Version 8 of Meeting Manager requires major updates to the database files. Once upgraded you will not be able to use any new Meeting Manager data with older versions. Therefore, it is strongly recommended you backup your existing data before installing.
For enterprise editions, you can examine the SQL scripts for your database server to determine which modifications to make. In the program folder you will find a script for the recent updates to MySQL and MS SQL.
The steps to upgrade your non-Enterprise data are outlined below. However, the updates cannot be performed if anyone else is using the program. Before running this version, ensure no one else is running the application on your network.
Steps to upgrade data from older version (version 7 and below) to version 8
1) download the DB conversion software from
2) unzip this file into your old data folder. For Meeting Manager Standard the data is stored by default in the user Application Data\CyberMatrix\Meeting Manager folder. E.g. C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Application Data\CyberMatrix\Meeting Manager.
3) run DBISAM2EDB.exe (for multi-user installs you should run this file from one of the client machines so a network database path is stored instead of a local path)
4) click the Upgrade Database button.
5) when the update is finished close down the conversion software.
6) install the software.
Alternatively you could just start over fresh and export any old data you want to keep in CSV format. Then upgrade to v8 and import the CSV files into v8.
Upgrading to a newer version of Meeting Manager V8
The easiest way to upgrade Meeting Manager and continue using your old data is to simply install over the old version. Be sure to backup your data first as a precaution. If you want to use your old data in a new folder, you have two options. Either copy over your entire old data folder to the new folder and then point the software to use this new folder or install the data in a new folder and then copy over the database files.

We purchased your program almost 15 years ago and I use it daily and I love the software. In 15 years I have never doubled booked an event.

I downloaded your Meeting Manager program on Saturday and am so impressed with it!! I do all the scheduling for a large church and have used several scheduling programs over the past 16 years, Yours is by far the best program I have used & by far the most inexpensive...

Thanks for all the support. I have just started training my staff on how to use the system and they love it. It is quick and very user friendly. The security features work out great since we have a number of staff that need to look at the screen but aren't trained to book.

After reviewing several dozen room scheduling and even managing software applications, we narrowed this list to six vendors that drastically ranged in price. After the first demo to our constituents, the selection was down to two with one having the unanimous vote - CyberMatrix´s Meeting Manager...
