    Steps to use?

    Hi Tim,

    Great to see this project, can I just check the steps to make a migration?

    I think:

    1. Duplicate DB
    2. On the website Umbraco, remove Contour v3
    3. On the website Umbraco, install Umbraco Forms v4
    4. Install Umbraco Froms Migration Tool
    5. Connect migration tool to duplicated database
    6. Delete duplciate DB
    7. Job done

    Yeah idea with this tool is to migrate forms from an existing Contour installation to a fresh Forms installation.

    If you already have Contour installed you'll have to remove it (including the db tables) but the steps you describe should do the trick

    I would say copy the db, then remove the UF* table and install Forms, then use the migration tool and point it at the copy still containing the UF tables

    Hi Jeavon,

    we're going through the same process I need to umbraco our contour installation to forms due to a bug fix.

    I've followed your steps, but when we point the migration tool to the old db installation I get the following:
