We will no longer support new installations that use the full Microsoft SQL Server (Express or other editions). The currentHORTICOPIA® Professional Version V utilizes the Microsoft SQL Local database implementation which greatly simplifies both installation and configuration of the HORTICOPIA® Professional Version V software.
If you have added any of the following data to HORTICOPIA® Professional:
and wish to continue to use that data, you will need to save the existing Horticopia Data folder.
If you do not have any of the data described above that needs to be transferred, keep it simple by not attempting to transfer the Horticopia Data folder.
Normally, you can:
Open the Horticopia Control Panel (Start, All Programs, Horticopia Pro V, Horticopia Control Panel).
Click on the Setup tab
Click on Delete the Horticopia Data folder
Let the software delete the Horticopia Data folder.
If this doesn't work, search the system disk (C:) for Horticopia Data. Be sure to include hidden folders and files in the search. The Horticopia Data folder is typically in the Program Data folder or in the Public Documents folder. Once you locate it, delete it. (Be sure it's not your copy of the Horticopia Data folder that you've saved/backed up.)
Occasionally you won't be able to delete the Horticopia Data folder because the SQL Server has not released the database. The simplest way to resolve this, is to open the Windows Task Manager, select the Services tab, locate the SQL Server, and then right-click on it and select Stop Service. Alternatively, you can reboot the computer.
You can update yout existing installation by downloading and installing the update that includes the LOCALDB from:
An alternate option is to use the latest software disk image that replaces your software CD. To do so, see http://www.horticopia.com/hesk/knowledgebase.php?article=98
1. Do one of the following::
2. Click on the Setup tab, then click on Import HORTICOPIA Data from a different location.
3. Locate the Horticopia Data folder that you saved/backed up earlier and let the data import complete. All of your data will now be successfully transferred and usable.
It's a good idea to periodically back up your Horticopia Data. This is easily accomplished using the Setup tab in the Horticopia Control Panel.
