Can I have that too?

Written by Marcel Thijssen on . Posted in Exact Globe

Do you already have the new overview? Are you already working with the new function? This blog regularly writes about new product updates including a lot of new functions and improvements. But how do you get your hands on them?

If you’re working with Exact Globe Next, then you can run an update to make sure you have the latest product update. However, before updating, it is important to know what kind of installation will be performed.

Two installations are possible within Exact Globe Next:

  1. Exact Globe Next is installed within a network environment, from which a workstation installation has been executed on the workstations.
  2. Exact Globe Next has been installed on a stand-alone PC.

The difference between these installations is easy to view by the presence of the update button. If Exact Globe Next has been installed within a network environment, you won’t see any update button on the workstation within Exact Globe Next. If you have an installation on a stand-alone PC, you will have the update button.

How do I update?
First, you need to determine whether you’re working with a stand-alone installation or a network installation.

You are working with a network installation (there is no update button in the menu bar):

  • Make a back up of your companies.
  • Consult the release notes and system requirements for the product update you wish to update to.
  • Go to the directory on the server where the network installation of Exact Globe Next has been installed.
  • Start the file NETUPDATE.EXE by double-clicking it.
  • In the Update screen, select the product update you wish to upgrade to under ‘Release’.
    Is your desired product update not on the list? Click . By clicking this button, the Updater will check which versions can be downloaded. In order to collect the versions, you need to make sure the user name, password and domain have been filled in.
  • Under ‘Install mode’, select the option ‘Internet network installation update’.
  • Under the fields ‘User name’ and ‘Password’, fill in the username and password you use to log into the customer portal.
  • For a description of all fields in this screen, you can read the extensive explanation in this document.
  • Click OK.

As soon as the update is ready on the server, you can start Exact Globe Next on all workstations. Upon starting Exact Globe Next on the workstations, all workstations will be automatically upgraded to the new product update.

  • Start Exact Globe Next.
  • Click the button ‘Update’ in the upper part of the screen.
