Importing from old version
« on: March 25, 2020, 12:18 AM »
I hope that I haven't missed the discussion of this theme before but I just installed the new Alpha and tried to import the database from the previous version of CHS, and it didn't work.

I have a lot of favorites, etc. and at the same time I understand that the database format has changed greatly.

Do you think it's possible to have an import for users of the earlier version?

Thanks!

What kind of error did you get?  That might help mouser when he sees this.

The new version will happy upgrade data files from the old version if it finds them in its database directory.
