Run the 8.3 update on the computer where you have AuditWizard installed and follow the prompts. Once the update is completed, if you are upgrading from 8.1.6 or earlier, you must rebuild and re-deploy the Scanner and Agent (if you are using it) as they have been updated.


  • You must be using AuditWizard v8.1.0 or higher to upgrade using the update executable patch. If you are running an earlier version of AuditWizard please contact your local Layton Technology office to obtain the necessary upgrade instructions from earlier versions.
  • Do not uninstall AuditWizard prior to upgrading.
  • To download the patch, you can log into the customer support area on our website.

New & Enhanced Features

  • Enh 60: Report Titles: When exporting to Excel, the name of the report is now suggested as the filename and the worksheet name in the Excel file is named after the report name.
  • Enh 147: Publisher Edit/Delete: New contextual-menu options to delete a publisher or edit its name.
  • Enh 418: Export Dashboard Drilldown Data to XLS: After drilling down through graphs to a grid view, you can now export that data to Excel. Previously, a report would have to be created to achieve this.
