• [VOICENWS] General: Are you going upgrade to new version of eCS?

    From VOICE News Service@1:3634/1000 to All on Thu Nov 22 18:52:39 2012

    ++ From the VOICE OS/2-eCS News Service http://www.os2voice.org ++

    From: egDESPAM@DESPAMecomstation.ru

    Main question: how do you collect data from old system?

    If you are going replace old eCS with new one then share your experience

    with other users:

    * which directories may contain apps?

    c:\programs, c:\tools, c:\util

    * (for developers) What cfg files of your application are important

    for migration? (should be copied to new system)

    * What system settings to save? (local network params, ..)

    * What settings of User Interface to save?

    === Suggestion for developers: ===

    Create script migrate.cmd in the directory of your application, parameter: target_dir -

    target directory to save user data and cfg

    Example: e:\migrate-20120725\688 - we are collecting all data to migrate-20120725,

    to the sub-directory N 688 (ID of your application)

    Create cfg\ for settings, userdata\ for user data.

    The user installs new system, extracts the contents of e:\migrate,

    All applications during installation can check if

    this directory exists and contains user data and settings.

    P.S. eComStation offers migration mechanism but

    major part of users prefer install to new hard drive and re-install
