WebReport/i Release Upgrade Installation

Kisco Information Systems recommends that you print this web page and use it as a check list while installing your WebReport/i 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 experience a problem during this upgrade process, please refer to our recovery procedure. Contact Kisco Information System for support if this happens.

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

  1. End any Message Monitoring jobs that may be active on your system.
  2. End the WebReport/i Automatic Routing job (option #16 on the MASTER menu).
  3. End the routing subsystem using the following command:
  4. Verify that the subsystem and routing jobs are ended.
  5. Make sure that no users are logged into any of the menus in the WebReport/i system.
  6. Sign on using the QSECOFR id.
  7. 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 1
  8. If you are upgrading to WebReport/i Release 9 (or higher) from an earlier release level, create the new special user profile, WEBREPTUSR, using the following command:

    Note: This profile will now be the owner of all objects in the WebReport/i application library. Using this exact command will result in a user profile that cannot be used for logon purposes since no password has been assigned.

  9. Use the WRKDIRE command on your system and create an entry (option #1 on the first line) for user WEBREPTU. The Address field should be set to your system name. When the full screen is displayed, specify the user profile WEBREPTUSR and then take all of the default entries. This new profile must be enrolled in the system directory before you load this new version.
  10. Place the installation CD in your system and key the following command:
    LODRUN DEV(xxxx)

    where xxxx is the name of your CD drive.

    If you do not have an upgrade CD and want to install the upgrade using a downloadable virtual CD image file, please continue the process by clicking here.

  11. During installation, WebReport/i does the following:
    • Saves the old WebReport/i program library in library WEBREPOLD 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.
  12. When the command finishes, the WebReport/i Master Menu will be displayed.
  13. If you changed any system values at step #7, reset them back to their original values now.

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

If you have WebReport/i PDF installed, the new installation will be for the PDF version. If you have WebReport/i Basic installed, it will be active following the install. If you want to upgrade to the PDF version at this time, contact Kisco Information Systems for instructions and upgrade charges.

If you have just completed installing an upgrade of your already active license for WebReport/i, go to the INSTALL menu and run option #3. Verify that the display still shows that the software is permanently installed. If not, you will have to update the code that you obtained before starting the upgrade process. Also, contact Kisco and advise us that you have updated to a new release level. Let us know the specific version that you have just installed so we can keep our records current about your installation.
