Upgrading the Application

Application Upgrade

To upgrade from an older version of the Workforce Access Client to the latest without removing the current device registration, follow these instructions:

Versions 2.6.x or higher

To upgrade without affecting the previous environment, use the following command.

📘

Example Update

msiexec.exe /q /i WorkforceAccess.msi

The above command will replace all necessary binaries and update the product version without removing existing device registration.

❗️

Silent operations usage

Either "Command line prompt" or "Windows power shell" must be open as "Administrator" in order to perform all silent operations (install, upgrade, remove). Otherwise, a silent operation will not change the target machine.

By default, silent install will reboot the target machine. If reboot is unnecessary at installation time, "/norestart" option may be used in addition to the standard upgrade command such as:

C:\download directory\msiexec.exe /q /norestart /i WorkforceAccess.msi

🚧

The Installation Wizard Does Not Update Software

Running the installation wizard is the same as a fresh install. Upgrading should be done via command line using the optional /q option for a silent install
