Convert an Open MI 1.4 component to Open MI 2.0

This section shows how to convert an existing Open MI 1.4 component so it is compliant with Open MI 2.0.

Please note this is only available for converting 1.4 components that do not make use of data operations. If your 1.4 component does use data operations you will have to update the component manually.

 Briefly this involves adding your 1.4 component to a new FluidEarth2 composition, right clicking on it and selecting the Export OMI ... menu item.  You can then specify another .OMI file in which to store your updated, FluidEarth 2.0 component.  This can then be used as a 2.0 component in any composition.

Run the Pipistrelle GUI.

Right click on the workspace and select Add -> Component from the popup menu

Find and open your 1.4 component .OMI file.  Once opened it will appear in the workspace:

Right click on the component to bring up the popup menu associated with a component:

Select the Export OMI ... menu option and save your new OpenMI 2.0 component OMI file. You may now use this component in Pipistrelle 2.0.
