Topic: Importing V7 Database Into V8 Without Waiting The Week Timeframe
I made a bunch of changes last night in v7 to tracks on an older laptop (added cue points, file edits, created comments, etc), and I keep everything on an external drive so I can swap it between computers. I fired up my gig laptop that has V8 on it, and it didn't import the V7 database, even though I deleted the V8 one.
I have a large gig on Saturday and I need the V7 one to import, but I'm fearful that if it takes the week timeframe like so many have stated, then the stuff I did to tracks last night won't be ready in V8 until next week. So what can I do to resolve this other than making all the edits all over again but this time in V8?

Every single post I've read on here about the import has said that V8 will not import a V7 database until some time has gone by. Most people have said the time limit is a week and that's not good.

If not mistaken its the settings <database> and probably <timestamp> so you can try to open settings.xml and delete those lines

If there is no v8 database it should always import from the v7 database.
(Note that in that case it is done automatically, so you will not get any pop ups)

- Does V8 generates database.xml files large enough as your v7 ones ?
- Do you get your Filter/Virtual folders (in case you have such in v7 DB) ?
- Do the Hotcues of your tracks show up in v8 ? Does Search work as expected ?
- Or is just some Database fields that don't show up the same way, and if so, which ones ?
