Migrate from IDE 4.5, IDE 4.6 or IDE 4.7 to IDE 5.0 (SDP 6.6.0)

About migrating

When you migrate your workspace and projects from the IDE 4.5 (SDP 6.4.0), IDE 4.6 (SDP 6.4.1), or IDE 4.7 (SDP 6.5.0) to IDE 5.0 (SDP version 6.6.0), there are two areas that require updating: your workspace and the migration of your existing projects.

Migrate your workspace

Your workspace is automatically upgraded the first time you launch the new IDE. This process is entirely automated and cannot be prevented. If you need to revert to an older version of the IDE, be sure to read Reverting to an older version of the IDE. As well, you should note the following:

Migrate your projects

Your projects are automatically upgraded to take advantage of the new IDE features, except for your managed make projects.
Note: If you want to use any existing managed make projects created in earlier versions of the IDE in QNX Momentics IDE version 4.6 and later, these projects can't automatically be converted. You'll need to create a new managed make project in QNX Momentics IDE version 5.0 for each project you want to convert, and then copy the source code directly to the new project.

To complete the migration of your projects to the new IDE:

If your project is a QNX C/C++ project:
  1. Select QNX C/C++ Project in the list on the left, then the Make Builder tab to display the Make Builder settings:
  2. Check the Clean box in the Workbench Build Behavior group, and enter clean in the text field.
  3. Click Apply to save your settings, or OK to save your settings and close the dialog.
  4. Repeat this process for each of your projects.
If your project was a Make C/C++ project:
  1. Follow the instructions in Creating an empty Makefile project.
  2. Import your project data into the newly created project.
  3. Follow these steps for each make project.

When you migrate your workspace and projects, you might need to perform some additional updates (see Migrate your projects; which is done automatically by the IDE, except for managed make projects.)
