A note on upgrading from earlier versions of Recipe Manager Plus


Upgrading Wonderware Recipe Manager Plus installs 2014 R2 (v.2.0) on a computer that has a previous version currently installed. An upgrade removes or uninstalls the previous version of Wonderware Recipe Manager Plus and installs Wonderware Recipe Manager Plus 2014 R2 (v.2.0).


Note: Upgrade does not affect the data logged in the SQL Server database.


You must use the IDE Import utility to re-import Equipment to their existing RecipeManagerPlus App Objects. This will update the URL the objects use to point to the Recipe Manager Plus Server (if it has changed). The IDE Import utility itself may need to have its Server Site node name updated in order to perform the import. For more information, refer to the section below.


For more information regarding the upgrade from a previous version of Recipe Manager Plus, see the Upgrade section of the Recipe Manager Plus Installation Guide.


Note: The Schneider Electric Licensing Server is not installed as a part of an upgrade and if a local license server is required, you must install and configure the Schneider Electric Licensing Server after the upgrade before you can use the Recipe Manager Plus v2.0 application. If you are using a remote license server, then configure the Schneider Electric License Server to the remote node. Licenses must be available at the remote server for Recipe Manager PLus to acquire and work.
