We have encountered a bug locally that is triggered when Juris-M 5.0 is installed over an existing Zotero installation.
The bug raises an error complaining about failure to find a database
zlsPreferences. Juris-M attempts to copy, then modify an
existing database. If the database it finds happens to be from Zotero,
this table does not exist, hence the error.
I am on the road until the 25th, and won’t be able to fix this bug until after I return to Nagoya. Meanwhile, though, you should be able to work around the error by following steps like these (essentially, the idea is to prevent Juris-M from finding the previous Zotero database, so that it will install an empty one that can be populated via sync):
- Stop Juris-M, Zotero, and (just in case) Firefox.
- Use Finder (on the Mac), Cortana/Search (on Windows),
(on Linux) to locate the filezotero.sqlite`
- Rename the folder containing
zotero.sqliteto something else (ie. rename
- If you also find a
jurism.sqlitefile on the system, rename it to (for example)
- Install Juris-M 5.0 (you should not get an error this time).
- Set up sync
That should pull in all of the content. Check that the attachments have also come through.
Hope this works well!
