					          Proficio Migration Wizard - Overview of Steps
The upgrade from Visual Re:discovery to Re:discovery Proficio represents a significant change in the program--
both with the user interface and the background architecture. Because we are shifting from a FoxPro backend
database to an SQL backend database, the "upgrade" is really a migration. You will be installing Proficio, which is
an entirely separate product, and migrating data into it. The two will run side-by-side during the migration. Usually
one directory type (art, archives, etc.) will be upgraded at a time so users often shift to Proficio at different times.

Some steps will probably be done by an IT network administrator, unless the Re:discovery user has the
permissions and security necessary to install programs.

Library/Archives users: Complete all steps for running the Migration Wizard for your Collections directories. When
finished, please contact Re:discovery Software Inc to make an appointment for assistance with running the wizard
for any Library/Archives directories you may have.

The steps, location of the instructions, and person likely to do the step are as follows:

IMPORTANT: For each directory style when you have run the final upgrade, users will be begin to work

systems. Make sure people know where to work. You may choose to update user security in Visual so
people can view but not edit records in the old directory.
