Upgrading Easify

This tutorial video discusses how to carry out an upgrade to Easify V3.



From time to time we release free upgrades and service packs for Easify, this guide explains how to upgrade your Easify installation to the latest version.

Easify consists of two main components, the database that is used to store all of your data such as customer records, products etc... And the actual Easify program that to run and use to access that data. When referring to the two components of Easify, we refer to the database as 'the database' or sometimes the 'Easify server' and the Easify program that you interact with is known as 'the Client'.

We strongly recommend that you run Windows Update and install all critical updates and service packs before updating Easify.

We strongly recommend that you temporarily disable anti-virus software during the update process, and that you reboot your computer prior to updating Easify.

You can download the latest version of Easify here.


Launch the Installation Wizard by running Setup.exe. (The installation wizard is used to both install and upgrade Easify).

Note: You must run the Easify Installer (Setup.exe) from your computer and not by running it from our website. When you download the Easify Installer and are asked what to do by your web browser, select to save it to your computer, and do not select the option to run it. Once it has finished downloading run Setup.exe from the location it was saved in.



When you launch Setup.exe, the Easify installer will carry out a few checks on your system to ensure that certain pre-requisites have been met (such as the .Net framework being installed). 




Once the pre-requisites have been checked you will be greeted with the installer welcome screen. Click Next to continue.




Please read the Easify End User License Agreement (EULA) and if you agree to its terms, tick the box to accept the license agreement.



Click Next when you are ready to move on.


Easify setup will now check your computer for any previously installed versions of Easify.




The Easify installer will detect that you already have an Easify installation that can be upgraded, Click the Yes button to choose to update Easify.




If your Easify database needs to be upgraded you will be warned of this and asked whether you want to continue and upgrade the database to the latest version.



Note: The database upgrade can be carried out from any computer on your network, you do not have to run the upgrade on the physical computer on which the database resides. 

Click OK to start the database upgrade process.

The database upgrade can take from 5 to 20 minutes depending on the size of your database, the speed of your server and how out of date your database version is.


When the database has been upgraded you can then proceed to upgrade the client software.



You can either accept the default destination folder for the client installation (recommended), or specify an alternative destination.

Click Next when ready.




When the upgrade is complete you can click the Finished button to exit the installation.
