I am currently running BE 1.4.5.0 with VistaDB Express, can you tell me the easiest route to BE 1.6 keeping my Vista Database intact with all the users, posts, etc.

Do I need to run more then one script to get there?

Thanks

Excellent question.

I accidentally forgot one of the VistaDB upgrade scripts in the release dropped last night. So if you only have one upgrade script, download it again and you should find a 2nd upgrade script.

Once you have them both, open up your VistaDB DataBuilder and run the script for upgrading To 1.5 from 1.4.5 first. Then run the script for upgrading to 1.6 from 1.5.

Other than that, follow the rest of the instructions in the Readme file regarding updating your web.config, making a backup, etc.

Good luck.

Thank you for the quick reply and fix, I have 1.6 up and running with my existing VistaDB.
