One: I have v5.12.14 installed and I need to move data to the new VM with v5.16.2, so I figured I would need to upgrade in place, first; however I get a message indicating that I must remove the old version before installing the new. Will I lose data?
I can backup the database, but I understand the database schema may change between minor versions, so I don't know if that will help.
Two, I used the config_utility in v5.12.14 without any issue to backup and restore the database; but, while fiddling with v5.16.2 on the new VM, I get several errors with the config_utility:
--- when it starts, I get a dialog saying "index was outside the bounds of the array"
--- if I try to backup the database, I get an application crash message
--- if I try to restore the database, I get the "index was outside the bounds of the array" dialog, as above
dont think you will loose data if you uninstall, since its saved in the database
what happens if you do a clean install on the new VM? is it working then? so after you restore the database, its showing those errors?
