Using the EDIUS Project Migration tool

To work on existing EDIUS projects after upgrading to GV STRATUS version 4.5 and above, you need to migrate your projects using the EDIUS Project Migration tool.

The project migration tool does not reconstruct contents locks. It only creates associations between EDIUS Project Group and EDIUS Project file in the GV STRATUS database.

The EDIUS Project Migration tool will be installed automatically when EDIUS XS is deployed with SiteConfig or the Standalone Installation Kit.

You must launch the MS-DOS Command Prompt on the GV STRATUS Core server and use the command line below to utilize the EDIUS Project Migration tool.

EdiusProjectMigration.exe [Action] [Options] <host>
Note: Only [Options] are optional in the command line.
