Upgrading ACL Analytics (subscription license)

The following procedure outlines the steps for upgrading ACL Analytics from version 10.0.2, 10.0.1, or 10.0 to 10.5.1 if you have a subscription license. To upgrade ACL Analytics if you have a perpetual license and a serial number, see Upgrading ACL Analytics (perpetual license).

If you have version 10.5.0 of ACL Analytics installed, see Upgrading ACL Analytics (minor upgrade). 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.


The subscription license option is available for the English Unicode edition of ACL Analytics only.

To upgrade ACL Analytics (subscription license):

  1. Close all other Windows applications.
  2. Double-click the ACL Analytics installation package: ACLAnalytics105_Desktop_Unicode.exe

    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. Leave English selected as the setup language 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_Unicode).

    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. If you are prompted to install prerequisites, click Install. After the prerequisites are installed, the ACL Analytics installer automatically proceeds.
  8. Click Yes in the dialog box confirming the upgrade.
  9. In the Welcome page, click Next.
  10. In the License Agreement page, select I accept the terms in the license agreement and click Next.
  11. In the Destination Folder page, specify the locations where the ACL Analytics application files and the ACL Analytics sample data files will be installed. If necessary, click Change to modify either, or both, of the default locations and then click Next.

    The location where you install the sample data files becomes the default ACL Analytics working directory.

  12. In the Ready to Install the Program page, click Install.
  13. When the upgrade process is complete, click Finish.
