Upgrading ACL Analytics (minor upgrade)

The following procedure outlines the steps for performing a minor upgrade of ACL Analytics from version 10.5.0 to 10.5.1. You can perform a minor upgrade with either the perpetual license or the subscription license model.

If you do not have a previous version of ACL Analytics installed, or if you have ACL Desktop 9.3 or earlier installed, see Installing ACL Analytics.

To upgrade ACL Analytics (minor upgrade):

  1. Close all other Windows applications.
  2. Double-click the ACL Analytics installation package: ACLAnalytics105_Desktop_<edition>.exe

    The <edition> identifier indicates whether the executable file contains the non-Unicode or Unicode edition of ACL Analytics. Ensure that the edition you download and install is the correct edition for your organization.


    You cannot use the ACL Analytics installer to upgrade non-Unicode ACL to Unicode ACL, or vice versa. To change editions of ACL at the same time as you upgrade versions requires that you first uninstall the existing installation of ACL, and then perform a fresh installation of the new version.

  3. If a security warning dialog box is displayed, verify the information listed, and click Run.
  4. Select the language you want to use for your installation of ACL Analytics and click OK.
  5. In the Setup Extraction Location page, specify the folder where the installation files will be extracted, and click Extract.

    You can click Browse to select a folder, or accept the default location (C:\Program Files\ACL Software\Installers\ACLAnalytics105_Desktop_<edition>).

    On computers running 64-bit operating systems the default program folder used by ACL Analytics is C:\Program Files (x86)\

    The setup files are extracted to the destination folder you specified. After the files are extracted the setup wizard starts automatically. If the setup wizard fails to start automatically for any reason, you can use Windows Explorer to navigate to the folder where the setup files were extracted and double-click setup.exe.

  6. If the Overwrite Protection dialog box appears, click Yes to All.
  7. Click Yes in the dialog box confirming the upgrade.
  8. If you are prompted to install prerequisites, click Install. After the prerequisites are installed, the ACL Analytics installer automatically proceeds.
  9. In the Resuming the Setup Wizard page, click Next.
  10. When the upgrade process is complete, click Finish.
