  3. Name your new application.

  4. Follow the prompts to reach the database selection page

  5. Select Attach to Existing Database and select the database you restored.

  6. Select OK once the upgrade has completed.

  7. If you have a Customer License (.lic) file, copy it into the webserver (ApplicationName)\bin directory and remove the Trial license file.

  8. Run the Data Mart ETL program.
