  1. Before upgrading, we recommend that you first make a copy of all of your assets by exporting all of your data flows and custom nodes:
    1. From the Directory, select My Documents, then press and hold Ctrl and click to select all of your data flows and custom nodes.
    2. From the Details panel on the right of the screen, select Export.
    3. When asked if you want to include dependencies, select Yes, then click Export.
    4. Save the exported LNA and make a note of the location. You can use this at a later date to recover your documents if required.
    5. From the Directory, select Public Documents, then repeat the steps above to export and save an LNA containing any data flows and nodes from this collection.
  2. Caution: Ensure that there are no instances of Data360 Analyze running on the machine.
  3. Download the software from: https://www.precisely.com/product/precisely-data360/data360-analyze
  4. Note: The end user who will be running Data360 Analyze should be logged onto the computer for installation.

    Right-click the application installation file and select Run as administrator. If you do not have administrative privileges, an admin user can enter their credentials to allow the installation to continue.

    The installer will guide you through the process step by step. The key steps are called out below.

  5. You will be prompted to choose where to install Data360 Analyze. When prompted, select Yes, update the existing installation if you want to install the latest version of Data360 Analyze into the same location as the previous version, or select Update but change installation directory if you want to change your installation directory.
    Note: Both options uninstall the previous version of Data360 Analyze before installing the latest version.
  6. The upgrade process creates a backup of the Data360 Analyze\site directory. By default, temporary execution data is included in this backup if it is stored in the default Data360 Analyze\site\data\executions location. This is temporary data that is created when nodes run and can become very large over time, therefore it is recommended that you only select Backup temporary execution data if sufficient space is available. If your temporary data is stored outside of the default location, it will not be included in the backup.
  7. If one or more of the default ports is in use, the installer will ask you to provide an alternative. Enter any number that is not already in use, for example, for the Data360 Analyze server, you could try 7732. For information on starting/stopping the Data360 Analyze server, see Starting and stopping the Data360 Analyze Server.
  8. The installer will use your existing license during the upgrade process. If you are a Data360 Analyze Professional Desktop or Data360 Analyze Power Desktop user, you may need to obtain a new license by clicking the license activation link in the welcome email that you received when you purchased the product, as follows:
    1. From the machine that you have installed Data360 Analyze on, click the link provided, then enter your machine's Hostname (Computer name).
    2. Click the blue Activate button.
    3. Download the license file by clicking the green Download button, then save the license file in a safe location as you will need to apply it after installation.

    After installation, you can apply your new license by selecting Licensing from the Help menu in the top right corner of the Data360 Analyze screen. For more information on applying a new license, see the integrated product help.

  9. Launch Data360 Analyze, see Launching the software and accessing help.

    During the upgrade, your data flows and nodes are automatically imported into the new version of Data360 Analyze. If at any point you want to manually import the assets that you exported in step 1, you can do this by selecting Import > Data Flows or Nodes from the Directory. For more information on exporting and importing your data flows and nodes, see the integrated product help.
