I've installed BusinessWorks 2013 and am having problems converting my 2012 data files. I copied my original BW directory to a new directory (thus cleaned out the original BW directory). I successfully installed the new 2013. However, when I run the converter I get the error message:
File Error: (BWProgramPath) The specified path is invalid.
However, I have given it path to the 2012 program files. Also the instructions state to give it the path where the BWW.EXE program resides. We do not have this program in our 2012 install.
Why did you MOVE your data before you complete the BW2013 install? move it back or restore your backup (if you made one)
In reply to Vince Settipane:
Our BW is runs on Windows 2008 on a share named "acct". I want to continue to use this share going forward. So according to the instructions You can not install the new BW2013 over the BW2012. So I moved all the BW2012 to a different directory and did the BW2013 in the "acct" directory. However, when I try to do the conversion and set the directory to the BW2012 I get that error.
Appears you are running the incorrect program. If it is asking for BWW.exe you are trying to run the Database Converter for v12. If you are on version 2012 you need to run the Database Update program.
