How to migrate Silverstack Beta Projects to Silverstack Public Version Projects

If you are a user of a Silverstack beta version you might want to migrate your projects to the Silverstack public version. There is an easy process to perform this migration.

Locating the Library Folders

Silverstack, Silverstack Lab and their associated beta versions have different library folders that contain the projects. You will find them at the following paths on your Mac:

            ~/Library/Application Support/Pomfort/Silverstack7

~/Library/Application Support/Pomfort/Silverstack7Beta

 

~/Library/Application Support/Pomfort/SilverstackLab7

            ~/Library/Application Support/Pomfort/SilverstackLab7Beta

You can also navigate to the folders from the Main Menu of Silverstack using the menu item “Silverstack>Show Library in Finder”.

Migrating the Library

  1. Close Silverstack
  2. Backup existing Silverstack projects: Rename the current Silverstack library folder (e.g. Silverstack7 or SilverstackLab7) in the directory  ~/Library/Application Support/Pomfort/ to Silverstack7_old
  3. Rename the beta version library folder (e.g. Silverstack7) in the directory  ~/Library/Application Support/Pomfort/ to Silverstack7
  4. Open the public Silverstack version
  5. If prompted you might have to update the project library if a database migration from the beta version is require
    1. Please note that for large libraries the process can take several minutes. During that time Silverstack will become unresponsive. Leave the system running and the migration process will come to a solid finish.
  6. You can now use Silverstack with your projects from Silverstack Beta.

KEEPING PROJECTS FROM BEFORE THE MIGRATION

If you want to keep projects you created in a Silverstack public version from before the migration process you can do that by copying the project folders:

  1. Close Silverstack
  2. Go to the previously renamed “Silverstack7_old” folder.
  3. Select the projects you want to take over to your migrated Silverstack library (projects folder usually are named similar to “Project-1F342864AF90”)
  4. Copy them to the current Silverstack7 folder.
  5. Start Silverstack

You will then have all your migrated and the previously created projects in Silverstack together at one place.
