Well should I install SQL and Emerald 2.5 on the new machine and then
just dump the Emerald DB to the new machine? Will that work?....then
according to below there you don't do the upgrade procedure and things
work fine? Seems like the old DB will have different structural
differences. I look forward to the DOCS! You guys are really on top
of it...awesome product.
