Installation Instructions for a Patch

NOTE: To apply this patch, you must sign on as a user with Administrative Privileges on the Server.

It is recommended that you have a recent backup of your Collect! system prior to any upgrade procedure.

Are you coming from 12.4 or lower?

12.5 contains 3 significant changes:

  1. The Database Connection is now managed at a domain level, so in order to connect to the server, you need to make sure that SQL server has the account for 'BUILTINUsers' added and the server role set to sysadmin. Optionally, you can setup your own accounts and database security.
  2. The Log Files, including CBR have been moved out of the bin folder and into the CollectLog Files folder.
  3. Notes are no longer stored as binary text. They are now stored as individual records.

For all of the above reasons, you need to take a FULL backup of the Collect! folder and databases before applying the patch.

You also need to ensure that SQL server is configured properly so your users can sign in.

On Your Server:

  1. Ensure you have an operator in your database at User Level 99 and you know their password (user 99 exists by default)
  2. Ensure all users are logged out of Collect!
  3. Shut down your Collect! Companion Service (The Patch will also attempt do this automatically if you forgot).
  4. Make sure that there are no open files (see below).
  5. Run the collect_12.x.x.x.exe on your server or workstation that you are patching.
  6. When prompted, select the applicable patch (Server/Client) that you are running and follow the prompts to direct it to your Collect! installation (for example, C:CV12).
  7. On your SERVER, start your CV12, sign in with an operator with user level 99 and Select START to sign into your MASTERDB database. Collect! will rebuild your lists.
  8. From the menus at the top, select Help - About and confirm that you are now on the correct version.
  9. Sign into all other databases that you use.

Applying an upgrade patch may fail if your Server's O/S is holding onto sessions and files. Please ensure that all sessions and files are closed.
To ensure that all sessions and files are close, Reboot your actual server before continuing with patch instructions. Or, if you can:

  1. Right click My Computer and Manage.
  2. Select Shared Folder and open it.
  3. Select Open Files and review for any files open in Collect. CV12bin*** etc.
  4. Windows 2008 server is: Administrative Tools Share and Storage Management Actions Manage Open Files.
