I have problem with auto upgrade files from SS4.
I set CIVIL_UPGRADE_PROMPT_OFF =1, but old files (SS4) are always READ-ONLY. I have ORD 2020 R2.
In my company we have also ORD 2020 R1 where all works fine.
Here is the suggested solution from Bentley Support:
SS4/SS10 files will not automatically upgrade the civil data to the ORD schema. We provide a version checker tool that can upgrade SS4/SS10 files to ORD.
The executable is found where you have installed the software and is called VersionChecker.exe
C:\Program Files\Bentley\OpenRoads Designer CONNECT Edition\OpenRoadsDesigner\VersionChecker.exe
You can watch the following video on how to use the version checker but you simply run the executable and then use the File menu to open the file or folder to upgrade. Then select the View and select Upgrade List and then select Action and Upgrade All. The program will try to upgrade the files to the current version.
Once you upgrade the version checker will tell you the schema version and product version on the Schema Details tab.
GRRRR....so has anyone found a solution to this problem in 10.09? where version checker no longer exists.
The version checker was rebranded to the Civil File Manager with an EXE in the same folder as the Version Checker was located. I don't think any of the functionality has been removed, but haven't tried an SS4/SS10 file with it yet.
ORD - 10.11.00.115 / 10.10.21.04 / 10.10.01.03 / 10.08.01.33Power GEOPAK / Power InRoads - 08.11.09.918Civil 3D - 2021 / 2022
Thanks Steven. I also had a speedy reply from support with the same answer. This information was probably in the release notes. Mea Culpa.
My immediate need was a SS4 survey file, which seems to have successfully migrated using the civil file manager.
Good to hear you got what you needed there. It's a lot to keep up with some times.
