UniDAC

Migration Wizard

Note: Migration Wizard is only available for Delphi.

UniDAC Migration Wizard allows you to convert your BDE, IBX, ADO, dbGo, ODAC, SDAC, MyDAC, IBDAC, PgDAC, LiteDAC, AnyDAC, FireDAC, and FIBPlus projects to UniDAC.

This wizard replaces the database components in a specified project (.dfm and .pas-files) with UniDAC components.

To convert a project, perform the following steps:

  1. Select UniDAC Migration Wizard from the UniDAC menu.
  2. Select Replace components and choose the type of the components to replace corresponding ones with UniDAC and press the Next button.
  3. Select the location of the files to search - current open project or disc folder.
  4. If you have selected Disc folder on the previous step, specify the required folder and specify whether to process subfolders. Press the Next button.
  5. Select whether to make backup (it is highly recommended to make a backup), backup location, and log parameters, and press the Next button. Default backup location is RBackup folder in your project folder.
  6. Check your settings and press the Finish button to start the conversion operation.
  7. The project should be saved before conversion. You will be asked before saving it. Click Yes to continue project conversion. After the project conversion it will be reopened.

The Wizard just replaces all standard database components. Probably you will need to make some changes manually to compile your application successfully.

If some problems occur while making changes, you can restore your project from backup file. To do this perform the following steps:

  1. Select UniDAC Migration Wizard from the UniDAC menu.
  2. Select Restore original files from backup and press the Next button.
  3. Select the backup file. By default it is RExpert.reu file in RBackup folder of your converted project. Press the Next button.
  4. Check your settings and press the Finish button to start the conversion operation.
  5. Press Yes in the dialog that appeared.

Your project will be restored to its previous state.
