Updating an Existing NoiseTools Installation

Single-user installations

For single-user installations (where a single installation of NoiseTools is used to access a database or databases), the program can be updated using either the DVD, downloaded from the Cirrus website (www.cirrusresearch.co.uk/library/software) or by using the program update feature within NoiseTools itself.

The installer will run and will update any existing databases. 

When the installation is complete, run the NoiseTools program.

Multi-user installations

For installation where more than one instance of NoiseTools is used to access a database or where a database is shared across a network for example, all installations of the NoiseTools program must be updated at the same time.

When the first installation of NoiseTools is updated, all of the current databases will be converted to the new format. 

The new database files are not compatible with the previous versions of NoiseTools. Ensure that all installations of NoiseTools are upgraded at the same time.

For more detailed information about installing or upgrading NoiseTools on a networked system or where the databases are shared between multiple PC’s, please refer to the document Advanced Installation of NoiseTools.
