Now that DevTest 8.0.1 is GA (see @Stefana's post from earlier today), how about upgrading to this latest version that includes fixes to reported defects as well as some product enhancements?

 

See here for a PDF that takes you through the changes in licensing, the importance of Enterprise Dashboard and then migration your existing version (Lisa 6 and above) to DevTest 8.0.1.


Some important topics covered in the doc -

  • Name change
  • Understand the key points prior to migration
  • Pre-Installation checklist (includes backing up your data)
  • Installation
  • Post-Installation Tasks
  • Remote components configuration
  • Verifying Installation


Enjoy!
