Reverting to DocFactory 2006 after upgrading to Caliber 2008

Resolution:

QUESTION

I have upgraded to Caliber 2008. Now I am currently experiencing a number of DocFactory issues with templates that worked flawlessly in the previous version. Is there a way to revert back to using the older version of DocFactory?

ANSWER

If you have upgraded to Caliber 2008 and are experiencing issues with the new DocFactory functionality, you can revert back to the previous version as a temporary workaround.

You can go to program files\borland\caliberRM and launch the old Document Factory by double clicking on the docfactory.exe (the new version is docfactory2.exe)

To force the use of the previous version of document factory everytime it is launched:

Go to: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Borland\CaliberRM\Launching DocFactory

Under this key, create a new string entry (if it doesn"t exist) named "Executable Name" and set the string value to "DocFactory.exe". By default it is "DocFactory2.exe" which is the new version. This will determine which DocFactory is invoked by the CaliberRM client.
