Bootsy,

I have installed Cuelux v1.6.6 to a clean computer.
Our main system works (almost) perfect and is on v1.4.5.
I have copied the visual production directories in " my documents" from our main pc to the new pc.
Unfortunatly v1.6.6. sees only half of my fixtures and no cues etc etc.

What is going wrong?

I am very afraid to update our main pc directly to 1.6.6. because if anything goes wrong everything is down.

Hi Daan,

Perhaps you have some custom personalities in the Personalities/Factory folder... Those get overwritten whenever a new version of the software is run.
Custom personalities should go in the Personalities/user folder instead. But, for now that will probably not fix it because the showfile has them marked as factory fixtures.
Can you copy the showfile and the "factory" folder again from the backup to the Visual Productions folder? If you do this after the software has run, it will not overwrite for this version.
(make sure you don't overwrite the "version.txt" with an older one, that will trigger an overwrite again...)

Let me know.
Greetings,
Bootsy
