Problem solutions

We need to reinstall RikiTikiWiki© on our new computer, how do we transfer our current data and program settings from our old computer?

Follow these steps:
  1. Copy the database files from your current install folder (usually c:\Program files\RikiTikiWiki) to a backup folder or removable media (floppy disk, USB drive, etc) :
    • rikitiki.db3 = database

  3. Copy the files from the floppy created in step 1 to the install folder in your new computer.
  4. Download and install the latest update patch from the website.

Does RikiTikiWiki© run on 64-bit Windows 7?


All versions of 64-bit Windows (XP, Vista, 7, 8, 8.1) are able to run 32-bit programs seamlessly through WOW64 which is provided with the operating system and does not have to be explicitly enabled. In other words, it's 100% automatic. (Ref: Microsoft)

According to Microsoft, 32-bit software running under WOW64 has a similar performance when executing under 32-bit Windows. (Ref: Microsoft)


Troubleshooting RikiTikiWiki© error messages

Unable to compact db (VACUUM has no effect in DISQLite3 Personal)

VACUUM defragments your database, decreasing file size and increasing performance. VACUUM should be performed on a routine basis (monthly) to maintain database health. Unfortunately the free version of the DISQLite component does not support the VACUUM functionality. You will need to use a 3rd party tool. I recommend SQLiteStudio© from SalSoft (free).
