Installing GoldMine
GoldMine provides various types of installations, a new installation or upgrade, on a server or workstation, in
network or remote location. Review the planning items and considerations, determine the type of installation you
are running, and use the associated checklist to ensure a successful installation.
Planning Your Installation
When planning a GoldMine installation consider:
Who will be the designated GoldMine administrator? The GoldMine administrator must have access to
network and office resources and be able to address the business-related implementation issues regarding
configuration and customization.
Do you have the proper license and registration information for the version of GoldMine you are
installing? For detailed information on licensing, see Licensing and Registration.
TIP: GoldMine Solutions Partners are GoldMine Certified in installation and setup. To locate a
partner in your area, go to www.goldmine.com and use Find a Partner.
Are you going to import data? Verify that you can import the source data into GoldMine.
Does the system administrator have full administrative rights? To install GoldMine on a network, the
GoldMine administrator must have full administrative rights on the network.
Are your service packs compatible and current? Check the version and service pack number for your Microsoft
Windows operating system. Verify no issues exist with your current service pack.
■
Have you reviewed the network structure?
○ Are there multiple domains? Do users have the rights on the GoldMine domain to access GoldMine?
○ Is the server outside the regular network? There may be connectivity issues the network administrator
needs to address.
What type of database are you using? GoldMine supports both Microsoft SQL Server or SQL Server Express.
Will you be integrating GoldMine with Microsoft Office? Microsoft Office 2007/2010/2013/2016 are
supported for integrating with GoldMine, and must be installed/configured before installing the GoldMine Plus!
component.
NOTE: GoldMine does not support the Microsoft Office 64 bit versions.
Will GoldMine be used with different languages? If the Windows setting for "Language for non-Unicode
programs" on the machine running GoldMine does not match the setting on the database server, GoldMine may
not be able to update records that contain region-specific characters.
Page 11 of 75
To check this setting, go to Start > Settings > Control Panel > Regional and Language Options, and click on the
Advanced tab. The language shown in the drop-down list should be consistent with the language in which your data
will be stored.
NOTE: You may not be able to use two different non-English languages. Double-byte characters, such as
Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and Hindi will not display properly in data fields and list views (i.e., grids) and are
not supported.
Installation of GoldMine on Windows
■
You can install and run GoldMine on Windows 7, Windows 8 or 8.1, or Windows 10, but you cannot share your
installation with other Networked Workstations over a network (i.e. they are not supported as application
server environments).
■
The installer will offer customized path settings for GoldMine's program files. The installer, by default, creates the
destination folders with correct permissions set for proper use. If the destination folders you will install to
already exist, or if you create them yourself, you must ensure that the selected folders have the correct access
permissions.
NOTE: Installing to the default path is highly recommended.
Installation of Universal Search
The Universal Search feature provides a single view to quickly find out what information is in your system and how to
navigate to it. Universal Search can be installed by selecting Yes at the end of the Licensing Wizard (see Licensing
Following Installation), or by using one of the following procedures:
■
To Install Universal Search from Within GoldMine
■
To Install Universal Search from a Command Prompt
IMPORTANT: MS SQL Full Text Search must be correctly installed and configured prior installing
Universal Search.
For information about using Universal Search, refer to the “Universal Search” topic in the GoldMine Premium
Edition User Guide pdf or in the Online Help.
IMPORTANT: If you choose to install Universal Search, the Microsoft SQL Server database will create and
populate indexes for full-text search. The process of populating indexes may take a very long time,
depending on the size of your database and the hardware configuration of your computer. During this
process, end-user performance may be negatively affected due to additional load on the database server
while the indexes are created.
If you terminate the GoldMine process (gmw.exe) from the Windows Task Manager while the indexes are
being populated, the Universal Search feature will not work properly. You can re-enable Universal Search
at Tools > Configure > System Settings > Advanced, using the uninstall/install button. This will delete
and then re-create the full-text indexes.

Installation on a Server
A server installation requires a GoldMine install to a local path on the server. The database and the data folder are
shared with networked clients. Workstation-based users can connect to the server data from their local computers
after Installation on a Networked Workstation.
IMPORTANT: If you are installing a new version of GoldMine after uninstalling a previous version, you
might have entries left in the Windows Registry which will cause GoldMine to assume you are upgrading.
These entries must be removed to allow you to install GoldMine. Consult with your System Administrator
before you attempt to remove any entries from your Windows Registry.
NOTE: Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2012, Windows 7, Windows 8/8.1 and Windows 10, have a split
path installation. The gm.ini file installs into the \ProgramData\GoldMine, which needs to be shared
because this folder contains gm.ini to which realini setting from workstation gm.ini should point.
(realini=path to shared gm.ini)

19. When the Installation Completed dialog appears, click Finish.
The Welcome to GoldMine dialog opens to begin the licensing process. See Licensing and Registration.
Unattended Installation
Another installation option is the Unattended Installation (also known as Silent Install). This option allows installation
without user interaction. Installing GoldMine using the unattended installation mode recreates the same steps as a
workstation install, using user responses stored in a configuration file.
For example, you perform a full GoldMine installation on a clean computer (a computer with no previously installed
versions of GoldMine) using the connect to existing database option. Then you run the GoldMine installer in
unattended mode on the other computers. GoldMine will be installed into the same directory with connect to
existing database option.
TIP: A GoldMine administrator can create unattended installation scripts for various installation
scenarios.
The Unattended Installer uses a special configuration file named gm_si.ini. For detailed instructions on how to
create this file, see To Create Configuration File for Unattended Installation.
NOTE: The generated gm_si.ini is meant to be deployed to a machine with a similar condition. If you
create a gm_si.ini file from a machine that has been upgraded, the same gm_si.ini can not be deployed
as a new installation in another machine.
Page 26 of 75
To Create Configuration File for Unattended Installation
1. Run GoldMine installer as usual.
For more information on installing, see Installation on a Server.
2. Proceed to the Ready to Install the Program dialog.
3. Select the Create a configuration file for unattended installation checkbox.
4. In a default install the file will be created in the:
C:\ProgramData\GoldMine\Setup\GoldMine folder, and be named gm_si.ini
5. Click Install.
The configuration file and bat file (gmsetup_si.bat) will be created.
TIP: You can also create an unattended installation script after installation. For more information,
see Creating an Unattended Installation Script.
NOTE: If the installer in unattended mode cannot repeat exactly the user mode steps, then the installer will
switch to an interactive mode and the user can manually continue with the installation.
To Manually Run the Unattended Installation
Manually run the unattended install using gmsetup_si.bat file.
NOTE: GM installer files gmsetup.exe, gm_si.ini, and gmsetup_si.bat should be placed into the same
directory.
In some cases the unattended installer cannot repeat the exact steps as a normal install. For example, the
unattended installer cannot perform a full installation (without previously installed GoldMine) on the computer with
GoldMine already installed with the same version because the installer is running in maintenance mode.
Automatic Upgrade
Use the following procedure to upgrade networked workstations.
To Upgrade Unattended Installation
1. Create the configuration file.
For instructions, see To Create Configuration File for Unattended Installation.
2. Select GoldMine > Tools > Configure > System Settings > Auto-Upgrade.
3. Set the paths and filenames of the GoldMine installer and configuration file created in step 1.
NOTE: This must be a UNC path to a sharable directory.
After completing this procedure, any local installs of GoldMine will automatically prompt users to upgrade GoldMine
whenever the local GoldMine version is less then the server GoldMine version.
Installation on a Networked Workstation
A Networked Workstation setup installs GoldMine on the workstation and enables a workstation user to connect to
the Server copy of the GoldMine database from their individual computer.
Page 27 of 75
Share the GoldMine data folder on the server. If you plan to access the data folder by a mapped drive, then map the
same drive on each workstation to the shared GoldMine folder on the server. It is recommended that a UNC path be
used instead of a mapped drive. This is required for use of GoldMine Connect..
Sharing the GoldMine Folder on the Server
To run the shared folder installation, after installing the Server setup, share the GoldMine data directory (default:
C:\ProgramData\GoldMine\)so the Networked Workstation functions properly. All GoldMine users must have
rights to read, write, modify, and delete files for GoldMine to function on the Networked Workstation.
NOTE: Sharing can expose other applications. Do Not install GoldMine as a root folder of the drive, rather,
install to C:\Program Files\GoldMine (32-bit OS) or C:\Program Files (x86)\GoldMine (64-bit OS) on
the Server. We highly recommend installing GoldMine to the default paths.
Your procedure might vary depending on the operating system where the Server database is located. Refer to the
documentation that came with your operating system for detailed instructions.
To Share the GoldMine Folder on the Server
To share the GoldMine folder you must perform two steps: share the folder and configure the permissions. Follow
the procedures listed below to share the GoldMine folder.

Mapping a Drive on the Networked Workstations
We recommend that GoldMine be accessed by UNC path. This is necessary if you plan to use GoldMine Connect. If
GoldMine will be accessed by a mapped drive, all networked workstations accessing the shared GoldMine folder
must be mapped to the same network drive letter (for example, G:\) to facilitate GoldMine administration and
operations related to linked documents and synchronization.
Mapping on the Server
The SysDir entry in \ProgramData\GoldMine\gm.ini must be changed so that it points to the mapped folder
containing the LicenseGM94.bin file.
For example, if GoldMine was installed to C: and \ProgramData\GoldMine was mapped to G:, the SysDir entry
in C:\ ProgramData\GoldMine\gm.ini would be changed to: SysDir=g:\
The RealIni entry Program Files\GoldMine\gm.ini (for 32-bit OS) or Program Files
(x86)\GoldMine\gm.ini (for 64-bit OS) must be changed so that it points to the gm.ini file in the mapped
ProgramData\GoldMine folder.
For example, if GoldMine was installed to C: and \ProgramData\GoldMine was mapped to G:, the RealIni entry
C:\Program Files\GoldMine\gm.ini (32-bit OS) or Program Files (x86)\GoldMine\gm.ini (64-bit OS)
would be changed to: RealIni=g:\gm.ini
On each workstation where the Connect to Existing Database Install option will be used, the following shared folder
should be mapped:
\ProgramData\Goldmine folder.
To Map a Drive in Windows
1. Open the Windows Start menu and select All Programs > Accessories
2. Right click on Command Prompt shortcut and choose Run as Administrator.

Installation on an Undocked Computer
An Undocked setup is the same as a full setup, with the only difference being the license number. For detailed
installation instruction, see Installation on a Server.
If the undocked computer you are upgrading or installing works remotely, see Upgrading GoldMine.
Read the following points before running an undocked computer installation:
■
If installing an Undocked version of GoldMine while it is in your office, disconnect the laptop from the network so
you install a completely independent copy on the computer.
■
An Undocked installation is performed for users that frequently work remotely and are not connected to the
office network via a faster connection. The user works on a local database on their computer. Data is
exchanged between the user’s local database and the office database during synchronization. For more
information, see the online help for instructions on setting up GoldSync.
■
Instead of using the gmsetup.exe to install GoldMine on an undocked workstation, you can run the installation
by using an installation file for One-Button Synchronization. For further information, refer to the
“Synchronization” chapter of the GoldMine Administrator Guide (or the "Synchronization" topic in the online
help).
Creating an Unattended Installation Script
During installation, you have the option to Create a configuration file for unattended installation (see Installation on
a Server). If you are planning on installing or upgrading GoldMine on other computers, you can use this file or create
a new one
By creating a customized installation script, you can choose precisely the script parameter information you want to
proliferate to the other computers on your network. This script can then be used for your unattended installations.
Use Case Scenarios
■
New Installation
Create installation file that enables GoldMine to be installed and licensed on an undocked machine in an
unattended mode. Repeat this process for 20 undocked machines
■
New Installation Connecting to Existing Database
Create installation file that enables GoldMine to be installed on a networked machine in an unattended mode
that connects to an existing database. The process is similar to a New Installation above.
■
Upgrade Installation
Upgrade an undocked machine with a new license. This process should not require that the administrator have
physical access to the machine. Repeat this process for any additional undocked machines.

Page 35 of 75
To Run an Unattended Installation Script
1. Create an Unattended Installation Script (see To Create an Unattended Installation Script).
2. Place a copy of the .INI and .BAT file in the same location as the GoldMine installation file.
For example, the following files would need to be in the same directory to run the script:
○ <scriptname>.ini
○ <scriptname>.bat
○ gmsetup.exe
3. Run the <scriptname>.bat file to start the installation.
Modifying the Registration Key
If you install GoldMine Plus!, it is only active for the current user. If you want other users of the same system to have

Licensing and Registration
GoldMine has a fully scalable licensing structure to meet the needs of individuals and organizations. As your
business matures and GoldMine expands, your organization can change the licensing configurations.
General Licensing Information
The single, distributed Master License serves as the authentication mechanism for secure synchronization across
the entire organization, and the License Manager keeps track of your licensing configurations.
Most organizations generally buy one license—a Master License with x number of seats. These seats can then be
parsed to users in various combinations of sub-licenses. For example, an organization can create Site sub-licenses
for their remote office(s) and Undocked sub-licenses for individual remote users. One seat should always be set
aside for administrators.
License Types
■
Master License: This is the primary license. It determines what database types are supported by the master site
as well as its synchronization capabilities. It is a precursor to executing any sub-licenses which stem from it.
NOTE: GoldMine Web, GoldSync and Outlook Integration licenses are included in E licenses.
TIP: For information about licensing serial number schema, see License Serial Number.
■
Sub-licenses: To issue, install GoldMine with a Master License on your organization’s primary network. This
ensures all sub-licenses maintain security and are authenticated properly during synchronization.
NOTE: The Undocked license (a special sub-license) is for remote users and can only be licensed for a single
user. It can be sub-licensed from the main GoldMine system or from a Site sub-license.
■
Increases: Licenses increases are facilitated by obtaining a new E license.
Master License

Sub-licenses
U
Undocked License
Single sub-license for a remote GoldMine user
S
Site License
Multiple-user sub-license for a remote office
Y
GoldSync License
GoldSync sub-license for a remote office
License Serial Number
The schema for the serial number has changed. Because of the new licensing schema, the GoldMine installer will not
upgrade your license. This example illustrates what a GoldMine license serial number looks like:
■
License type: Alpha-prefix denotes the type of Master license.
■
Number of users: First 4 numbers indicate the license count or seats available in the license. The license count
determines the number of users who can log on to GoldMine at one time but does not limit the total number of
named users.
■
Version: A 2-digit version number.
■
HDA number: A unique 6-digit customer account number, also referred to as the Help Desk Authorization (HDA)
Account.
■
Serial number: 15-character (alphanumeric) serial number uniquely identifying the license for an organization. It
is used for registration and support and identifies all sub-licenses as part of the same organization. Collected in
3 groups of 5 characters during licensing.
■
Key code: 15-character (alphanumeric) key code is a computer-generated check used by GoldMine to verify the
license’s validity. Collected in 3 groups of 5 characters during licensing.
NOTE: The license is required for the product to run. Keep the license number and key code in a safe place in
the event it becomes necessary to reinstall the software.
Page 38 of 75
License Manager
Initial licensing information is collected during installation. Subsequent changes and related management functions
are handled through the License Manager.
To open the License Manager, launch GoldMine, open the Tools menu and select Configure > License Manager.
The central text box lists all installed licenses and any sub-licenses created from this loc ation. Status is displayed
along the right side. Buttons along the bottom allow you to add a New License, add a New Site, add an Undocked
User, Remove License, or View License.
The database support of the Master License is inherited by the site sub-licenses distributed throughout the
organization. GoldSync Synchronization capabilities can be distributed separately to sub-licenses.
NOTE: Licensing information is stored in the license file, LicenseGM94.bin, created at the time you register.
This file must exist only in the GoldMine main data directory of each GoldMine installation.
TIP: Additional License Manager information is provided in the Online Help.
LicenseGM.bin File Locations
The LicenseGM94.bin file is located in \ProgramData\GoldMine for all installations made to the default
(recommended) location. Networked workstations will access the LicenseGM94.bin file at the GoldMine server.
Page 39 of 75
Licensing with a Master License
A GoldMine Premium Edition Master License begins with the alpha-prefix E.
For Example: E-002594-123456-...
The E-license is usually a multi-user license for a Server installation of GoldMine, but can be a single-user license for a
Undocked Workstation computer.
An E-license includes a GoldSync license for each purchased GoldMine seat.
Remote site sub-licenses (S- and Y-licenses) and Undocked sub-licenses (U-licenses) are created from the E-license.
Type the E-license number and key code you received when you purchased the software.
NOTE: If you type an E-license serial number into the text boxes, the GoldSync text box area remains
unavailable because GoldSync is included.

GoldMine Universal Search.
Click Yes to proceed with Universal Search or No to ignore the option.
If you click No, Universal Search can still be installed at a later time. For more information, see “About Universal
Search” in the GoldMine User Guide or Online Help.
Creating Sub-licenses
After GoldMine is installed and licensed, you can parse seats to your end users with sub-licenses using the License
Manager. You must have a Master License to create sub-licenses.
Page 44 of 75
IMPORTANT: Plan before creating sub-licenses, keeping in mind each sub-license transfers seat
availability which affects how many users can log in on the network system. For example, on the Licenses
tab of the License Manager, if the Total users/dist: shows a total number of seats and the total number of
sub-licenses as “50\20,” only 30 seats are available to users. At a minimum, one seat should always be set
aside for administrators only.
Creating Sub-licenses for Remote Offices
From a Master License, you can create sub-licenses for remote offices. Remote office sub-licenses can be a Site
License (S-license) and/or a GoldSync License (Y-license).
Each “S” sub-license transfers seat availability from non-remote users. A minimum of one seat must remain available
to non-remote users. For example, you must have at least 5 seats to make GoldMine available to 4 remote offices.
Headquarters retains the fifth seat.
NOTE: When creating any sub-license, note the entire license number created by GoldMine. The sub-license
includes the key code and additional information needed when licensing the remote computer.
To Create a Sub-license for a Remote Office
1. From the GoldMine menu, select Tools > Configure > License Manager. The License Manager appears.
2. Click the Licenses tab.
3. Click New Site to open the Create a Site Sub-License dialog.
Page 45 of 75
4. In the Distributed License Type area, select the site license you want to create; GoldMine Site License (SLicense)for the number of seats the site needs or GoldSync Site License (Y-License) for the number of users who
are synchronizing, including at least one for the site.
TIP: Write the sub-license number down or copy it to Windows Notepad. The sub-license number is
needed for each remote computer installation. Send the remote site license number to the
remote user who can type the license number during the GoldMine installation.
5. In the Site Sub-License area, type the site name and number of users.
6. Click Create Site Sub-License to open the The Sub-License for Remote Site dialog.
7. Review the information about the sub-license and click I Agree. The sub-license number for the site appears in
the Sub-license for Remote Site [Name of Site] dialog.
8. If you created a Site license, repeat the above process to create the necessary GoldSync license and select
GoldSync Site License.
NOTE: GoldMine adds the sub-license to the list of licences on the Licenses tab of the License Manager.
Creating Sub-licenses for Undocked Users
GoldMine has a sub-license for an individual user called an Undocked License (U-License). This license type is created
for users who work primarily with GoldMine at a remote location on a laptop, notebook, or home office computer
but who may also need to log on to the network occasionally. Consider:
■
Creating an undocked user decreases the available users of the network site (Master License or Site License) by
one; however, when an undocked user logs on to the site from which they were sub-licensed, they do not take
up an additional seat.
■
Every user supported by the GoldMine license can have an Undocked license to work on a remote computer. For
example, on a 5-user GoldMine system, 5 Undocked licenses can be created. This is in contrast to creating an
“S” sub-license which requires one seat to remain available from the Master License.
■
All undocked users, as well as the total number of users that make up the difference in the total number allowed
by the Master License can log on to GoldMine. For example, on a 5-user GoldMine system with 3 undocked
users, 3 undocked users plus 2 other users can log on to GoldMine.
WARNING: If you undock all users, only those users will be able to log in. If you have not assigned
master rights to any of those undocked users, GoldMine administration cannot take place.
■
When used in combination with GoldSync, administrators can synchronize security settings to undocked users
including new passwords, menu items, and preferences in addition to data.
■
To work on an undocked basis, users must have an Undocked license on their laptop. Create an Undocked license
from the Master License or a Site license.

4. Review the information and click I Agree. The sub-license number for a remote user or an undocked user
appears in the Sub-license for Remote Site [Name of Site] dialog.
TIP: Write the sub-license number down or copy it to Windows Notepad. The sub-license number is
needed for each remote computer installation. Send the remote site license number to the
remote user who can type the license number during the GoldMine installation.
Licensing with Sub-licenses
Site License
A Site License is a multiple-user sub-license for a remote office and is designated with the alpha-prefix “S.” You
should have an S-license for each user at the remote site.
A GoldSync License (Y-license) is required only if you are using an S-license and want to synchronize using
GoldSync. You should have one Y-license to synchronize with the Master License and additional Y-licenses for
Undocked users synchronizing with your site.
NOTE: Y licenses are not entered in the Enter GoldMine Serial Number dialog. Only S licenses are entered
during registration (the GoldSync Section remains disabled). Clicking Next displays an ALERT: Suggested
Action(s)! if you try to enter Y licenses in the Enter GoldMine Serial Number dialog.
If this installation of GoldMine includes its own GoldSync sites, you may enter the applicable Y-type sub-licenses to
properly configure synchronization for this system.
Page 47 of 75
1. To configure applicable sub-license sites, select Tools > Configure > License Manager to enter your Y-type
license.
2. In the GoldMine Serial Number text boxes, type the S-license, Key Code, and Site Code you created in the
License Manager of the main GoldMine system.
3. In the GoldSync Serial Number text boxes, type the Y-license, Key Code, and Site Code you created in the License
Manager.
Undocked License
Undocked licenses are sub-licenses created from a Master License or a Site license and are designated by the letter
“U.” This license type is created for users who work with GoldMine at another location, on a laptop, or on a
workstation disconnected from the server copy of GoldMine.
Type the U-license, Key Code, and Site Code created in the License Manager.
Evaluation License
The Evaluation license allows you to evaluate GoldMine Premium Edition for 30 days. During or after this time you
can purchase a production GoldMine license and apply it to your database.
You will receive a warning of the approaching expiration of the evaluation license. If you do not apply a production
license within 30 days, product performance will degrade to make GoldMine unusable for practical use, but will
permit an administrator to access the application to add a license or re-evaluate the user interface.

Upgrading GoldMine
The upgrade process is intended to be used with GoldMine 9.0.0 or higher. There is no need to uninstall the
existing version, or remove folders and databases before proceeding . If you are upgrading from a version of
GoldMine Premium lower than 9.0.0, you must first upgrade to version 9.0.0 before upgrading to this version. If
you are upgrading from a version of GoldMine Standard or Corporate lower than 6.7, you must first upgrade to
version 6.7 before upgrading to version 9.0.0. Please review the ReadMe document and Installation Guide
associated with the interim upgrade version(s) during the upgrade process. Contact GoldMine Technical Support if
you have questions or need further assistance. See http://www.goldmine.com/goldmine-support/ for contact
information and options.
NOTE: Back up your existing GoldMine database and system before beginning the upgrade.
■
The license file for GoldMine Premium 2014.2 and newer is named LicenseGM94.bin.
○ If you are upgrading from a version previous to GoldMine Premium 2014.2, please ensure you have your
new license available before beginning the upgrade process.
○ Following upgrade of the server and all client workstations, please delete any remaining instances of
license.dbf, License.bin, or LicenseGM.bin stored in the GoldMine data directory to prevent
conflicts during synchronization.
■
If you are upgrading from a previous version of GoldMine Premium, you should understand that after
upgrading, you will no longer be able to use this system with any prior version of GoldMine.
■
A database conversion might be required when upgrading from earlier versions of GoldMine. This conversion
occurs automatically when GoldMine is installed into the path of the existing gmw.exe.
IMPORTANT: If you are upgrading a large Microsoft SQL Server database (5GB of data or more),
note that certain computers (limited computing power) require manual steps to upgrade the database
successfully.
■
After upgrading from a previous version of GoldMine Premium, a user with Master Rights must login. This will
allow GoldMine to complete the database upgrade. This step is not necessary when upgrading an undocked
(U-license) installation.
■
Undocked users must be on the same version and build of GoldMine as the site with which they sync. If you are
upgrading the server but are not upgrading Undocked Workstations until a later time, disable their sync sites
in the GoldSync Administration Center on the server. Reactivate their site when the undocked computer is
upgraded and is running the same version and build of GoldMine as the server.
Page 49 of 75
■
Ensure you have adequate disk space available prior to installation.
NOTE: If your company policy requires that you uninstall the previous version of GoldMine to run a “clean”
installation, you might have entries left in the Windows Registry which will cause GoldMine to assume you are
upgrading. These entries must be removed to allow you to install GoldMine. Consult with your System
Administrator before you attempt to remove any entries from your Windows Registry.
■
If you are upgrading from an earlier version of GoldMine Premium and are using add-on products, in some cases
the add-on products will need to be modified in order to work with this version of GoldMine Premium Edition.
Contact the provider of the add-on product for information.
■
Uninstall older version of GoldMine Links for Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, or GoldMine Integration Services
for Microsoft Outlook Links (GISMO): If these were installed with standalone installers. For more information
review https://community.ivanti.com/docs/DOC-61622.
■
GoldMine Premium installer may appear to hang when scanning the Mailbox\Attach directory on installations
that have a large mailbox attachment folder and file structure. To prevent this, move the folder
"Mailbox\Attach\" to another drive or another location outside of the GoldMine application folder, upgrade
GoldMine, and then move the “Mailbox\Attach\” directory back to its original location.
Upgrading Existing GoldMine
The following procedure describes an upgrade process for customers who have the following:
■
GoldMine 9.0.0 or newer
■
SQL Server/SQL Server Express GoldMine database
If you are upgrading from a previous version of GoldMine and have a large Microsoft SQL Server database (5GB of
data or more), refer to Migrating Large Databases.
IMPORTANT: Before upgrading GoldMine, we recommend backing up your existing database.

Page 56 of 75
Upgrading Remote Systems
This type of upgrade is for computers working disconnected from a Server but synchronizing with the main Server to
update GoldMine information: a remote Site or an Undocked Workstation computer.
■
If you are upgrading a Site, the Master installation provides the site administrator with the gmsetup.exe. For
more information, see Installation on a Server.
■
If updating an undocked computer, the Master installation provides the undocked computer user with the
gmsetup.exe. For more information, see Installation on an Undocked Computer.
■
If you are upgrading the server but are not upgrading a remote system until a later date, disable the site in the
GoldSync Administration Center until it is running the same version of GoldMine as the server.
To Upgrade a Remote System
1. Upgrade the Master GoldMine site.
2. Upgrade remote computers by sending them a gmsetup.exe installation file using one of these methods:
○ CD-ROM
○ FTP site
○ E-mail
○ Accessible network drive
NOTE: Database upgrade and universal search installation are automatic when the user selects the Yes
option. If the user selects not to install Universal Search, it can be installed later by running GoldMine with a
special paramet er: GMW /us:install (see Installation of Universal Search).
3. Remote users must run the installation CD or the gmsetup.exe on their computer following these upgrade
instructions.
After remote users upgrade to the same version of GoldMine as the server, they can begin synchronizing again.
Page 57 of 75
Configuring
After installation, system administrators must configure GoldMine to meet the needs of the organization. Some
preliminary setup is presented in this chapter. Additional configuration steps are presented in the online Help.
Configuration Considerations
In developing a GoldMine deployment strategy, the GoldMine administrator must carefully plan how the
GoldMine database should run and determine who is going to use it.
■
Creating users, user groups, security rights, and preferences including menu rights
■
Changing field labels
■
Creating user-defined fields and tabs
■
Setting up expanded details
■
Generating and modifying F2 Lookup lists
To Enhance GoldMine, Configure Other Areas:
■
Automated Processes
■
Reports
To Import Existing Databases Into GoldMine, Plan the Migration by Asking Yourself:
■
Is it essential to keep all existing data?
■
How out of date is the data?
■
Are all fields in the existing database required in GoldMine?
TIP: For details on these procedures, see the Administration topics in the GoldMine online help
Table of Contents, accessed by selecting Help > Help Topics on the GoldMine menu bar.
Page 58 of 75
Placing a Custom Image in the Logon Window
To display your organization’s logo or other graphic on GoldMine’s logon screen correctly, the file must be a bitmap
within a size limit of 150 x 250 pixels.
NOTE: GM.ini is a special initialization file that stores settings that apply globally to all users running the
same installation of GoldMine.
Place the bitmap file in the root GoldMine directory. Using a text editor such as Windows Notepad, open GM.ini.
Under the[GoldMine] section, add this line:
UserLogo=<path\<filename>
For example, if you place the graphics file MyLogo.bmp in your GoldMine directory, type this statement:
UserLogo=C:\GoldMine\MyLogo.bmp
Save GM.ini, then exit the text editor. Open GoldMine to display the changed login screen.

Migrating Large Databases
If you are upgrading from a previous version of GoldMine to version 2018.1 and have a large Microsoft SQL Server
database (5GB of data or more), we recommend you consider the following steps before proceeding with the
upgrade. Certain computers (limited computing power) require manual steps to upgrade the database
successfully.
Database Preparation
Back Up Your Database
This is especially important prior to migration. Also, a power failure or any unpredicted interruption may corrupt
data. Invaluable data can be restored from the backup.
Truncate the Transaction Log
For SQL 2008 or SQL 2012
1. From Start, select Microsoft SQL Server > SQL Server Management Studio.
2. After logging on to SQL Server, click the New Query toolbar button (or select File > New > Query with
Current Connection).
3. Run:
Alter Database dbname Set Recovery Simple
Alter Database dbname Set Recovery Full
4. Purge the syslog table from your current GoldMine version. Ensure you have backed up your database prior
to purging.
○ To purge logs, select Tools > Logs > GoldMine Logs to open the System Logs dialog. Select either
Process Monitor Logs, Maintenance Logs, or Error Logs. Right-click and select Purge Logs.
