9.4. Updating Virtuoso from Versions PRIOR to ver.

Update Virtuoso Software


The main Virtuoso installation is performed to a shared network directory.  Applying an update involves installing the new version of Virtuoso to the *network* Virtuoso folder.  Workstations will then auto-detect that a new version of Virtuoso Workstation is available, and will prompt users to update the Virtuoso Workstation install.

Note for Terminal Servers:  After performing the Virtuoso network update, you must install the Virtuoso Workstation update on your Terminal Servers while logged on as a user with installation permissions.  It is good practice after applying a Virtuoso update (described below) to immediately log on to your Terminal Server(s) and launch Virtuoso and allow the Virtuoso Workstation update to run.
