HOW TO INSTALL RADAR SOFTWARE
_______
SOFTWARE VERSION 2.54 _______________________________
Installing the version 2.54 software onto RADAR:
Backup current sessions. This is a standard precaution, but it is particularly essential for audio
drives that are being converted to waveform mode, since all audio will be erased on these drives
in step 3. When the upgrade is complete, and the backups are restored, waveforms will be
generated automatically for these projects.
If upgrading from Version 2.06 and created macros in Version 2.06, the macro file must be
deleted from RADAR’s IDE drive before upgrading. To delete the file, a QWERTY keyboard will
need to be connected to the RADAR unit. Reboot and wait until the screen clears and the prompt
RUN RADAR? [NY] appears. Type N to enter DOS mode, then type del C:\MACROS.BIN to
delete the macro file.
For audio drives that are being converted from non-waveform to waveform mode:
Choose ERASE ALL DISKS from the PROJECT menu and answer YES. Answer YES again to
to create an
the LOSE ALL AUDIO prompt. A prompt will ask to create a project. Press
empty, untitled project. Repeat this step to erase each audio drive that is being converted to
waveform mode.
For other audio drives:
Choose UPGRADE SYSTEM from the SYSTEM menu and answer YES”. Press the
key,
RADAR will save all projects on the audio drive in a version-independent (upgrade) format. This
operation will take approximately 10 seconds per project. When it is complete, the RE-8 II LCD
will say:
INSERT UPGRADE
FLOPPY & REBOOT
If there is another audio drive, swap it into the drive bay, reboot RADAR, and repeat this step.
Continue until all audio drives have either been erased or put into upgrade mode.

INSTALLING RADAR
SOFTWARE V2.52
(1-2 minutes)
When the install is complete the LCD displays:
INSTALL OK
REBOOT SYSTEM
Remove the floppy disk and reboot RADAR.
For audio drives that are being converted from non-waveform to waveform mode:
Ignore any WRONG OP SYS S/W messages since the audio drives is to be initialized with the
new software. Use the INIT DISK option in the DIAGNOSTICS menu to reinitialize the disk.
Reply YES to both the INIT FOR WAVES prompt and the ERASE OLD DATA prompt. Repeat
this step for each audio drive that is being converted to waveform mode.
For other audio drives:
Note that when RADAR mounts the drive, all projects will automatically be upgraded to version
2.52 format. This operation will take approximately 10 seconds per project. If there is another
audio drive which was put into upgrade mode in step 3, unmount the current drive, swap the next
audio drive into the drive bay, and mount it. Repeat this step for each additional audio drive.
For audio drives that are being converted from non-waveform to waveform mode, restore current
sessions from the backup. RADAR will automatically generate waveforms for the restored
projects.
