4.6 to 5.1 upgrade path (I am lost)

Postby pontiff » Wed Dec 10, 2014 4:32 am

Hi all,

Quick question... as a long time user of DVBlink I try not to upgrade all that often as if it isn't broke, don't fix it. So I have versions 4.6 of both TV Source and Connect! server. I finally decided that I want to pay for connect server so I bought the license for 26 euro. My thinking was that since I have bought 5.1, it would activate versions previous to that, but have since found that isn't the case. Okay so thats not a problem, I will just upgrade to 5.1. So I have now upgraded the server to 5.1 which now means that I need to upgrade my TVSource license from 4.6 to 5.1. I have tried the upgrade option from the licenseing portal but it does not seem to actually add anything to the basket. Will I have to buy the full 26 euro license again?

I really need to just set it up to start with and leave it, as this is the 2nd time i have had to buy new licenses (previously was 3.x to 4.x) because of a re-install and lack of ability to activate old licenses.

First of all before install dvblink server V5.1 , do a backup (if it is needed ) and completely uninstall dvblink server V4.6
Than go to license portal
-> tab Actions
-> Upgrade to version 5.x
-> Select check box (opposite System id:)
-> Continue
