Version 7.1.0 was released in January 2021 and has been succeeded by newer versions.
Before installing this version, your Tricerat Licensing Server must be upgraded to v5.3.1 or later! The upgrade to v5.3.1 Tricerat Licensing Server needs to be completed before upgrading any server session agent to avoid license checkout issues! See this page for upgrade instructions: Upgrading Your License Server The latest version is v5.3.1.
Version 7 products are not compatible with version 6 activation codes. You will need new activation codes for version 7 products. Please contact your Salesperson for more information.
Before installing this version, you must install the .Net 4.8 Runtime. Failure to do so will prevent license activation of a nodelocked license and all UI will fail to run as it is dependent on this version of .Net.
There are several items to keep in mind for those upgrading from v6:
If you need to stage your upgrade into smaller steps the first step will be to upgrade your Print Server agents first. v7 Session Agents cannot communicate over non-TLS connections to the older Print Server agent. If you are using v6 Proxy agents they should be upgraded to the v7 Connector next. After that you may upgrade your DB and Session Agents to v7 as you can.
To upgrade your DB you will need to run once (and only once) the new ScrewDriversDatabase installer. This will handle updating the DB schema to support the new features. Note: This will also introduce the new authorization data into the database. The new ScrewDrivers Administration settings application by default can only be run by Domain Admins and Local Admins from the machine where the ScrewDriversDatabase installer was run as well as the user who ran the installer. Any additional users will need to be added from within the Administration application.
ScrewDrivers and Scanning clients are both forward and backward compatible between v6 and v7 servers however this is with current settings only. The backing registry locations for settings have been moved and a v6 client that downloads a v7 plugin via auto client update cannot place settings where the v7 plugin expects them and vice versa. To get full functionality you will need to upgrade clients to v7.
