Procedure to Update Visual-Guard

  1. Backup the Database: Start by creating a backup of your database. This is a crucial step to ensure that you have a recovery point in case anything goes wrong during the update process.
  2. Uninstall the Current Version of Visual-Guard: Before installing the new version, it’s important to uninstall the current version of Visual-Guard from your system. This ensures a clean installation of the new version and prevents potential conflicts.
  3. Install the Minor Version of Visual-Guard: Download and install the minor version of Visual-Guard in your development environment. It’s always safer to test the new version in a development environment before deploying it to production.
  4. Open the Repository via VGWinconsole: After the installation, open the VGWinconsole, which is a part of Visual-Guard and allows you to manage your security system. Use it to open the repository that you want to update.
  5. Enter the Migration Code: When opening the repository with the new version of Visual-Guard, you will be asked for a migration code. This code is required to migrate your repository to the new version. The default migration code is ‘0000’.
  6. Update Visual-Guard Components: Once the repository is open, you can start updating all the Visual-Guard components. This includes the VGWebConsole, VGServer, and VGIdentityServer. Follow the instructions provided by Visual-Guard for each component to ensure a smooth update process.
  7. Update Visual-Guard Assemblies: After updating the components, proceed to update the Visual-Guard assemblies. These are the building blocks of .NET applications, and updating them ensures that your application can leverage the latest features and security updates provided by Visual-Guard.

Remember to thoroughly test the updated system in the development environment before deploying it to the production environment. This will help you identify and fix any potential issues before they can affect your production environment.
