Client/Server Upgrade Instructions from v13, v14, v15, or v16 to Atrex 17

  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 17 Database Server on the server computer.
     
  4. On the first system, install Atrex 17 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 17 registration key under Options – Enter Registration Information.
     
  7. Install Atrex 17 on the remaining systems.
     
  8. Finally, in Atrex 13 and older the email setup was entered on each workstation.  This is no longer the case in Atrex 17.  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.
