How To Upgrade
#1
I used to know this quite well, but as I have not updated in over 18 months, I've completely forgotten. I've looked at the FAQ and could not find any hints.

After downloading the latest beta, I stop my service, backup the CQC folder in programs(x868)->CQC and then copy the latest version into the same location and restart the service choosing upgrade.

Did I forget anything?

THe installer has a backer upper itself now, so you don't have to do it like that now. The scheme would be:

0. Downlaod the installer and unzip it somewhere.
1. Stop any client machines (including the service any GUI programs)
2. Run the installer on the master server. It'll stop the service for you and let it do a backup for you.
3. Make sure it's basically happy
4. Then run the installer on the various client machines which will start them back up. If you are running background services on those machines you might want to let it do a backup for you there as well.
