Upgrading Easify

Upgrading Easify

This guide shows you how to upgrade your Easify software.

From time to time we release upgrades to Easify, you can download and install these upgrades to enable new features in Easify and to install updates and bug fixes.

To upgrade Easify you will need to obtain a copy of the Easify Installer which you can download here.

Before you begin your update, we strongly recommend that you run Windows Update and install all critical updates and service packs.

we also recommend that you temporarily disable your anti-virus software during the upgrade process to prevent it interfering with Easify Setup.

The easiest place to save your Easify download to is your desktop...

Double click the Setup shortcut to start Easify Setup.

Depending on the operating system that you are installing on (in this help guide we are using Windows 10), you may be prompted by Windows User Account Control to confirm that you want to run Easify Setup.

Click the Yes button to authorise Easify Setup to run.

After a short while, Easify Setup will display the following window...

Easify Setup will then carry out some checks on your system to make sure that Easify can be successfully installed.

It is possible that Easify Setup will need to install the correct version of the Microsoft .Net Framework if it is not already installed. If the correct version of .Net Framework is not already installed, Easify Setup will install it for you.

Installing the .Net Framework may take some time, so be sure to wait until it has been installed.

When your system has been prepared for Easify Installation you will see the following window.

Click the Next button to continue the upgrade process...

When you have read and agreed to the End User License Agreement, tick the checkbox and click the Next button to continue...

Easify Setup will then check your computer for any existing Easify installations.

After a short while, Easify Setup will have detected any existing installations of Easify and you will be shown the next page of the Setup Wizard...

Because we want to upgrade our existing installation, select Upgrade.

Click the Next button to continue.

Easify Setup will show you a list of the Easify applications that are present on your computer that can be upgraded.

This is a typical view of a computer that has one Easify Server installed on it, and one Easify Pro Client. In this case the existing version of Easify is Version 4.9. And in this demonstration we will be upgrading to Easify Version 4.12.

Typically you will tick all of the Easify applications listed here (the Server and the Client), however if you have an advanced installation consisting of multiple Easify Servers or multiple Easify clients on the same computer, you will need to select only the Easify applications that you want to upgrade.

As previously mentioned, for most instances you will want to select everything shown here.

Click the Next button to continue.

The Easify applications that you previously selected will now be updated.

When the upgrade is complete you will see the final page of the wizard.
