Occasionally it may become necessary to “restore” CHIP-AZ. The steps to be taken are dependent on what has happened to the system and what is available to recover from backup.
First we will cover the basic structure of the CHIP-AZ application.
CHIP is an MS Access based program.
Application is split into two pieces:
CHIP2000_be.mdb - the database and
CHIP2000.mde - the programmatic front end
CHIP-AZ is the desktop shortcut that points to CHIP2000.mde.
C:\CHIP2000 is the default folder location for the database and program. This folder is required. If you have networked CHIP-AZ or manage multiple schools on one computer, the default folder location may be different.
Looking at C:\CHIP2000 we might see the following after the initial installation.
Minimally we need to recover the most current copy of CHIP2000_be.mdb. This file contains the CHIP-AZ data. It should be available to restore from your backup location. What that backup location was is a district/school issue. CHIP-AZ Support does not manage nor is it responsible for configuring your backup. Some districts use CHIPSync with CHIPBack. These products are supported by GLS www.GLS-TC.com, not CHIP-AZ Support. Do not restore CHIP2000_be.mdb yet.
We are going to do a full install so we get current copies of several files in place.
If you have networked CHIP-AZ or manage multiple schools on one computer, the default folder location may be different. Contact CHIP-AZ Support for assistance.
