Safe to upgrade to new OSX?

Post by SandroCosta1 » Wed Mar 20, 2019 12:40 am

I remember some time ago I did an "upgrade" on my Macbook and the DMXIS program did NOT like that and was not responding until I uploaded a BETA version of the program.

Am I safe to upgrade to the new OSX with DMXIS program?

Absolutely safe, so long as you install DMXIS 1.6.3.

Thanks Dave.
FYI, I clicked on the link on the forum in this board and it said "click here" for latest DMXIS upgrade, but said it couldn't be found?

Thanks, I've fixed that link now.

Remember to backup your DMXIS data (banks & presets) before upgrading. Basically, just make a safe copy of this folder:

/Library/Application Support/ENTTEC/DMXIS

Ok, just finished update to new OSx and installed the 1.6.3 version of DMXIS, plugged in my DMXIS box and everything is there from my shows, not currently connected to any fixtures but will try tomorrow and make sure it's working. :)

Hopefully should all be good!
Thanks Dave.

Just a quick update. Plugged in 4 of my fixtures yesterday and everything is working as it should. So far so good. Thanks for your assistance. :)

Hello. I just upgraded to 1.6.3. I saved the global folder "/Library/Application Support/ENTTEC/DMXIS" outside to an external HD. I installed the new software and then copied the DMXIS folder in, and it won't pull up any of my presets. Am I doing something wrong?

  • Click on the Finder icon in the macOS Dock
  • Press Cmd-Shift-G (Go to the folder appears)
  • Type "/Library/Application Support/ENTTEC/DMXIS" and click Go
Do you see your DMXIS banks & presets inside the Presets or Shows folder? If not, then you have not copied in your data correctly.
