Updating SIX

Details

 

When a new release of SIX 2013 is available, you will get the following notification when you open a SIX Client:

 

 

 

Prior to updating your SIX Server we highly recommend that you do the following: 

 

  • Export all custom reports from each SIX Client to the SIX Server via the Export Report feature
  •  
  • Check in all of your Projects from each SIX Client
  •  
  • Backup your SIX Server

 

Not every software release will have both a Client and a Server update but for those that do, you will not be able to work in your SIX Client until the SIX Server is updated as well.

 

Keep in mind, that once you update your SIX Server, all other users will need to apply the SIX Update to their Client machines in order to connect to the SIX Server.

SIX Server Updates

 

To check for updates on your SIX Server, click Start->All Programs->D-Tools SIX->Check for SIX Server Updates.

After installing the update you will be prompted to configure your SIX Server. Here you will use either Express or Custom, depending on what you used when you first configured the SIX Server - most likely you used the Express option:
