To be able to use Qinsy 9, an upgrade to your QINSy 8 license is needed.
All QINSy 8 users will need to get in contact with Sales to obtain a new license.
Please contact Sales at firstname.lastname@example.org or your Local Reseller.
Database (Template) version
In Qinsy 9.0 and upward, the version of the Qinsy database has been upgraded and is therefore not compatible with previous versions (8.18). New records have been added which are not compatible with previous versions.
Before the upgrade, a backup of the template database is created in the Backup folder. Data that is recorded in Qinsy 9 is not compatible with previous versions.
The backup database will have .db_backup file extension. To use it again with QINSy 8, copy the template database back into the database root folder and remove the _backup from the file extension.
Switching back to 9.1 version
It is possible to switch back to an older 9.1 version. However, in 9.1 selecting a 9.2 project will sometimes result in 9.1 being able to open the project.
Some easy workarounds are available and are described in Qinsy 9.1.1 - Known Issues.
The Knowledge Base contains documentation on how to set up the Geodetics in this new version of Qinsy: How-to Geodetic Upgrade 8.18.3 to 9.2 .
End of support for Qinsy on Windows 7
Microsoft has ended Support for Windows 7 in January 2020 and QPS also stopped supporting Windows 7, as announced in the 9.2 release notes earlier this year.
Qinsy 9.3 has not been tested on Windows 7. Any problems with this version related to the Windows 7 Operating System will not be solved.
It is highly recommended to switch to Windows 10.
