Steps to Upgrade:

  • Apply the latest build to your existing product installation as per the upgrade pack instructions provided in the above links. 

Important note: We strongly recommend that you take a backup of your entire Password Manager Pro installation folder before the upgrade, and keep the copy in a separate location. This helps you prevent any accidental loss of data, and will keep all your settings intact. If you're using an MS SQL server as the back-end database, back up the Password Manager Pro database as well before upgrading. Once the upgrade is successfully completed, remember to delete the backup.
