Upgrading A Paradise Server

1) To begin, navigate to the “Downloads” folder in Windows Explorer, or whichever folder the Paradise install executable is saved to, and right-click on the ParadiseSetup installation executable. Select “Run as administrator.”

9) Paradise is installed to the default locations inside the “Program Files” and “ProgramData” folders underneath a “Geophysical Insights” folder. Click “Next” to progress.

10) The path to the PDM folder is initialized in the “Use Existing Folders” edit field.  Click “Next” to progress.

11) Complete the “Windows Service Password” and “Confirm Windows Service Password” fields with the user login password associated with the user name in the “Windows Service User Name” field, that is, the password that the user logs onto the computer with. Check that the path to the “Database Backup Folder” is correct. Click “Next” to progress.

12) Click “Install” to initiate the installation.

“Generate System Information report” – Creates a file, Geophysical.SystemInformation.txt, located at C:\Program Files\Geophysical Insights, from the “msinfo32.exe /report” command, that describes configuration information about the computer and its operating system.

“Generate IP Configuration report” – Creates a file, Geophysical.IPConfig, located at C:\Program Files\Geophysical Insights, from the “ipconfig.exe /all” command, that displays all current TCP/IP network configuration values. This file is used to retrieve the MAC address of the computer if a license file needs to be generated.

13) Click “OK”  to begin the database backup.

“Show the Windows Installer log” – This is a log of all installation events.  Typically used if there was a problem with the installation.

15) If additional AASPI attributes for the Attribute Generator have been installed, a reboot of the computer is required for the AASPI attributes for the Attribute Generator to function properly. The user may choose to reboot at this time or at a later time. If additional AASPI attributes for the Attribute Generator were not installed, this message will not appear.

16) Check that the ParadiseIsland service is running in the Services window.  To open the Services window, left-click on the “Start” button in the left-hand corner of the computer screen.  Depending on the version of Windows that is installed, the “Start” button in the bottom left-hand corner of the computer screen looks like:

On Windows 8 machines, click on the “Start” button in the bottom left-hand corner of the computer screen, and a blank edit field will appear only after typing the word “Services”.

18) In the Services dialog, check that the “Status” of the ParadiseIsland service is “Started” or “Running,” depending on the version of the Windows operating system that is running. If the status of the ParadiseIsland service is “Started” or “Running,” then the Services window can be closed, and Paradise is finished upgrading.

If the “Status” is neither “Started” nor “Running,” then right-click on the ParadiseIsland listing in the Services dialog, and select “Properties.”

19) Select the second tab entitled, “Log On,” and enter the user’s log on password twice. Click “OK.”  It is important to note that the owner of the ParadiseIsland service should be an administrator on the computer. Run the ParadiseIsland service as a Local System account by selecting the “Local System account” radio button, but Paradise will then be only able to access files and folders on the computer that Paradise is installed on, and will not be able to access files and folders across the network. This is particularly relevant with regards to the location of the “Paradise” folder and its nested “PDM” folder containing the seismic volumes that Paradise creates and uses.

20) Right-click on the ParadiseIsland service, and select “Start.”

21) The status of the ParadiseIsland service should be “Started” or “Running,” depending on the version of the Windows operating system that you have on the computer.
