Since we have released many DocuWare versions in the past, it can be confusing from which DocuWare version you can update. The following chart shows you the possible update paths you can choose, to get to your desired DocuWare version.

Additional Information

NOTE: An ODBC file cabinet can be open in any version of DocuWare. DocuWare 5 thick client (Windows client) is a hybrid version that can act like a DocuWare 4 client. In other words, you can register or create any DocuWare 4 ODBC file cabinet with a DocuWare 5.x thick client. This will facilitate the conversion from DocuWare 4 ODBC type file cabinet to any version of DocuWare 5/6.x.

    The chart reflects the most recent upgrade paths. This article is updated frequently, to add the upgrade path for the newest DocuWare version.

  • This chart seems to conflict with another graphic on your site stating that any version from 6.7 or higher can update directly to version 7.

    Is there a definitive article for upgrade paths?  We are currently on version 6.10 and would like to update to a more recent version.
