How to convert Projects from from 6.0 or 7.x to 7.5.2 ?


The following describes the use of the Project Converter in 7.5.2 and concerns users upgrading from 6.0 or 7.x to 7.5.2.


Users who converted projects from 6.0 to 7.x and still want to use these projects in 7.5.2 must run the new command tool (ProjectConverterRun2.exe) provided with 7.5.2. This new converter fixes the following issues:


  • Bucketing aborting when assets in different folders in the tree have the same name.
  • Unavailable preview for assets converted from 6.0 to 7.x.


Use the following procedure:

  1. Shut down the server and make a backup (asset & database). See the Alienbrain Administration Guide for the database (Metadata) backup process.
  2. Run the following commands:
ProjectConverterRun2.exe rollback -s "\\SERVER\\SHARE\Project_file.pro"
ProjectConverterRun2.exe convert -s "\\SERVER\\SHARE\Project_file.pro"
