Installation of Workgroup Database Server¶
In this guide Workgroup Database Server is abbreviated to WDS.
For new installations continue with Step 1.
Before installing an upgrade, uninstall any previous version of the Workgroup Data Server. You can save and reuse the snumbat.ini file from the installation directory. Uninstalling the WDS will leave all data untouched.
You will encounter an error message before the setup can be run if another version is installed. The error reads as follows:
Another version of this product is already installed. Installation of this version cannot continue. To configure or remove the existing version of this product, use Add/Remove Programs on the Control Panel.
The Workgroup Database Server (WDS) cannot serve databases that have a higher version number than the WDS installation. For example WDS 16.0 can serve databases to InfoNet 16 or InfoWorks 6 and lower. An InfoNet 16.5 or InfoWorks 6.5 database cannot be created or served by WDS 16.0.
