The publisher releases frequent updates to UnForm.  To install an update (i.e. updating from 10.0.08 to 10.0.09), the process is fast and simple: just install the latest version into the current installation location.  This will overwrite the UnForm program files and samples, but will not overwrite any rule files or configuration or data files, and will not change the system ID, which would otherwise require re-licensing.


After downloading the update install file, stop the UnForm server, install the software over the current installation, and start the UnForm server.


Be sure to follow the normal installation flow for your platform, as described in Linux Installation or Windows Installation.  The following is a summary.



You must be super user (root), and must change to the UnForm directory before extracting the tar file. Run 'uf100d stop', extract the tar file 'tar xvf /path/to/tarfile', and start the server with 'uf100d start'.


There is no need to re-run ufsetup.sh or license.sh.



First check if you are running remote desktop services by looking for an entry in Control Panel "Install Application on Remote Desktop Services".  If that entry exists, use it to run the uf100d_setup.exe.  If it does not, then right-click the setup program and Run as Administrator.  Stop the UnForm service, and close the UnForm 10.0 Manager, if open.  Make sure no uf100drun.exe processes are running (note that stopping the service does not stop running print jobs automatically).  Be sure to identify the correct current installation folder, and install the update to that same folder.  The default is C:\SDSI\uf10\server, but that is sometimes changed to place UnForm on a different disk.


There is no need to re-activate.


Client Updates

The UnForm client is rarely updated, and if it is modified there will be a mention of that in the release notes.  If the client is updated, you do not need to update the client included with the UnForm server.  It gets updated automatically by the server install.  However, if you have a client installed on a remote system, that can be updated in similar fashion, by running the client installer to the same install location.


Please note, this procedure is NOT for upgrading the main version you are running, such as from 9.0 to 10.0.  That requires a new installation rather than an in-place update.
