Notes on upgrading from ProDrive to Polaris Play: Ingest

a: Uninstall first!

Please uninstall ProDrive if it's currently installed

b: Copy licenses

Prodrive licenses (*.lice) will work fine with Polaris Play Ingest, but they'll need to be moved from the ProDrive folder
to the Polaris Play Ingest folder.

Move *.lice from C:\Program Files(x86)\Omneon\ProDrive to C:\Program Files(x86)\Harmonic\Polaris Play Ingest.

c: Prodrive & Polaris Play Ingest Registry entries.

ProDrive has some hidden configuration settings accessibly only via the Windows registry.

Polairs Play Ingest supports the same settings, but they are in a different location. If any of these settings have been
modified manually by RegEdit, they will need to be copied to the new location.
Old location : HKLM\SOFTWARE\Omneon\\ProDrive\Config
New location : HKLM\SOFTWARE\Harmonic\Polaris Play Ingest\Config

Registry Entries :

STRING: Password : password for access to configuration screen.
STRING: DatabaseLocation: location of SQLite database for BXF and scheduled ingest
