How to move my Compass to a new workstation?
Please follow below steps in order to move Compass to a new workstation.
Preparation on the old workstation. It includes
- Backup SQL Database (It is also possible to skip this step if you refer a fresh start on the new workstation. In this way, you will have a brand new database WITHOUT any previous data. You would need to redo the hardware setup, and all previous imported plans are not here.) Detailed procedure can be found: How do I backup the database of the COMPASS correctly
- Backup Beam Models
Beam Models are not stored in SQL Database, we need to backup/restore it separately.
In Beam Commissioning software - Service - Backup machines..., select the desired beam model, define the directory and file name - click Backup, and you will have the *.rsbak file, this is the backup of beam model. Repeat the above procedures for all desired beam models one by one.
Install SQL Database and Compass on the new workstation
Restore SQL Database (can be skipped if you choose not to backup database in the first step) Detailed procedure can be found: How to restore a database?
Restore Beam Models
Run Beam Commissioning software again, go to Service - restore machines - select the source file - click Restore, the beam model will be restored.
You will see the About window jumping out when running Compass or Beam Commissioning. Click the c2v... button to generate the c2v file and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org, we will create the activation file (v2c file) for you.
Apply the v2c file by going to About - v2c...-select v2c file - open, a window will jump out informing you activation is successful.
