Updating Multi-user Manager or ManagerPlus
should be performed by a qualified system engineer.

There are essentially two steps
to the upgrade. Using the new CD-ROM an administrative
install is first performed, the second step is to
run the workstation installation.

certain Manager or ManagerPlus is present on the machine
you intend to do the upgrade from.

on all workstations.

that has manager installed. If the installation menu
does not automatically appear, you may run setup.exe
from the root directory of the installation CD.

accept the defaults on all screens. The software will
automatically find and update the main application

installation. Please remove and safeguard the installation CD-ROM for future use. You

my computer and locate the drive letter that represents
