  Developing and deploying software systems for data acquisition and experiment control in a beamline laboratory can be a very challenging task. In certain cases there is the need to replace and modernize an existing system in order to accommodate substantial beamline upgrades. DonkiOrchestra is a TANGO-based framework for data acquisition and experiment control developed at Elettra Sincrotrone Trieste. The framework is based on an advanced software trigger-driven paradigm developed in-house. DonkiOrchestra is meant to be general and flexible enough to be adapted to the development needs of different laboratories and their data acquisition requirements. This presentation outlines the upgrade of the LabVIEW-based TwinMic beamline control system which hosts a unique soft X-ray transmission and emission microscope. Other than the technical demanding tasks of interfacing and controlling old and new instrumentation with DonkiOrchestra, this presentation discusses the various challenges of upgrading the software in a working synchrotron beamline.
