Pre-Installation Notes

  • Verify that you are currently using Version 9.  If you are not using 9.0 please contact us.  The version is listed at the bottom of the administration console.
  • Make a backup copy of your database as this upgrade will modify the database.  

Installation Instructions

  1. Unzip the contents of eNewsletterProEnterprise11UpgradeFrom9.zip in a temporary location somewhere on the server where eNewsletter Pro is installed.  You will now see the following folders:

  2. Next, Execute the SQL script called enewsletterpro11UpgradeFrom9.sql on your existing eNewsletter Pro Enterprise database.  The script is found in the folder where you unzipped the files in step 1.  This script is executed in SQL query analyzer.  If unsure how to do this, please review steps 6-7 of the original install instructions.  Be absolutely certain that you select the proper database in the drop-down menu before executing the script.   Please note this script may take 5-15 minutes to run.
  3. Once the above script has executed, you will see a number of messages indicating various rows were affected.  For example...(89 row(s) affected)  Scan all messages and make sure no errors occurred.  If an error occurred, email us the error and discontinue the upgrade.  If an error occurred you may wish to restore the database backup until we can resolve the issue. 

    If the database has successfully been upgraded, proceed to the next section.

Install Updated Web Files and Upgrade existing Data

  1. Version 11 includes changes to the Root web.config  Because this file also holds your custom database connection string, you must first enter your database connection into the web.config file before copying the updated files.  If you don't your database connection will break after the upgrade.  Also, if you added any custom tags to the web.config they should also be transferred. To do so...

    Open the web.config for your EXISTING installation of eNewsletter Pro.  Find this line and copy the portion shown in GREEN:

    <add name="DBConnectionString" connectionString="
    server=(LOCAL);UID=youruserid;PWD=yourpass;DATABASE=eNewsletterPro" />

    Now, open the web.config found in the "eNewsletterPro" folder of the upgrade files.  Replace the sample connection string with your full connection string.

    <add name="DBConnectionString" connectionString="
    server=(LOCAL);UID=youruserid;PWD=yourpass;DATABASE=eNewsletterPro" />

    Save the file.

  2. Before copying files, delete the entire CuteSoft_Client folder from the web site where eNewsletter Pro is installed.
  3. Copy the files and folders from the folder called "eNewsletterPro" to the web folder where eNewsletter Pro is installed.  Typically this is http://www.yourdomain.com/enewsletterpro/.  Replace any existing files if prompted.  Be sure to include all folders and subfolders such as Admin, Bin, Images, User etc.
  4. Login to the admin console and user console to make sure the web interface is loading properly.

Install Updated Mail Delivery Engine and SMTP Express Update

Note: You should be logged in as the administrator or an account with administrative privileges.  You should be logged in using the same account under which the software was originally installed.
