Alexandria v6.1.4 ZIP


SAISD Alexandria Update

Alexandria 6.1.4

Alexandria v6 runs on the following operating systems. Below are more specific recommendations: Mac OS 10.5, Mac OS 10.6, Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows Server 2008.

Important!

File location changes. Due to security permissions, the data folder and auxillary files may be stored in a shared Application Support folder. See user's manual for details.

In addition, due to system limitations, when updating or upgrading on OS X, make sure to empty the old application out before launching the new data station or client applications.

Due to changes in the database architecture, once a data file has been moved up to 6, it cannot be downgraded. Therefore, it is essential that all customers archive or back up prior to upgrading to 6. You should review your database and preference settings after updating to ensure that your information is correct and that no additional changes are needed. Additionally, the OS requirements for all clients have changed. Please make note.

New Recommendations for Data Stations & Librarian Workstations.

Although Alexandria should function on lower end machines, these hardware specifications are our recommendations to make your Alexandria experience more pleasant.
