When upgrading Silk Test Workbench to the current version, the existing database must be converted to be compatible with the new software. Silk Test Workbench automatically checks the database schema version when a database is loaded and displays a warning if database upgrading is required. The warning appears any time the database schema is not the same as the current Silk Test Workbench schema. The database can be converted with the Database Maintenance utility.
The conversion speed is related to the amount of data being converted. Databases with large amounts of data may experience long conversion times. After the conversion, the current database version number appears.
