SNDTWEET Release Upgrade Installation

The SNDTWEET product can be upgraded from the Download page. Link to that page and you can both download the latest version of the software and obtain the instructions necessary for the upgrade installation process.

If you have received a software upgrade on CD shipped to you, then you can upgrade your SNDTWEET installation using the following instructions.

Kisco Information Systems recommends that you print this web page and use it as a check list while installing your SNDTWEET software upgrade from the CD that you have received. The CD includes the software plus the latest software documentation. The "Manuals" folder in the CD contains the latest documentation in PDF format.

If you are using any of the monitor features in SNDTWEET, make sure they are all shut down normally and that the ITWEET subsystem has been stopped before you begin your upgrade.

To install a SNDTWEET upgrade from media received from Kisco Information Systems, please do the following:

  1. Make sure that no users are logged into any of the menus in the SNDTWEET system.

  2. Sign on using the QSECOFR id.

  3. Check the following system values. They should be set as indicated here. If they are not, note the current settings then change them to these settings:
    QVFYOBJRST - value 3 or lower
    QFRCCVNRST - value 0
  4. Place the installation CD in your system and key the following command:
    LODRUN DEV(xxxx)
    where xxxx is the name of your CD drive.

  5. During installation, SNDTWEET does the following:

    • Saves the old SNDTWEET program library in library SNDTWTOLD in a save file named SAVF
    • History information and settings are transferred to the newly installed library.
    • Transfers your permanent install license code to the new version.
    • Additional documentation is printed which covers topics that have been added or changed since the user documentation manual was last printed.
    • Preserves your configuration settings from the current installed version.

  6. When the command finishes, the SNDTWEET Master Menu will be displayed.

  7. If you changed any system values at step #4, reset them back to their original values now.

  8. Go to the INSTALL menu in library SNDTWEET and run option #3. Check the installation status shown at the center of the screen to make sure that it still shows that the software is permanently installed. If you see any other status, contact Kisco Information Systems as the software will not function correctly until this is corrected.

If you are upgrading to SNDTWEET Release level 2.12 or higher from a release prior to 2.12, then you must do digital certificate configuration work on your system before SNDTWEET will work for you. Please review the section in the documentation manual that covers this task.

You can delete the library named SNDTWTOLD created during the installation after you are certain that the new release is working to your satisfaction.
