Upgrading ACL Network using the setup wizard (major upgrade)

Note

You must have administrator rights on the computer on which you are upgrading ACL Network.

The following procedure outlines the steps for upgrading ACL Network from version 10.0, 10.0.1, or 10.0.2 to 10.5.1.

If you have version 10.5.0 of ACL Network installed, see Upgrading ACL Network using the setup wizard (minor upgrade). If you do not have a previous version of ACL Network installed, or if you have ACL Network 9.3 or earlier installed, see Installing ACL Network and ACL Workstation.

To upgrade ACL Network (major upgrade):

  1. Close all other Windows applications.
  2. Double-click ACLAnalytics105_Network_<edition>.exe

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

    Note

    You cannot use the ACL Network 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 Network 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_Network_<edition>).

    On computers running 64-bit operating systems the default program folder used by ACL Network 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 Network installer automatically proceeds.
  8. Click Yes in the dialog box confirming the upgrade.

    A notification in the dialog box states that an earlier version of ACL has been detected and will be uninstalled.

  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 Custom Setup page, do the following:
    1. Ensure that the ACL Analytics 10 entry does not have a red X beside it, indicating This feature will not be available. If necessary, click the drop-down arrow beside the entry and select This feature will be installed on local hard drive.
    2. If you need to change the default folder where ACL Network will be installed, click Change and select the appropriate folder. The default installation folder is C:\ACL Software\ACL Analytics 10.
  12. (Optional) If you want to install ACL Workstation on the same computer as ACL Network, do the following:
    1. Click the drop-down arrow beside the ACL Workstation entry and select This feature will be installed on local hard drive.
    2. If you need to change the default sample data files folder, click Change and select the appropriate folder. The default sample data files folder is C:\ACL DATA\Sample Data Files.
      Note

      The sample data files folder is also the default ACL working directory.

    If you choose to install ACL Workstation on the same computer as ACL Network, the ACL Workstation shortcut is created on the desktop of the computer. ACL Workstation will not function on this machine if you have also created the security directory on the same machine.

    ACL Workstation can also be installed using the separate ACL Workstation setup wizard, or the silent installation procedure. For more information about ACL Workstation, see Overview.

  13. Click Next.
  14. In the Ready to Install the Program page, click Install.
  15. When the upgrade process is complete, click Finish.

    The ACL Network application executable (ACLWin.exe) is installed to C:\ACL Software\ACL Analytics 10, or whatever installation folder you specified. If you chose to also install ACL Workstation on the same computer, the ACL Workstation shortcut appears on the desktop of the computer.

    The installation folder includes the WS subfolder, which contains the ACL Workstation setup file. You can use this setup file to upgrade or install ACL Workstation on the computer of any user who wants to run ACL Network.
