You must be using ServiceDesk 6.2.0 or later before you can update to the latest version. If you are using an earlier version please update by downloading v6.2.0 from the Update ➤ Layton ServiceDesk menu in the Client Support Portal before attempting to update to the latest version.

[edit] .NET 4 Requirement

6.7.0.2 introduced the need for .NET 4. If you are currently running a version prior to 6.7.0.2, it will need to be installed. Instructions are given below.

We recommend that you create a Test Installation and update it before committing to updating your live system.

The full installer is the currently available trial version, which can be downloaded from here. Please log in to the Client Support Portal to obtain your license details to register the application after installation.

[edit] Updating from a Version Earlier than 6.7.0.2
