During the installation/upgrade of the Core server, any previously installed Add-Ons will be uninstalled. These will have to be manually reinstalled after the upgrade is complete.
If you were using any Server Add-On modules, also download the relevant updated installer and its Installation Guide (only install a Server Add-On if you have a specific need for the features it provides).
Updating the BiblioTECH Server
Copy the setup application(s) to the BiblioTECH Server.
Stop all BiblioTECH Clients (on all computers).
Login into the Server computer using a Microsoft Windows local computer administrative account.
Using the Windows Service Manager, stop ALL BiblioTECH services (stop the BT8_SVRservice second last then the BT8_DBservice last).
Run the Server setup – accept all default responses. During an update, the installer will check for a licence key with ‘current’ support – if not found, the installer will ask for a new key to be entered.
When the server has been updated, the setup utility will start the services in order. As each service is started it will perform 'house-keeping' as required. This can take a few minutes.
When you are presented with the Finish button, the server has been updated – it is advisable to restart the BiblioTECH services. After the restart, the server will perform a full and comprehensive re-index of the data. This can take a few minutes.
If you did have BiblioTECH Server 'Add-On' modules installed, you will need to run the setups for those again now.
Updating a BiblioTECH Client
When a BiblioTECH Client connects to a BiblioTECH Server, it checks to see if there is an update available. If so, it will automatically update itself. Therefore, you do not need to run the update process on a Client.
