Upgrading BI Validator is simple and easy, as no major pre-upgrade preparation is required. If you are using a PostgreSQL database as respository, just back up the files to the <Install_Directory>\app\Datagaps\Repository\pgsql\data folder. For complete instructions, see Backup and Restore.

When you are ready to upgrade the BI Validator application, remove the existing setup by uninstalling the BI Validator application from Windows' Add or Remove Programs feature. Follow the instructions prompted while the installer completely uninstalls BI Validator. During the upgrade process, the BI Validator repository database is not effected, leaving all your data as is.

After the BI Validator Desktop Edition is uninstalled, download the latest version and run the installer to finish the installation successfully. For instructions on installing Desktop Edition, see here

Upgrading Multi-User Edition
