PalstatCAQ - update


We recommend updating only Palstat CAQ databases, which have a standard structure. If you have added any custom objects (tables, views, procedures, etc.) to your database or connected custom triggers to standard Palstat CAQ objects, we recommend deleting them before the update. Otherwise Palstat company can not guarantee the correctness of the update or keeping your objects in the database. We always recommend that you back up your databases before the update.

PalstatCAQ system components

It is always necessary to update all components used in production. CAQdesktop, CAQservice, CAQweb, CAQapi

Installation
 

  • Make sure the client stations contain .NET 4.7.2
  • Make sure you have access to the Palstat CAQdesktop system as a user with ADMIN privileges.
  • Shut down PALSTAT on all stations - you can force the shutdown by renaming the ".../CAQdesktop/CONFIG/service.lck.bak" file to "service.lck" (remove . bak extension), PALSTAT will not start while the file is present and will be terminated within 60s on stations where it is running, users will be informed by a message with the option to save and terminate the program, the message text can be set in the LCK file], in exceptional cases it is necessary to close open files directly on the shared folder on the server.
  • Rename the APL, DOC, SETUP directories e.g. to APL.OLDx (Downgrading by multiple versions is not supported, older backups of the APL directory can no longer be used!!!!, reverse use is only possible with the corresponding database backups of the whole system.)
  • Upload the new contents of the temporary CAQdesktop folder to your PALSTAT production folder, the APL, DOC and SETUP directories will be created anew.
  • Unblock PALSTAT by adding the BAK file extension to the LCK file again.
  • After uploading the new files, you need to run the main module ".../APL/Launcher.exe" and execute the upgrade if prompted, only PALSTAT users with ADMIN rights can run the upgrade!!! If your system contains multiple databases, it is necessary to launch and execute
