Upgrading 5.5 to 6.1

Follow these steps to upgrade to Data Workbench v6.1.

Important: The client components are upgraded to run on 64-bit Windows operating systems.

Client Upgrade

Important: Before upgrading to Client v6.1, the administrator must first upgrade to Server v6.1.
  1. Launch Insight.exe but DO NOT connect to any profiles.
  2. Edit the Insight.cfg file to not update software automatically.
    Update Software = bool: false
  3. Connect to Software and Docs profile (softdocs).
  4. Download Software\Insight Client\v.6.10.
  5. (optional) Modify insight.cfg to support double-byte characters.

    Data workbench currently supports both English and Simplified Chinese. Select fonts to support both of these languages:

    Fonts = vector: 2 items 
    0 = string: SimSun
    1 = string: Arial
  6. Exit out of the client.
  7. Copy the files in the downloaded v6.1 client package to the Install folder.
    Note: The Insight.zbin file in the install folder is a backup file used for localization, and must be present in the install directory. This file or other.zbinfiles will be used depending on the command-line settings passed when starting up.

    For example, to launch Simplified Chinese, create a shortcut that passes in the command-line setting

    Insight.exe -zh-cn

    If you want to launch in English (default), then no command-line change is necessary.

  8. Launch Insight.exe for English or the shortcut that you created for another language.
  9. Connect to your profile and allow the client to synchronize with the server.
  10. (optional) To employ the IME, make these changes to the Insight.cfg file:
    Localized IME = bool: true

    The Input Method Editor (IME) allows you to input international characters.

  11. (optional) Edit the Insight.cfg file to automatically update software:
    Update Software = bool: true
  12. Restart again after the profile synchronization to employ the most recent .zbin file.

The client installation is now complete.
