Version 2 Compatibility

General

Version 2 Network and Version 2 Single will co-exist with older versions of MIDUSS on the same computer. These older versions are MIDUSS 98 and MIDUSS 4.72 for DOS.

Version 2 Single will not co-exist on the same computer with Version 2 Network installed either as server or client.


Version 2.0

Data files

Early Version 2 text output files are fully compatible with later updates to Version 2. That is, an early output file created in Version 2.00 Rev. 100 will work in Version 2.65 Rev 400 (for example).

A text output file created in a later release (example) Version 2.65 Rev. 400 will work in earlier releases, Version 2.00 Rev 100 for example, with the warning that any new field data in the newer output file will not have a suitable location or use in the older release and so that newer-type data will be ignored. Version 2 introduces the Save Session feature which is a snapshot of all interactions with MIDUSS. Sessions are saved in a binary file (with the .bin extension). As with the text output files discussed above, older Session files are compatible with updated releases of MIDUSS Version 2. However, a Session created with a recent Version 2 will be compatible with older Version 2 releases to the extent that new features (on the new Session file) cannot be properly assigned in the older release and will be ignored.

Program Upgrades Single to Network

A Single license cannot be updated to a Network version. The Single license must be completely uninstalled first.

Program Upgrades Demonstration Mode to Network

A Demonstration Mode license cannot be updated to a Network version. The Demonstration license must be completely uninstalled first.

Program Upgrades Demo to Single

A Single license is the same as Demonstration Mode license in terms of files and installation procedures. All that is needed to upgrade from a Demonstration Mode to a Single version is the addition of a Serial Number on the opening screen.

MIDUSS 98

MIDUSS 98 data files (the output files) can be used in Version 2 Network and Version 2 Single.

Once the older files have been processed by Version 2 the new output files cannot be used again in MIDUSS 98.  MIDUSS Version 2 data files will not work with MIDUSS 98.

MIDUSS Version 2 data files will not work with MIDUSS 4.72 for DOS.
 

MIDUSS 4.72 for DOS

MIDUSS 4.72 for DOS data files (1986-1998) will not work with MIDUSS 98 or Version 2 licenses.
