What do you test before you upgrade?

Open question to all the CAD Admins on the forum:


What are you testing for before you give the okay to do a major version upgrade your SW deployments?


(I'm presuming that as CAD admin, you've downloaded and installed a local instance of the new version for testing.)


Most of the big concerns for me are:

  • Not really a "test" issue, but re-saving all templates to upgraded version, and have them ready to overwrite (or point to a new folder in system settings) when the switch happens.
  • Make sure that all macros still function in the new edition.
  • See if there are any performance issues with any of your key workflow steps (an example in my case:  see if Pack and Go takes longer on our file sets)
  • Export updated settings via .sldreg file and be prepared to distribute when you switch over.
  • ... and this is where I start running out of things to do.
