Upgrade Instructions

From Simplify Suite v5.5.2 and earlier

  1. When you upgrade one server in your farm, the central Simplify Database will also be updated. Therefore you should upgrade all of your servers that use the same database at the same time.

From Simplify Suite v4.x

  1. Before performing an upgrade from Simplify Suite v4, make sure you have a back up of your Simplify Database.
  2. If you haven't done so already, you will need to request a new serial # on our license upgrades page. Simplify Suite v4 Serial #'s will not work with Simplify Suite v5.

New Installation Instructions

For more detailed instructions, please see the Simplify Suite Help PDF, or the Database Setup Help PDF

  1. It is highly recommended that your first install of the Simplify Suite be in a non-production environment, using a non-production SQL database server.
  2. If you do not currently have a database setup, you can download Microsoft SQL Server Express Edition for your test environment here: http://www.microsoft.com/sqlserver/en/us/editions/express.aspx
  3. If you do not have the Microsoft .NET Framework installed, please do so now through the Windows Server Manager console, or by downloading from Microsoft's site: http://www.microsoft.com/net


Once you have installed the product your free 30-day trial will commence. At any time during or after the trial you may enter a product serial number and activation code to remove the trial dialog and begin full use of the software in a production environment.


All triCerat product licenses are sold per server and are also available as concurrent licenses. For more information about licensing, ask your triCerat representative.
