Updating a Jedox Installation in Windows


Important note: databases that have been loaded in Jedox version 2018.2 cannot be loaded in version 2018.1 or older!

Before you begin:

  • Create a backup of your Jedox data (spreadsheets, reports, and DBs).
  • Create a backup of your manually adapted Jedox config files.
  • You must have administrator rights to install Jedox software in Windows.
  • You must have administrator rights to install Jedox software in Windows.
  • You must use a setup file for an installation of Jedox 2018.2 (file name: Jedox_2018_2.exe).
  • We recommend that you perform the update on a test system and check it with appropriate plausibility tests before you upgrade a production system.
  • We recommend stopping all Jedox services before you upgrade your installation. See Jedox Web Services for more information.

Jedox 2018.1, 7.1 or 7.0 (SRx):

You do not have to uninstall these components; they will be updated with the setup program.

If you do not change the identified paths and settings during the installation, then the existing databases and the existing settings will be preserved. In this case, it is not necessary to read back your saved data after you have finished the setup. If you change the paths detected, then Jedox will be installed anew without assuming the previous data.

Jedox components older than version 7.0:

For versions of Jedox older than 7.0, we recommend updating Jedox from one version to the next major release, without skipping over main versions. For example, we don’t recommend updating from Jedox version 6.0 to 2018.2. Therefore, please update your data first to version 7.0 and then to 2018.2.

Main Jedox versions are all versions without additional service releases (SR).
Please refer to the Knowledge Base article Support Lifecycle for more information.
