I had installed Orthanc-0.9.4 on November 2015 and I updated yesterday to the latest version (by downloading OrthancInstaller-Win64-18.5.2.exe) for Windows 64. The new version is running but how to I import the files from the previous version?

This is explained in the Orthanc Book:
thank you for you reply.
Regarding option 1 from the documentation:
I already tried to upgrade the database but I get a message from command prompt that the database is up to date (see image attached).
Regarding option 2 from the documentation:
I do not have python installed on my Windows Server 2008 R2
Regarding option 3 from the documentation:
I cannot have both versions of orthanc running since it operates on the same server
When running “–upgrade”, you must provide the link to the folder containing the configuration files that are used by Orthanc. For instance:
“C:\Program Files\Orthanc Server\Orthanc.exe” --upgrade "C:\Program Files\Orthanc Server\Configuration"
Again, thank you for your insight.
Let me provide a few more details. Orthanc-0.9.4 was running on a 1 TB volume; the configuration file was on directory F:\PACS and the storage folder was on directory F:\PACS\OrthancStorage.
The new version (OrthancInstaller-Win64-18.5.2.exe) runs on different 6TB volume. The configuration file is located in C:\Program Files\Orthanc Server\Configuration and the storage folder in G:\PACS.
So when it comes to run upgrade which configuration file should I pass as a parameter the first or the second? As far as I know inside the json file the tag “StorageDirectory” points to the path where images should be stored. Is there a tag indicating the old path?
Or, do you mean that I copy the contents of the old configuration to the storage folder of the new configuration and then run upgrade with the newest configuration file as a parameter?
Thank you in advance
Hello Sebastien, all,
just a note to close the thread. The algorithm described solved the problem. It takes some time though. I took me almost a day and a half to copy the files and another two days for the database to update. Now it works OK. All the previous studies are loaded in the new instance of Orthanc.
Keep up the good work
