Updating the DBXL Administration Tool after installing Office 2013



After updating your Microsoft Office to an MS Office 2013 version, the DBXL Administration Tool is left outdated and becomes unusable. To cut the explanation short, previous versions of DAT are not compatible with Office 2013. And here is a quick guide on how to update the DAT Template:

1.       Log-on to the server where DBXL is installed.

2.       Proceed to the folder location where the DAT template is stored and replace the file with this version (in a non-SharePoint default installation, the template should be located here: C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\QdabraWebService\install).

3.       After updating the file, open the following URL in IE: http://<servername>/QdabraWebService/DbxlAdmin.asmx (If on Windows, Vista or Windows Server 2008, run Internet Explorer as Administrator.)


4.       Click on the PublishDATFormTemplate method.


5.       Enter the path of the DAT-Template form, which is saved to the local drive (i.e. C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\QdabraWebService\install\DAT-template.xsn).

6.       Call PublishDATFormTemplate method by clicking on the Invoke button.

The DBXL Administration Tool should now have an updated DAT template for MS Office 2013.
