, you are able to open up Advance Steel 2010 with Advance Steel 2014. You can save your files to Advance Steel 2014 but all the settings you have made in Advance Steel 2014 cannot be converted to directly to Advance Steel 2014.

You would need to do this sequentially meaning converting from Advance Steel 2010 to Advance Steel 2011 then to Advance Steel 2012 then to Advance Steel 2013 then to Advance Steel 2014. In the event you do not have these versions we will transfer them for you on our side. We will need all your Astor’s except your AstorAddins.mdb which you would copy to the same location in your Advance steel 2014 folder

You would have to convert all your databases: AstorBase.mdb/ AstorGratings.mdb/ AstorRules.mdb/ AstorSettings.mdb are located in:

 ·         C:

·         ProgramData

·         Graitec

·         Advance Steel

·         2014

·         Steel

·         Data (folder)

Your AstorProfiles.mdb is located in:

·         C:

·         ProgramData

·         Graitec

·         Data (folder)

You then have to copy your AstorAddins.mdb from the folder in your 2010 folder in the same location in your Advance steel 2014 folder.

Your AstorAddins.mdb is located in:

·         C:

·         ProgramData

·         Graitec

·         Advance Steel

·         2014

·         User 2

·         Data (folder)

If you have customized your prototypes you will have to copy them to the same locations on Advance Steel 2014

 

Your prototypes are located in:

·         C:

·         ProgramData

·         Graitec

·         Advance Steel

·         2014

·         Shared

·         Support

·         Prototypes

Open each one and save it to override the existing prototypes in Advance Steel 2014.

I hope this helps

Best Regards,

 

Janet Black
