1.1.3 3. Assess Which Existing Files To Carry Forward and Test

The success of your deployment depends on careful assessment and planning. After you determine which files to carry forward, you’ll need to convert them to Reflection Desktop files and then test these new files.

Assess which existing files are required

Assess which macros and configuration files are required for your new solution.

Analyze inventory data

Analyze your inventory data to make key technical and business decisions about what to carry forward and deploy.

Convert Reflection 14 or Extra! files to Reflection Desktop files

If you plan to carry forward any existing files, open the files in Reflection Desktop and save them (and any related supporting files) as Reflection Desktop files.

If any of your Reflection 14 or Extra! session files have macros that are locked and password-protected, these macros are lost when you open those files in Reflection Desktop. To import the macros, you’ll need to unlock the macro projects before you open the files.

NOTE:Reflection Desktop cannot import legacy macros when they are locked because it needs to access the macro projects to convert them.

Test all files in Reflection Desktop

Make sure that the macros, configurations, and other files work with Reflection Desktop.
