Using the new Designer with previous solutions

Solutions that are created or upgraded to the new Designer can no longer be opened in previous versions of the Designer or Server.

Opening Previous Solutions

  1. Make a backup copy of your solution file (.lsoz). The new release will make changes to the solution file that cannot be undone. You will be warned about this in the popup.

  2. The solution will automatically be upgraded to be used in the new Linx Designer.

  3. Review your solution including port numbers (See: Server Port Changes below). If you are calling a Linx process through web services, change to the new port number.

Deploying Solutions

  1. When using the latest version of the Designer, you can only deploy to the new Server.

  2. To upgrade and install the new Server, click Deploy within the Designer or visit

Server Port Changes
Like the Designer, the new Server can be installed side by side with a previous version. To do so, you must allocate a different port number (e.g. 8032). The default port for previous versions is 8022.

  1. To deploy,

a) Click Deploy from the Designer.
b) Add your new Linx Server (https://localhost:yournewport).

In the Linx Server:
c) The solution should start automatically.
d) Start the services in the solution.

  1. Log into your previous version of the Linx Server. Stop all the services of your solution, or alternatively remove the solution completely.
