The Data Collector Tool was made available when Noah 4 was first released back in 2011 to move data from NOAH 3 to a Noah 4 installation on a new computer. The Data Collector Tool is no longer supported in Noah 4.5 and later.
In Noah 4.5 and 4.5.1, if the user launches the Noah 4 External Migration Tool and browses to an nmig2 file created on NOAH 3 they will receive a Migration Error ‘Error encounter’.
In Noah 4.7, the Noah 4 External Migration Tool is removed from Windows Start menu. To move NOAH 3 data from an old computer to a new Noah 4 computer, use the Export Import function detailed here
Noah 4 will still migrate a Noah 3 database if installed on the same computer.
The Data Collector Tool is still supported with Noah 4.4.
