This is an old revision of the document!
The old server, where the VieVS 2.3 release is maintained will be shut down on July 10, 2017. Please be prepared and set up SSH keys in time for accessing the new repository of VieVS 3.0.
The previous VieVS release (2.3) will still be available until 2017-07-10 on our old Server (directory
/VieVS/). Afterwards it will be deleted and won't be available for the users any more.
Just download the content of the
/_down/vievs/ directory from our server using the provided username and password.
Copy all files to a local VieVS root directory of your choice. If you want to use the same installation directory as used for a previous VieVS 2.2 installation, please delete all files in the /COMPILE/ and /WORK/ directories first.
How to access our ftp server and how to download VieVS is described here: Download VieVS via SFTP
Basically all data files are compatible.
The VieVS data structures located in <vievs_root>/DATA/LEVEL<x>/ created with VieVS 2.3 may not work any more with VieVS 3.0 due to changes in the structure content.
Lots of further changes were applied which are not listed here.
