•
This release can be installed on a fresh PC; and it can be installed as a base build or as
an upgrade on earlier releases on top of 2.0.14.3 and its upgrades till 2.0.48.2.
Manually deleting Compass folder from the computer to remove Compass 2.0 will corrupt
the registry and will cause unexpected issues with future installation.
Do not run legacy and new installation at the same time. The Compass 2.0 installation
normally does not require the computer to be rebooted. However, in scenarios where
some files are in use, the setup will display a message to reboot the computer.
After Compass 2.0 installation, you cannot use the Compass 1.5.8.X version existing on
your computer. Even after you remove Compass 2.0 installation, you may not be able to
work with Compass 1.5.8.X. To continue with 1.5.8.x version, install it again.
Panel application short-cut keys are not supported for check-boxes etc.
Compass 2.0 supports MS SQL Server\SQL Express database in the network. It does not
support MS Access 2.0 due to limitations imposed by Microsoft. You will need to migrate
Compass MS Access 2.0 legacy database to MS SQL Server\SQL Express. This can be
done by choosing ‘Migrate Access accounts’ option during installation.
