Although the document below describes updating FusionReactor 6, the process is identical for FusionReactor 7

To start the update, run the appropriate executable as described in setup executables.

The installation starts with displaying the initial Welcome Screen as shown in Figure 1 below.

Figure 1: Welcome screen

Clicking the Next button will proceed with the installation and open the License Agreement screen as shown in Figure 2.

Figure 2: License Agreement

Please carefully review the license agreement, then choose the 'I accept the agreement' option (if you accept the terms and conditions) and click Next to proceed. Press Cancel if you do not accept the license agreement. This will exit the setup wizard. If you have accepted the license agreement the setup wizard will proceed. Click Next to proceed to the FusionReactor already installed screen shown in Figure 3.

Figure 3: Previous Version of FusionReactor Identified

At this stage, the installer will check if a previous installation of FusionReactor exists. In this case, it has identified that a FusionReactor v5.2.7 is installed on this system, which is viable for an upgrade. The installation now changes from this point on to an update. Click Next to proceed to the FusionReactor Update screen shown in Figure 4 

Figure 4: The FRAMD service

The settings of your previous installation of FusionReactor will be retained during the update, so there will be no prompt for a port number and/or administrator password.

Here you can choose if the framd daemon should be started by the install4j Wizard after all files have been installed. If you do not wish to start the daemon at this moment, or wish to manually start it uncheck the option 'Start framd''. Click Next to begin installing FusionReactor or Cancel to exit the install4j Wizard.

Figure 5: Installation Completed

Figure 8: After the installation has finished you are presented with the Installation Completed screen that allows you to decide if you want to configure the instances now or later. To configure now launch the Instance Manager by clicking the button Start configuring instances and follow the Initial Server Scan Guide. Please note that you might have to apply a license key before if this is a new installation.

If you wish to configure your instances later uncheck the option Start configuring instances now which changes the Installation Completed screen to the version shown in Figure 9. Click the button Finish and configure instances later to complete the install4j Wizard and configure instances later.
