If you are installing the GRAMS Suite 9.0 Release on a system that is currently running
an older version of GRAMS, please read the following.
Previous to GRAMS 9.0, the default Destination Folder was -
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Galactic.
The default folder beginning with GRAMS 9.0 is -
C:\Program Files\Thermo\GRAMS Suite.
When installing GRAMS 9.0 do NOT change the Destination folder
to the previous path.
Instead, either keep the suggested path, or create a new folder for this release.
(See Step #3d in the Installing the GRAMS Suite section of the
GRAMS 9.0 Welcome Guide
for more information.)
Likewise, the new GRAMS Suite Data Destination folder (GRAMSSuiteData) should
not be changed to point to an older GRAMS data folder. Either accept the default, or
create a new folder and browse to the new folder during Step #3e of the installation.
After the installation is complete, the GRAMS Configuration Manager is run as the last
step. If it detects a previous GRAMS license database on the system, it will copy the
contents of this database to the new directory structure. This will preserve the users
that have been added to the GRAMS system.
The GRAMS 9.0 applications will not reference the old Galactic folder, so it is safe
to remove this after you have verified the GRAMS 9.0 installation is working. You may want
to keep the old folder for a few days in case you have created any data files that need to
be copied to the new folder structure.
You may copy files from the Workbooks and
Data subfolders of the old Galactic folder to the equivalent subfolders of the
new GRAMSSuiteData folder.
