- In order to upgrade to Track-It! 11.4, you must be running Track-It! 11.0 (126.96.36.1990), 11.1 (188.8.131.527), 11.2 (184.108.40.2065), or 11.3 (220.127.116.115).
Important!If the Track-It! Web components are installed on a server other than where Track-It! is installed, and you are upgrading from Track-It! 11.2 or earlier, the following steps should be taken prior to installing the Track-It! 11.4 update:
- Please ensure that all technicians have closed Track-It! before running the update installer. During installation several Track-It! services will be stopped, which may cause errors to appear within the application after the installation completes.
- 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. For more information on installing an update through a session based remote control session, such as Remote Desktop, please see Track-It! updates and Remote Desktop or other session based remote control products
- 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.
- Upgrade process will rebuild search indexes so you may unable to use search functionality till the search index process get completed. Time to complete the search indexes is depends on the size of Track-It! database.
- On the Track-It! server open the following directory (default path is shown):
C:\Program Files\BMC Software\Track-It!\Track-It! Server
C:\Program Files\Numara Software\Numara Track-It!\Track-It! Server
- Under the Track-It! Server folder location create a folder named OldPasswordResetSettings.
