Update PlanningPME easily

by cdeschamps October 27, 2009

To update your version of your planning software PlanningPME, you first need to download the update file from our website. You will receive an email with a link to download our resource scheduling software PlanningPME each time a new version is launched.

Then, you need to know how the installation of PlanningPME was done:

- 1st case: PlanningPME is installed on each computer: The update file will then need to be executed on each PC. This solution can be a good solution as it will speed your connection to the planning if the server is not local. But it also means that it can take a long time to update all PC's depending on your number of licences. So, if you have a local server, better is to have the software installed only on the server.

- 2nd case: PlanningPME is installed on the server and you create a shortcut of the exe file on each client machine: the update file needs to be executed only once on the server.

So, we highly recommend the 2nd installation.

If ever you need to have the software installed on your local computer to speed up the connection to the planning, then, to update your version in an optimal way, here is our suggestion: You can create a script that, when opening PlanningPME,  copy all the files in the folder "PlanningPME" (Exe file + dll) from a shared folder where you will copy the last version  of PlanningPME to the local machine C -> Program Files -> Target Skills -> PlanningPME.

Then, you are sure that each user will have the last version of PlanningPME installed locally on his machine.

DO NOT FORGET TO MAKE UP A BACK UP OF YOUR DATABASE BEFORE UPDATING YOUR VERSION.

If ever you need to do a migration of the database, make sure that all users are disconnected to the database.
