GasMate Beta .26b

by on Jun.25, 2009, under GasMate


For those of you who have an old version(not this one) of GasMate you must follow the instructions in order to upgrade to the new version. I have made a change to the database(added cost in maintenance table) and therefore you must export the data and re-import it.

  1. Export your current data that is in GasMate.
  2. Open the CSV file in a text editor(openoffice/excel break it by adding/removing quotes) and make the following change:
    Change: M,”234″,”Oil Change”,”2009-06-25 21:32:57″,”notes”
    To: M,”234″,”Oil Change”,”2009-06-25 21:32:57″,”COST”,”Notes”
    where cost must be a number
    PLEASE NOTE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I have used quotes for the data to make sure nothing bad happens. The quotes are ONLY on the data, and not on the headers. Adding or changing the quote format WILL break stuff.
  3. Go to the directory where GasMate is installed(Program Files/GasMate) and delete the file GASMATE.SDF (database).
  4. Download the new cab
  5. Install the new cab
  6. Import the old data(modified csv) into GasMate

If you do not wish to keep your data, you can just delete the sdf file then install the new version.

If you do not have GasMate installed, you do not need to worry about this.

As always, .NET CF3.5 and SQLCE are required.
