Vision filesystem - Converting Version-4 Vision Files

0 Likes

Problem:

How can Vision files be upgraded from version 4 to version 5?

Resolution:

Rebuild the files using the vutil utility (vutil32 on Windows) version 6.0.0 or later, e.g.:

vutil32 -rebuild -5 [filename]

where [filename] is replaced with the name of the file to be rebuild.  They -5 lets vutil know the rebuilt file should be a Vision 5 file.

If there are any questions on which versions of Vision vutil supports simply type "vutil" or "vutil32" and the output will look like the following:

c:\acucorp\600\acugt\bin>vutil32

vutil -info    [-kpxq] [files]

      -check   [-afkqx] [files]

      -zero    [-q] [files]

      -rebuild [-acdlt2345q] [-bfgkp #] [ ce] [--slow] [files]

      -gen     [-2345q] [filelist directory]

      -size    [-nq] [files]

      -extract [-xq] [-kn #] [-v keyvalue] file

      -load    [-(b|d|t)lnrvqx] source-file dest-file

      -unload  [-(b|t)vq] source-file dest-file

      -deleted [-(b|t)vq] source-file dest-file

      -convert [-acd2345q] [-f #] [ c] [files]

      -tree    [-q] file

      -augment [-q] new-max [files]

      -fixvers [-q] [files]

      -note    [-q] comment [files]

      -version

on the "-rebuild", "-gen" and "-convert" lines the options 2, 3, 4 and 5 are seen.  These equate to the versions of Vision that the version of vutil being used can work with.
