Updating SI 2016

When a new release of SI 2016 is available, you will get the following notification when you open an SI 2016 Client:

Prior to updating your SI 2016 Server we highly recommend that you do the following: 


  • Check in all of your Projects from each SI 2016 Client



In fact, while updating the SI 2016 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 2016 Clients until you update your SI 2016 Server. Once the SI Server is updated, you can then proceed to update your SI 2016 Client machines.


Keep in mind, that once you update your SI 2016 Server, all other users will need to apply the SI 2016 Update to their Client machines in order to connect to the SI 2016 Server, i.e. - updating should be a coordinated event within your company.
