How to upgrade form Microix Workflow Modules Version 2013.XX.X to 2018.XX.X

The steps mentioned below will allow the workstation to update itself (employee need to have local admin permission).

Note: If the employee do not have local admin permissions you will run into permission issues. Please make sure employee has local admin rights before you proceed with the update to allow the application to uninstall and reinstall automatically.

If you do not want to allow Local admin rights for employee then It is advised to deploy this upgrade to each workstation using Group Policy along with the MSI installer. Please follow step 1 to step 5 and follow the link below.

Step 5: Microix Share Folder
After the Microix Server Component is successfully installed, a new Microix Share directory will be created on the root of your "C" or "D" drive. It includes the setup files for the workstation installation and some additional folders that are used during upgrades.

The Microix Share Folder will be shared automatically during the server installation and is given default read/write permissions to the user "Everyone". There are times when the installation process fails to perform this task due to security issues. Follow the instructions below to manually share this folder and give the required permissions to access the folder. The Microix Share folder can be relocated to another drive by simply copying the entire folder and pasting it to a new location. The directory should be made available to every workstation with read/write privileges.

How to Manually Share the "Microix" Folder:
1.Click Start>All Programs>Accessories, and then click Windows Explorer
2.Expand My Computer, and then click the drive or folder where the Microix Share folder is located
3.Right-click on the folder, and then click Sharing and Security
4.Click Share this folder and enter the shared name as "Microix Share"

How to Manually Configure Shared Permissions:
1.On the Sharing tab, click Permissions and then click Add.
2. Select the group account "Everyone" or "Domain Users" and grant read/write privileges
3.Click OK to complete the process


Step 6: When the users login to Microix 2013 from their workstation they will get a prompt to update from 2013.XX.X to 2018.XX.X. Once they click Ok, Microix will install 2018 version automatically.
