Canfield Imaging Systems: Backup VISIA SQL Database And Upgrade VISIA 4.2 To VISIA 5.0

One of my clients uses VISIA medical imaging software from Canfield Imaging Systems for various forms of medical research projects. They have had the VISIA software and imaging station for a year or more and recently needed to upgrade the software to take advantage of some new features available in VISIA 5.0. The client’s VISIA installation was at VISIA 4.2 so it required a major update to get to VISIA version 5.0. Upgrading the software is fairly easy but it is important to make sure you have current backups before the upgrade begins. Follow the directions below to first backup your the Microsoft SQL Server, backup the VISIA files, and then proceed with upgrading VISIA 4.2 to VISIA 5.0.

iPhone on Windows XP SP3, The Computer Cannot Detect the Scanner or Camera

Recently I was working to organize a bunch of images on my iPhone including figuring out the best way to add and manage Photo Albums. Needless to say I was connecting and disconnecting the iPhone from a Windows XP laptop over and over again. At some point in the process Windows started popping up an error when I was attempting to view the images via the Scanner and Camera wizard. At first the issue was just the fact that it was taking forever to load all of the images but eventually the below error stopped me from viewing any images.
