Can I transfer VICTOR WorkOut 1.5 protocols created on one PC to another?
Document ID: DQ095 Relevant to following products: WorkOut 1.5 Document description: How To: Transfer VICTOR WorkOut 1.5 protocols from one PC to another.
If you create a WorkOut protocol which takes VICTOR measurements on one PC and intend to use the protocol on another PC, there are special considerations:
The VICTOR measurement settings are actually stored in the Wallac VICTOR database; a WorkOut protocol references this database. Therefore, when moving the WorkOut protocol you must either: recreate the VICTOR settings on the target PC or ensure the VICTOR database on the target PC matches to the references in the WorkOut protocol files.
To recreate the VICTOR settings on the target PC (recommended for a small number of protocol files):
Open the transferred WorkOut 1.5 protocol file on the target PC. Press the Device button, select the Raw data item and press Remove. Next press Add and use the Wallac Manager to recreate the measurements. You must ensure you setup the same type of measurements as the protocol expects. If this is the case the rest of the protocol will work correctly.
Update the VICTOR database on the target PC (if transferring many protocol files):
Since Dazdaq did not develop the Wallac manager software you should follow these instructions with caution (or at least contact the VICTOR specialists to check this is OK in your situation)
After copying the WorkOut protocols from one PC to another, you must also copy the VICTOR database files in:
Of course overwriting these files on the target PC will destroy any previous settings in the existing VICTOR database. It is recommended you backup the contents of this directory first.
To overwrite the files in this directory you must make sure that you are not running the VICTOR software. If it is running you can stop the VICTOR as follows: Close all VICTOR windows, then press Ctrl+Alt+Del, select Processes, find and select the MlrSrv.exe and select End Process.
