Upgrading SEUM

  • All SEUM Recorders and Players in your environment need to be running on the same version number. To upgrade to this version, run the executable files on your current installation. There is no need to uninstall anything. All previous settings and transactions will be saved.


  • When you upgrade your Players, the player agent self-registers and your current transactions will begin to poll again. If you uninstall player agents, transactions will go into unknown status. Once you install newer player agents on the same machine with the same settings, transactions will be polled again.
