To upgrade to Designer 3, follow the same procedure that is outlined in Section 1.2, Installing. If you install Designer in its present location, you see the Designer Found message, asking if you want to upgrade. If you select , Designer deletes the older version of Designer and installs Designer 3 in its place.
When upgrading to Designer 3, take note of three items:
Do not use Designer 2.1x workspaces for Designer 3. Designer stores projects and configuration information in a workspace and these are not compatible between Designer versions.
In Designer 3, default workspaces are stored under the C:\Document and Settings\Username\designer_workspace directory for Windows XP, the C:\users\Username\designer_workspace directory for Windows Vista, and the \home\username\designer_workspace for Linux.
Import all Designer 2.1x projects into Designer 3. This runs the Converter wizard, making the projects compatible to run in Designer 3. Be sure the Section 16.1, Converting Earlier Projects.option is selected. For more information on the Project Converter, see
If you are running workflow provisioning and provisioning with roles, follow the installation or upgrade procedures as outlined in Identity Manager Roles Based Provisioning Module 3.6.1.
