Upgrading from 2.0 Files

To upgrade and maintain your account settings and shipping history, follow these instructions:


  • Move the four existing UPS files off FM Server to a workstation (if hosted) to a folder on your desktop
  • Make a backup of the 4 UPS files
DO NOT REPLACE THE FILES IN THE EXISTING NRGship UPS Pro FOLDER as this will overwrite your preferences and data!

Step 2 of 3: UPGRADING

NOTE: Any modifications to the NRGship files, including layout and user script modifications will NOT be brought over into your upgraded files. You will need make these changes after upgrading!

NOTE: If your files were hosted using Encryption at Rest (EAR) you will be prompted to enter your encryption password for each table that imports - approximately 20 times total

FileMaker Pro 12 and above

  • Open up the existing NRGship UPS Pro folder
  • Locate NRGship UPS Pro Prefs.fmp12 and rename to NRGship UPS Pro Prefs.bak.fmp12
  • Locate NRGship UPS Pro Data.fmp12 and rename to NRGship UPS Pro Data.bak.fmp12
  • Now it's safe to copy the 4 new files from the desktop folder to the new NRGship UPS Pro folder. Mac OS or Windows will ask you if it's OK to replace 2 of the files. Replace.
  • Open the new NRGship UPS Pro file and it will ask if you'd like to update from backup data. Press the OK button to continue.
  • If your files were hosted, put the new files back on your server via the Upload To Server... menu option to ensure proper file permissions
  • Once you have completed the upgrade you should keep a copy of the original files on your desktop until verify proper operation

If you accidentially cancel the auto update you can manually upgrade from Preferences

  • Open NRGship UPS Pro > Preferences > Defaults > Advanced
  • Click the "Import Prefs" button and it will import your original preferences.
  • Click the "Import Data" button and it will import your shipping history.
  • The update should now be complete.
  • You can delete the .bak files you created, but make sure you have your backup.
  • With FileMaker v12 and above, plugin updates are now self-installed. If you incur errors when launching NRGship you may need to remove existing plugins from the FileMaker Extensions folder as well as ~/Library/Application Support/FileMaker/Extensions (Mac) or {localappdata}/FileMaker/Extensions (Win)
