DVBLink Server 6.0.0. - correct Build upgrade procedure ??

Postby MiRo » Sun Aug 13, 2017 7:57 pm

Hello,

may I ask for advice how to correctly and seamlesslly upgrade DVBLink Server 6.0.0. Build 13310 to Build 14499 ??

As described at http://dvblogic.com/wiki/index.php/How_ ... age_Center
it should be possible from DVBLink Package center, but it´s not possible for DVBlink server, but only for other componenents/packages.

Only option was to uninstall DVBLink server with Windows add/remove software option (I made a backup of server setting before uninstall).

After clean install of Build 14499 I can´t register DVBLink TV Source and IPTV - error message :product already registered

and restore of server configuration is not possible due to unregistered TV Source and IPTV.

So I get completelly stucked.

You should have done the new server install without removing the old one :!:
Now multiple things go wrong with your install and restore it seems...

Please create a ticket, they will help you out faster then waiting on the forum for an answer.

I tried and wished in easy reinstallation without need to remove old version of DVBLink Server, but it was not possible.

There was no update option in DVBLink Package Center and I could only download latest version of DVBlink server and start installation. Then Windows error message appeared and instructed me to uninstall old version and then install new one.

To be honest upgrade from DVBLink Server 6.0.0. Build 13310 to Build 14499 is pretty confusing.

DVBLink Server updates for Windows are never done through the package center, but are always done on the server PC by running the file "dvblink_server_update.bat", which is included in the installation package. I guess you have selected the "dvblink_server.msi" instead of the batch file for your installation of the update.

Next time reboot your PC when you get the error message and abort installation.
A clean boot is always best, for updating your DVBLink server install.

For less experienced users and in order to avoid confusion it would be usefull to add your comment " Upgrade by running the file dvblink_server_update.bat " to the end of attached DVBLink information screen.
