Using the Upgrade Analyzer

Reference Number: AA-01637 Views: 2664 0 Rating/ Voters

LumenVox provides a very useful application called LVUpgradeAnalyzer (in Windows) or lv_upgrade_analyzer (in Linux) which can be used to identify any potential problems that may be encountered when upgrading from an earlier version of LumenVox to some later version. 

Potential problems may include the need to update licenses, or maintenance, or may involve the need to install new language packs for example.

Version 12.1
Please note that as of LumenVox version 12.1, the LVUpgradeAnalyzer utility was removed as this is no longer required. It's original goal was to help migrate customers from versions prior to 10.0 which contained several significant changes. Any users of LumenVox products older than 10.0 should still use an old version of the Upgrade Analyzer tool to help migrate to a newer version of 10.0. Product changes since version 10.0 have been more incremental, and should not have significant impacts on users that are performing more recent version upgrades.

If you have any doubts or questions, please contact our support department for assistance.
Version 11.0
The LVUpgradeAnalyzer utility was improved in LumenVox version 11.0 to provide clearer and more meaningful feedback to users.

This utility is installed with its own installation package (Windows) in the installed directory (by default C:\Program Files\LumenVox\UpgradeAnalyzer\ ) and with the LumenVoxUpgradeAnalyzer RPM(Linux).

Usage is: LVUpgradeAnalyzer <options>

Typically, this utility is run without any parameters.

LumenVox Upgrade Analyzer reviews your system configuration and licenses to help determine the impact of upgrading to the latest version from any currently installed LumenVox products. The analysis will not change any system settings.

The LumenVox Upgrade Analyzer utilizes libraries from a windows component called "WMI Windows Installer Provider" (shown below) in order to access information from Windows Installer compliant applications.

This library allows the Upgrade Analyzer to determine version and installation status of any application installed using a Windows Installation compliant tool such as Install Shield.

When running the LumenVox Upgrade Analyzer, if you encounter the error "Could not process query results. Error code = 0x80041010", you will need to install the WMI libraries using "Add/remove programs -> Add/Remove windows components".

Then select the options as shown below.
