The modification of database structure has been introduced "silently" in 3.2 version of Lechler MAP to improve global performances of program and distributed with a new installation CD in June 2015.
There is no instrument that enables you to replace automatically the database; therefore, you need to proceed 'manually' as described below (it requires a good familiarity with 'copy, paste and modify' of files in the computer hard disk).
- Download from Lechler Portal the last available database version in the new format (SQL), if possible, in the PC where you installed LECHLER MAP or on a USB disk.
- Copy the file downloaded in the folder C:\ProgramData\Lechler of the computer you want to update and extract its content (double click). PLEASE NOTE: according to the default settings, the folder C:\ProgramData\Lechler is hidden: to show it, please follow these instructions.
- Select the file LechlerMap.ini and open it for editing using Notepad or Wordpad. On line DbFormat and DefaultDbFormat replace value “Mdb” with “SqlLite”. Close the file and save changes.
- Run LECHLER MAP and on the homepage click on IMPORT DATA.
- Select the option MAP PERSONAL FORMULAS. Highlight the file Lechler_MAP_pers.mdb in the open window and click on OPEN in the lower right.
- Click on IMPORT and wait for the operation to complete.
- Restart LECHLER MAP for import of personal formulas and list of jobs done before its database update (job registry) to take effect.
