Updating SI 2018

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 2018 is available, you will get the following notification when you open an SI 2018 Client:

Prior to updating your SI 2018 Server we highly recommend that you do the following: 


  • Check in all of your Projects from each SI 2018 Client



In fact, while updating the SI 2018 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 2018 Clients until you update your SI 2018 Server. Once the SI Server is updated, you can then proceed to update your SI 2018 Client machines.


Keep in mind, that once you update your SI 2018 Server, all other users will need to apply the SI 2018 Update to their Client machines in order to connect to the SI 2018 Server, i.e. - updating should be a coordinated event within your company.
