Important Upgrade Information

Upgrading from CopyMove version 3.9 or earlier will require a complete reinstall of the CopyMove WSP solution packages. That is, they cannot be upgraded using the Upgrade-CopyMove.cmd script. The reinstall is completely safe and all CopyMove settings will remain in place. Please follow this procedure to upgrade:

  1. Download and unzip CopyMove 2013 version 3.12 to the SharePoint server that hosts Central Administration.
  2. Uninstall CopyMove 2013 using the Uninstall-CopyMove.cmd script.
  3. Wait for the uninstall to complete.
  4. Reset IIS and the SharePoint timer service (SPTimerV4) on all SharePoint servers in the farm. The CopyMove script Reset-AllServers.cmd can help do this without further effort.
  5. Install the new version using the Install-CopyMove.cmd script.
  6. When prompted by the script, press ENTER to also install the CopyMove 2010 support solutions. Otherwise press ESC.
  7. Wait for the install to complete.
  8. Done.

The reinstall procedure is necessary as the new version introduces some structural changes in the deployment. Changes that would not be handled correctly by upgrading the WSP solutions. After the reinstall, it will again be possible to upgrade the CopyMove WSP solutions using the Upgrade-CopyMove.cmd script.

Feature Highlight

CopyMove 3.12 introduces new configuration settings at the level of the SharePoint list. The settings can managed with the new PowerShell cmdlet Set-CopyMoveListConfiguration or with the new list settings page in the SharePoint Web UI. The page can be reached from a new link on the SharePoint list settings page.
