ICP Expert II software assistance

I have a Varian 720 ICP-OES and I recently purchased a software upgrade. I am currently running ICP Expert II version 1.1 on a Windows XP computer. I have installed my new software on a Windows 10 computer and am now stuck at the part for migrating my database to flat file. In looking through the new software I am not seeing anywhere that it uses the database system for methods and worksheets. I am not sure if that is because it no longer works like that or if it is because I have to copy my current database to be installed in the program. I also see in doing that I'm going to need to update my current system to Windows 7 in order to upgrade. That seems like a lot of work. If the new software is not going to use a database I find it would be easier to just rebuild my methods in the new system. Does anyone have any insight or guidance?

  • The Windows 10 version 2.x software operates as flat file only, and not database. Therefore, you are correct that you would need to migrate your databases to flat file, but because you have version 1.1 on Windows XP, you would need to upgrade that version to Windows 7 first.  I agree with you that it is easier to rebuild your worksheets in the new software.
