Ive installed the IHSDM 2009 CPM Beta Release. As a previous user of the IHSDM how should I start?
Start IHSDM, open the Help Browser (from the main menu “Help/ Help Browser”) and read through the “Release Notes for 2009 CPM Beta Release” (for version 5.3.0; June 30, 2009) and the “Release Notes for 2009 CPM Beta Release (November 2009 update)” (for version 5.3.1; November 13, 2009 update). Though you should not install the 2009 CPM Beta Release over the 2008 Release, you can archive your 2008 Release projects individually (via Project Operations > Archive Project), then un-archive them in the 2009 CPM Beta Release (via User Operations > Un-archive Project). For these projects, you will not be able to access archived Evaluation Reports via the 2009 CPM Beta Release, but you will have access to Highway and Intersection data, and can run new CPM Evaluations using that data.
