Test Installation

It is highly recommended that you implement a Test Installation and upgrade it before committing the new version to your live system. Failing this, if your server is virtual, snapshot it before upgrading so that you can roll back if necessary.


Do not uninstall AuditWizard prior to upgrading. This is an update, not a full installer.

If you have a Multiple User installation, update the server first, then the clients.

  1. In AuditWizard, ensure that Database Purging is disabled.
  2. Back up your database
