Need help from group - Restore Vantage 4.00.603 - 4.00.901

Thanks Lonnie
Well I'm glad to hear I can use the database files. I couldn't
remember when Progress with to that multi-volume thingie.

I don't have the patch files though and they don't list any version
4 patches at the Epicor site anymore. Do any of you have them. Let
me know and I'll give you e-mail instructions.
thanks

Here's the short version first:
Vantage 4.00.901 was running on a laptop as a stand alone server.
The batch files to do the database backups were on it but they never
ran them during the year and a half they used it. The hard drive
died.

Their computer guy used a Linix boot floppy to copy the contents of
the hard drive to another system. They want me to put Vantage back
together so they can run their year-end reports.

Here's what I need:
Does anyone know how to get a functional database back from the
actual version 4 database files when no backup was made?

I have the original 4.00.603 CD and license codes. I need the patch
(es?) to bring Vantage back up to 4.00.901


By the way this installation was done with Epicor's permission when
our companies split after we were purchased. I don't think they
would help fix this for free though.

Any ideas? thanks
James,

If I understand correctly, It seems you're in good shape. It should
be just a matter of copying and verifying the database reflects the
new location..

(1) install Vantage and upgrade to same patch levels as the DB
(2) copy the old DB files, Vantage.db and the extents d1, d2, d3,
etc., and the ST file, to new location.
(3) edit the ST file for any changes in location
(4) run "x:\epicor\progress\bin\prostrct repair vantage"

If problems, Epicor help desk should be able to talk you through.
