Migrating from version 12

We recommend taking a full backup of your project(s) including your existing Eyeshot 12 DLLs. To migrate your Eyeshot 12 based application to Eyeshot 2020, follow the steps below:

  1. Try to compile your existing project
  2. Run the Project Converter tool
  3. In case of failure:
    a) search for the "TODO devDept" text in your entire Visual Studio solution
    b) check the ProjectConverter log file for errors
    c) check the Breaking Changes list

 

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 12 to Eyeshot 2020, change

<Reference Include="devDept.Eyeshot.Control.v12">
<HintPath>C:\Users..\devDept.Eyeshot.Control.v12.dll</HintPath>
</Reference>

in

<Reference Include="devDept.Eyeshot.Control.v12">
<HintPath>C:\Program Files\devDept Software\Eyeshot Ultimate 12\Bin\devDept.Eyeshot.Control.v12.dll</HintPath>
</Reference>

  • Hi, I am trying to Migrate Eyeshot 11 to Eyeshot2020.

    But convert tool says that "Error: Eyeshot 12 is not detected. This project refers to Eyeshot 11."

    Please tell me how to fix it.

    Regards Misha.
