Upgrading Typical ePublisher Implementations
After you save your existing Stationery design projects, Stationery, any projects you currently use to generate output, and any copies of override files to a secure location, perform the following steps:
On the Stationery designer computer, uninstall all existing versions of ePublisher components, such as ePublisher Express, ePublisher Pro, and ePublisher AutoMap. The Stationery design computer is the computer the Stationery designer uses to create and update Stationery. ePublisher Express and ePublisher Pro are installed on the Stationery design computer. Based on your configuration, ePublisher AutoMap may also be installed on the Stationery design computer.
Install the new version of ePublisher Express and ePublisher Pro on the Stationery designer computer. Also install the new version of ePublisher AutoMap if you run ePublisher AutoMap on the Stationery designer computer.
Open your existing Stationery design projects using the new version of ePublisher Pro.
Generate output and verify that your output generates as expected. Make any adjustments as needed.
If you have implemented typical overrides in a Stationery design project, 'such as overrides to 'Page.asp' files, custom' .css' files, or image files, you can continue to use your overrides to these files, and the new version of ePublisher will recognize and use these existing modifications when generating output.
If you have implemented advanced overrides, such as overrides to .xsl or .fti files, or overrides to files in the Formats folder, update these files in your new ePublisher installation to include your advanced overrides. For more information, see “Upgrading Implementations with Advanced Customizations” on page 35.
Create new Stationery for each Stationery design project.
Deploy the updated Stationery to an appropriate location.
On each writer computer, uninstall ePublisher Express and then reinstall the new version of ePublisher Express.
The next time writers generate output, they open their existing projects using the new version of ePublisher Express. Writers can choose to synchronize their projects immediately to obtain the latest Stationery and then generate output, or writers can continue using their existing Stationery until they are ready to move to the latest version of the Stationery.
