Migrating from Eyeshot 4 to Eyeshot 10

First, we recommend to take a full backup of your project(s) including your existing Eyeshot DLLs.

From version 4 to version 10 many changes were made but with Eyeshot 8 we introduced the Project Converter tool that helps you to migrate from a major release to the next one.
For this reason, we suggest to make the migration step-by-step through each version and use the Project Converter when available. 

Listed below are the suggested steps.
(note: after each step, check your project to be sure that it compiles successfully)

v4 --> v5)  Check the following article: https://www.devdept.com/Support/Migrating_From_4x

v5 --> v6)  Check the following article: https://www.devdept.com/Support/Migrating_From_5x

v6 --> v7)  Check the following article: https://www.devdept.com/Support/Migrating_From_6x

v7 --> v8) Install Eyeshot v8 and use the tool as shown in this video.
Here you can read what's changed in Eyeshot 8.

v8 --> v9) Install Eyeshot v9 and use its ProjectConvert tool as described here.
Here you can read what's changed in Eyeshot 9 and what are the breaking changes.

v9 --> v10) Install Eyeshot v10 and use its ProjectConvert tool as described here.
Here you can read what's changed in Eyeshot 10 and what are the breaking changes.

 

Additional notes:

If you get the following error loading the project

Please edit the project file, fill the <HintPath> with the absolute path of the Eyeshot DLLs and try again.

For example, migrating from Eyeshot 9 to Eyeshot 10, change

<Reference Include="devDept.Eyeshot.Control.v9">
<HintPath>C:\Users..\devDept.Eyeshot.Control.v9.dll</HintPath>
</Reference>

in

<Reference Include="devDept.Eyeshot.Control.v9">
<HintPath>C:\Program Files\devDept Software\Eyeshot Ultimate 9.0\Bin\devDept.Eyeshot.Control.v9.dll</HintPath>
</Reference>
