When updating Evopos we normally download the update only on one computer, copy the files into the main database, and then prompt the other computers to update next time Evopos starts
•Select Settings from the top menu, then select Update from the left menu. Then confirm the folder to download the update files to. This should normally be the shared folder: \EvoposShared\Install\EvoposDesktop or: \bbscd\Evolve (on earlier installations) that is accessible from all computers. Then select OK. This should download the two update files (EvoposMain.msi and setup.exe) to the selected folder and also store the Files in the actual database so that other workstations can update even if they do not have access to the download folder. Note: You can specify different folders on different computers, but this method ensures you always have the latest version in the shared folder (especially useful if you wish to install Evopos on a new workstation).
•Evopos should then prompt to update that computer. You can select 'Update' to update now, or 'Later' to update at a later time. If you select 'Update' then Evopos should close and the update should start (You will need to accept License details). When complete please re-start Evopos.
•If a screen appears saying the system needs to perform a Data Update, then make sure all other computers are out of the Evopos program before you select to continue. We also recommend taking backup of the system before updating as if there is a problem with a data update, we may need to restore the pre-installation data. After it performs the first part of a Data Update the system will say it is OK to install on other computers while it loops through the reports to check for any new data views etc.
•After one computer has been updated, any other computers will check for a new update when next starting Evopos and prompt to update. You can select 'Update' to update now, or 'Later' to update at a later time. If you select 'Update', then Evopos should close and the update should start (You will need to accept License details). When complete you can re-start Evopos.
You can still use the older method of downloading the latest version from the Portal and running it (or run the 'Update Evopos' shortcut on the desktop).
Note: If you are installing on a new workstation or from a much earlier version you should run Setup.exe rather than EvoposMain.msi, as running EvoposMain.msi will not install dependencies such as the correct version of Crystal Reports
