The following is the suggested process for upgrading an existing ProjectWise 3.8 database to ProjectWise V8 XM Edition. This process is intended to serve as general guidance only and will not apply to all installations. Bentley recommends that ProjectWise Administrators become familiar with the new capabilities of ProjectWise V8 XM Edition before migrating their production environment to ensure a successful upgrade.
Due to changes in the internal database structure, it is necessary to do this upgrade in three parts. The first part will upgrade your database to ProjectWise V8 2004 Edition version 8.5; the second will upgrade your database to ProjectWise V8 XM Edition; the third will upgrade any custom tables or Bentley Planner tables in your database.
This document assumes that you have already installed the ProjectWise V8 XM Edition Integration Server on your computer, and that you have performed any necessary migration of your database to the minimum requirements for ProjectWise V8 XM Edition.
Please contact Professional Services in order to obtain the ProjectWise V8 2004 Edition DMS upgrade kit.
Once this step is performed, step 6 may be re-executed.
