🌶️ Migrating from Eyeshot version 7 to Eyeshot 2024

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

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

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.

v10 --> v11) Install Eyeshot v11 and use its ProjectConvert tool as described here.
Here you can read what's changed in Eyeshot 11 and what are the breaking changes.

v11 --> v12) Install Eyeshot v12 and use its ProjectConvert tool as described here.

v12 --> v2020) Install Eyeshot v2020 and use its ProjectConvert tool as described here.

v2020 --> v2021) Install Eyeshot v2021 and use its ProjectConvert tool as described here.

v2021 --> v2022) You can skip this conversion: it is possible to migrate directly from Eyeshot 2021 to Eyeshot 2023 (see next step).

v2021 --> v2023) Install Eyeshot v2023 and use its ProjectConvert tool as described here.
Here you can read what's changed in Eyeshot 2023 and what are the breaking changes.

v2023 --> v2024) Install Eyeshot v2024 and use its ProjectConvert tool as described here.
Here you can read what's changed in Eyeshot 2024 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 Ultimate 9 to Eyeshot Ultimate 10, change

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

to

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


If the ProjectConverter hangs during the conversion, you can try the latest one attached here that shows the progress rows counting for each file during the conversion process.
In this way, you can know where it hangs. (Issue can occur till Eyeshot v11)

Just download the correct zip file according to the Eyeshot version, unzip it and replace the one provided with the Eyeshot setup.

For example, migrating from Eyeshot Ultimate 9 to Eyeshot Ultimate 10, you need to download the file named ProjectConverter_V10.zip, unzip it and copy its content to C:\Program Files\devDept Software\Eyeshot Ultimate 10\Tools.
