How to restore lost Visual Integrator (VI) Jobs in Sage ERP 100

Thanks to Wayne Schulz for finding this one.

If you ever accidentally delete a VI Job and need to figure out how to restore from a backup:

VI (Visual Integrator) jobs cannot be restored individually from backup files. The entire VI sub directory in the …\MAS90\ folder must be restored when jobs are lost or damaged. Import job settings are saved in multiple data files and each VI data file contains data for multiple import jobs. Unlike other modules where data files and program files stored in separate sub-directories, VI sub-directory contains both.

In the case where a previous job was lost and there are new jobs that need to be retained:

From Windows Explorer, browse to the …\MAS90\VI directory on the server.

Rename the VI directory to VIOLD.

From a backup, restore the ….\MAS90\VI directory to the server …\MAS90\ directory.

Note: In Sage MAS 90 and 200 version 4.0 and later, restore the the …\Mas90\Mas_System\VI_* files also.

Log into Sage MAS 90.

Expand Visual Integrator and Main. Double-click Job Export.

Locate the job that must be replaced and export the jobs out.

Exit Sage MAS 90.

From Windows Explorer, browse to the …\MAS90\ directory on the server.

Delete the restored VI directory

Rename the system VIOLD directory back to VI.

Log into Sage MAS 90.

Expand Visual Integrator and Main. Double-click Job Import.

Import the jobs that were exported out earlier into Visual Integrator.
