CTI highly recommends users migrate to SonarWiz 7.04.0001 soon, which offers significant new features and performance improvements. To test SW7 with existing SW6 projects, make a new project folder COPY first, then open the COPY with SW7. Project will promote to the new SW7 project format, and will not be backward compatible with SW6.
