Update archived databases

If you have archived databases from the earlier version of FH, you should update them to the current version of FH.

Warning: If you have archived databases from FH 5.x.xx, you must contact FH technical support for assistance in updating them. They can not be updated with the steps below.

  1. In Windows Explorer, navigate into your FH installation directory.

    Tip: By default, the installation directory is C:\FIREHOUSE Software.

  2. Double-click FHUpdate.EXE.

    The Update - FIREHOUSE Software dialog box appears.

  3. Select Live Data, and then enter the path to the location of the FH archive database.
  4. Confirm that Lookup contains the same path as Live Data.
  5. Click Update.
  6. (If you have multiple archived databases) Repeat steps 2–5 for each archived database.
