The PF Opener File simplifies the upgrade process in several ways.
2) Unzip the file and place the PERFECT_FIT file in your Pfit folder located at Computer > C Drive > Pfit.
3) Right click on the PERFECT_FIT file and select Send To > Desktop (create shortcut).
If you have an older version of the opener (ending in “a” or “b”), it should be deleted, as well as its shortcut.
The PERFECT_FIT opener field should NEVER be put in the Externals folder.
The PERFECT FIT Opener File is now set up for a single user.
Use the PERFECT_FIT shortcut on the desktop to log into Perfect Fit.
To perform an upgrade copy the unzipped upgrade PF7 file into the Pfit folder.
Log into Perfect Fit with the PERFECT_FIT desktop shortcut. Your previous version will automatically be moved to the Old Versions
folder and the upgrade will begin.
This file can be used with Terminal Server/Remote Desktop, the same way.
In this case, make your ” smart shortcut” to the PERFECT_FIT library.
The new version can be placed in the PFIT folder while the user is in PF. In that case, when the user exits PF and sign in again it will do the upgrade.
Open the PFShared folder on the server.
If you don’t already have an Updates Folder, create a new folder, within PFShared, and name it Updates.
To upgrade all users, simply place the new PF7 version, unzipped, into the Updates folder. The next time a user logs in with their PERFECT_FIT shortcut on their own computer the new file will automatically be moved to their PFIT folder and will move the previous library into the old versions folder.
If you place an externals file in the Updates folder, it will be installed in the users External folder automatically as well.
To update a single user with an external library just copy it to their PFIT folder. Do no put it in the Externals folder. It will be moved automatically.
This update process relies on the file names, so do not change the name of any of the files.
