How do I obtain Change Manager 5.0 product and license? With the recent CodeGear acquisition, we have implemented new software licensing technology and processes. Change Manager is the first Embarcadero DatabaseGear product to incorporate this new license technology that has been successfully used by CodeGear customers for years. To obtain your license, please follow the instructions below:
For Workstation licenses (non-concurrent):
You must first obtain a retail license serial number. If you are the license holder, follow the instructions in your upgrade notice email and go to the new Embarcadero Maintenance Delivery Portal to access your product license and serial number information.
If you do not have the product, click here to download.
For Concurrent licenses: Embarcadero is transitioning to a new licenses server technology called the Embarcadero License Center (ELC). See the section below entitled For Concurrent License Customers and your upgrade notice email for details on how to obtain, install, and license ELC.
If you are an end-user: Please contact the individual in your organization who manages Embarcadero licensing. If you do not know who that is, contact Embarcadero Support, and someone will assist you in locating this individual.
Change Manager Installation Guide This document provides step-by-step instructions for installing Change Manager 5.0. Note: Be sure you fully understand these steps before installing Change Manager 5.0. You may want to continue using your prior version alongside version 5.0 until you are ready to fully transition to version 5.0.
Importing Objects from CM/Schema 4.0 In order to import schema comparison jobs, you need to download an upgrade to CM/Schema 4.0 and install it before installing version 5.0 or 5.0.1. You can verify that you have the upgrade installed by following these steps:
Launch CM/Schema 4.0
Click Help -> About
Verify that the version is Embarcadero CM/Schema Version 4.0.0 (Build 943)
This upgrade build allows Change Manager 5.0, which uses an XML format for job, to interpret and convert your existing version 4.0 job files. Please be sure to follow all the steps within the import wizard, including importing data sources. If Change Manager 5.0 does not import all version 4.0 data sources first, you may not be able to import all of the jobs.
NOTE: If you already installed Change Manager 5.0 and your CM/Schema jobs were NOT imported, please follow these steps:
Download and install the CM/Schema 4.0 upgrade build 943
Install Change Manager 5.0.1
Launch Change Manager 5.0.1
Select File -> Import from the main menu
