Issue Details

I would like to migrate my sequences to a different version of TestStand. Can I use the TestStand Migration Utility to upgrade or downgrade the versions of any TestStand sequence?


The TestStand Migration Utility will not be able to either upgrade or downgrade the version of a sequence. This particular tool will be able to copy certain configuration and public component files from folders of previous versions of TestStand to the current installed version of TestStand. You can review the topic on the TestStand Migration Utility in the TestStand Help.
