Upgrading to a new major version of the software

You are able to upgrade to a new major version if the license you are using is covered by our Maintenance, Upgrades and Support (MUS) program.

To upgrade to a new major version, you will then also need to carry out the following steps:

  • Download an installer file.
  • Run the installer file as an administrative user.
  • Start up the newly installed Workbench as an administrative user.
  • Upgrade your license if it is a static license, or configuring your license connection if you are using a network license.
  • (optional) Install plugins via the Plugins manager, which is launched from the Plugins button on the toolbar.

Please note that in the case of network licenses, your License Server administrator will need to have downloaded and installed a version of the license that supports the major version line of the Workbench you wish to run.

After your Workbench has the appropriate license set up, you can close the Workbench and start it up again as a regular user to run your analyses.
