  • import categories definitions from old version of acdpro to acdsee ultimate 2018

    I would like to get advice on how to import categories from old version of acdpro database to acdsee ultimate 2018 database.

    Depends.

    If you want to the categories with all assigned items then start your old version and optimize the database first. Then start your new version and convert the db. AC will create a copy of your old db and convert it for the new version.

    If you just want to copy all category definitions without any items assigned, then it's a little tricky:

    Start your old version and go to database export. In the dialogue select export to text file with the option to include all category definitions only. Let AC create a file on the desktop.

    Next open the file with your text editor and edit the version number found in the first row. For the latest version of AC (v12) make it <ACDDB Version="1.17.0"> and save the file.

    At last start the new version, go to database import, select import from text file and also select your text file. AC should import the text file very fast and offer to restart. That's it.

    Beware this is a hack, so make backups first!
