Updating SI

Details

 

Note: The instructions below describe both a Server and Client update. Not all releases will require both a Server and Client update, some are just Client updates.

 

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

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

 

  • Check in all of your Projects from each SI Client

 

 

In fact, while updating the SI you will be prompted to confirm that you have done the steps above.

 

Not every software release will have both a Client and a Server update but for those that do you will not be able to update any SI Clients until you update your SI Server. Once the SI Server is updated, you can then proceed to update your SI Client machines.

 

Keep in mind, that once you update your SI Server, all other users will need to apply the SI Update to their Client machines in order to connect to the SI Server, i.e. - updating should be a coordinated event within your company.

SI Server Updates

 

To check for updates on your SI Server, click Start->All Apps->D-Tools SIX->Check for SI Server Updates:

 

 

If an update is found you will be prompted to download and install the update.

Follow all onscreen instructions.

SI Client Updates

 

Once your SI Server is updated, you can then update each of your SI Clients. If you are opening SI for the first that day, you will be prompted via automatic updates.

If updates are found you will see a screen similar to the one below:
