Client/Server Upgrade Instructions from v13, v14, or v15 to Atrex 16

  1. Make 2 separate backups of your data, one to the hard drive and one to some type of removable media.
  2. Close Atrex on all workstations.
  3. Install the Atrex 16 Database Server on the server computer.
  4. On the first system, install Atrex 16 directly over top of your previous Atrex installation.
  5. Start Atrex and when prompted, start the data conversion.   Allow the data conversion to complete before continuing further.
  6. Enter the Atrex 16 registration key under Options – Enter Registration Information.
  7. Install Atrex 16 on the remaining systems.
  8. Finally, in Atrex 13 the email setup was entered on each workstation.  This is no longer the case in Atrex 16.  There’s a global email configuration as well as individual user configurations.  If you were previously using MAPI to send email from inside Atrex, or if you weren’t sending email from inside Atrex, no changes are necessary.  If you were using SMTP to send email from inside Atrex your email configuration must be re-entered.  Enter the global configuration under Options – Company Setup / Customization – Company Information and Settings – Email tab.  Optionally, enter individual user configurations under User – Edit User/Group.
