Switching Between DITA-FMx 1.1 and 2.0

Don’t want to completely switch to DITA-FMx 2.0 yet? You can safely install FMx 2.0 along side of FMx 1.1 and switch back and forth.

DITA-FMx 2.0 installs into a DITA-FMx-2 folder in the main FrameMaker program folder. Because of this, your DITA-FMx 1.1 installation will be left untouched after installing DITA-FMx 2.0.

After running the installer, your maker.ini file will have been updated to point to the new DITA-FMx 2.0 DLLs. If you’d like to be able to switch between both DITA-FMx versions, just edit the maker.ini file as shown below.

; FMx 1.1
;ditafmx=Standard, ditafmx, DITA-FMx\ditafmx_110.dll, structured
;ditafmx_app=Standard, ditafmx_app, DITA-FMx\ditafmx_110_app.dll, structured

; FMx 2.0
ditafmx=Standard, ditafmx, DITA-FMx-2\ditafmx_110.dll, structured
ditafmx_app=Standard, ditafmx_app, DITA-FMx-2\ditafmx_110_app.dll, structured

The example shown will enable DITA-FMx 2.0. To switch to DITA-FMx 1.1, just add semicolons in from of the two “2.0” entries and remove the semicolons in from of the “1.1” entries, then restart FrameMaker.
