    QUESTION:

    How do I upgrade to Track-It! version 11.4 SP1 R2?


    ANSWER:

    Notes:

       
    • In order to upgrade to Track-It! 11.4 SP1 R2, you must be running Track-It! 11.4, 11.4 HF1, 11.4 HF2 or 11.4 HF3 or 11.4 SP1 R1
    •  
    • Please ensure that all technicians have closed Track-It! before running the 11.4 SP1 R2 installer. During installation several Track-It! services will be stopped.
    •  
    • It is HIGHLY recommended that the installer NOT be run through session based Remote Control tools such as Terminal Services and Remote Desktop. Running any installer in this manner may not properly register the necessary DLLs and may fail to enter needed registry entries on the server, which will generate errors when either Track-It! is run, or when attempting to perform certain functions in the application after the update has been applied.
    •  
    • Please run the installer from the Desktop of the Track-It! server. If the update installer is run from within the Track-It! folders themselves, it will see itself in use and will not allow the installation to proceed.
    •  
    • After installing the update, the Technician Client machines will see that a newer version is available and will install the new version automatically.
    •  
    • Use of local email client such as Outlook is no longer supported in Track-It! SP1 R1. Please see article 000111463 for more information.
