6.2 Upgrading Liquid UI Server


Upgrading an existing installation of Liquid UI Server aka GuiXT Server.

Synactive releases regular updates to Liquid UI Server. If you are a paid customer, you will receive these updates and will need to upgrade your server. To upgrade your server, please do the following.

Note: You must have administrative rights to upgrade Liquid UI Server.
  1. Close all SAP windows, including the Logon Pad
  2. Go to the directory containing the Liquid UI Server files. On most machines, this directory can be found at C:\Program Files\Synactive Inc\GuiXTServer.
  3. Make a backup of the current GuiXTServer folder. Synactive recommends saving it as MMDDYYYY_GuiXTServer.
  4. Open the Services tool. This tool can usually be found at Start > Control Panels > Administrative Tools > Services..
  5. Find the Synactive R/3 Proxy Service as shown below and click the Stop button to stop the service.
