Downloading a specific revision of a programme

You use the Download page to download a specific revision of a programme, and optionally a specific revision of a baseline, to your computer. You may want to do this to view a programme in detail and to compare it against a baseline without having to check it out. You normally use Powerproject to download programmes, but you can also download programmes using the Powerproject Vision website, as described below.

To access the Download page from the Powerproject Vision Home page, click Projects, click the name of the project whose programme you want to download, then click Download on the tab corresponding to the programme.

If you want to make changes to a programme, do not download it; check it out instead.

Downloading a programme differs from checking out a programme as follows:

Downloading Checking out
Other users are able to check out the programme and make changes to it. Other users are unable to check out the programme until you have checked it in.
You cannot upload any changes that you make to the programme. Any changes that you make to the programme are uploaded when you check in the programme.

To download a specific revision of a programme:

  1. From the Powerproject Vision Home page, click Projects. The Projects page appears.
  2. Click the name of the project whose programme you want to download. The Project page appears.
  3. Click the tab that corresponds to the programme you want to download.
  4. Click Download. The Download page appears.
  5. Select the revision of the programme that you want to download in the Revision field. Details of the revision are displayed in the Revision created by and Revision description fields.
  6. If you want to download a specific revision of a baseline, select the revision of the baseline that you want to download in the Baseline revision field.
  7. Click Download. If you are downloading the programme only, the programme's PP file is downloaded to your computer; if you are downloading the programme and a baseline, a zip file containing both programme and baseline are downloaded to your computer, with the baseline appearing as an imported baseline in the programme.
