Switch from PhraseExpress Server

A PhraseExpress Server installation can seamlessly be upgraded to a Microsoft SQL Server setup with this easy procedure:

  1. Keep running the PhraseExpress Server.
  2. Install the PhraseExpress SQL Client Manager which includes the option to install a free Microsoft SQL Server (Express Edition).
  3. If you keep the PhraseExpress SQL Client Manager running, the to be installed new PhraseExpress clients can find and connect to the SQL server without additional configuration.
  4. Upgrade only one of the PhraseExpress client(s). The new PhraseExpress client will convert the PhraseExpress Server phrase file to a Microsoft SQL server database. Please note that this can take a while for bigger phrase files.
  5. Uninstall the PhraseExpress Server.
  6. Upgrade the PhraseExpress clients on the remaining computers.
