FAQ# 2171: How do I upgrade from Store Manager 4.5 to 4.61?


How do I upgrade from Store Manager 4.5 to 4.61?


Before upgrading Proxis Store Manager Classic, you'll want to back up the current installation of the software. This can be done by going to the local disk (C:). From there, you'll want to copy WinPOS40 to a safe and easy to find location (The desktop or a flash drive would be good examples).

Please note that if you don't back up your data, the information may be lost!

Make sure to write down your last transaction number, you'll need it later.

After backing back your folder, you'll want to uninstall Store Manager from you system by using Add/Remove Programs.

  • Start Menu > Control Panel > Add/Remove programs (or Programs and Features)
  • Scroll through the list and find Proxis Store Manager
  • Select Proxis Store Manager and click Uninstall
After uninstalling the old version, reinstall with Proxis46.exe downloaded from HERE
  • Run proxis46.exe
  • During the installation, choose Single User or Network Server (Install New Empty Data Files)

Now you'll want to copy the data from your old installation back into the updated one.

  • Go to your old WinPOS40 folder that was copied earlier and copy the 'posdata' folder from inside.
  • Then navigate to the new installation folder (C:\WinPOS40) and paste the posdata folder there.
  • If prompted to merge or overwrite existing files, click yes to all.
  • After the files are in place, go the the Proxis Office application.
  • In Proxis Office, navigate to Setup > System Setup > More
  • Type your last transaction number that was copied earlier into the 'Last Transaction Number' field.
  • Click Close
  • Click OK/Save

Your software may need reactivation after the upgrade. Please contact support if this is the case.
