Things to remember when upgrading your FotoWare system from version 7.0 to version 8.0

What to remember when upgrading the FotoWare system from version 7.0 to version 8.0.

When planning to upgrade a FotoWare system from version 7.0 to version 8.0, make a note of the following:

Always upgrade servers before clients

New servers work with old clients. So when migrating to a new version, always upgrade servers first. This is true for all servers; Index Manager, Color Factory, FotoWeb and Connect. The process of migrating all clients to a new version typically takes longer, so you can keep running old clients connected to a new server until the migration is complete.

Note, however, that the reverse is not possible: Version 8.0 clients cannot connect to version 7.0 servers.

New features and feature changes in FotoWeb 8.0

The upgrade of FotoWeb from version 7.0 to 8.0 has additional implications. A separate document has been made that highlights all the changes in FotoWeb 8.0 and the implications for upgraders.
