Before Upgrading

Before you consider upgrading to FireDaemon Pro 4, please ensure you have completed the following pre-flight checks:


Backup

  • Ensure you backup and/or snapshot your machine
  • Ensure you export your FireDaemon Pro service definitions for safe keeping.


Get New License Keys

  • Your FireDaemon Pro 3 or earlier license key will NOT work with this version
  • FireDaemon Pro 4 and FireDaemon Pro 4 OEM is available on demand to customers with a current Software Assurance subscription. Please contact us to obtain your license key or link to download Pro OEM.
  • If you don't have a Software Assurance subscription you can upgrade for 50% off the base license price. Please contact us to obtain your discount coupon.
  • You can purchase new Pro 4 licenses with optional Technical Support and Software Assurance subscriptions via 2Checkout.


Check Your Upgrade Path

  • If you are running Pro 0.X, 1.X or Trinity 2.X - there is no upgrade path to Pro 4. You will need to install Pro 4 and manually re-create your services.
  • If you are running Pro 3.X - ensure you have upgraded to the latest version of Pro 3 first. This is important as earlier versions of Pro 3 have a bug which means your service configuration cannot be imported into Pro 4. Then install Pro 4 and migrate your services as part of the installation process.
  • Please ensure you upgrade "like for like". If you have the 32-bit version of Pro 3 installed, then install the 32-bit (x86) version of Pro 4. If you have the 64-bit version of Pro 3 installed, then install the 64-bit (x64) version of Pro 4.


Download The Correct Version Of FireDaemon Pro 4 For Your Operating System

If you don't have FireDaemon Pro 3 installed, then via the links below:

  • If you are running a 64-bit Microsoft operating system please download the 64-bit (x64) version of FireDaemon Pro 4
  • If you are running a 32-bit Microsoft operating system please download the 32-bit (x86) version of FireDaemon Pro 4.


Prepare for the FireDaemon Pro 4 Upgrade

  • If you are upgrading Pro 4 from an earlier version of Pro 4, your Pro 4 services will be stopped and restarted as part of the upgrade. If you have FireDaemon Fusion 6 installed, this will be restarted as part of the upgrade too
  • If you already have applied your FireDaemon Pro 4 license, then your license will be preserved during the upgrade. There's no need to re-apply your license key.

  • If you are upgrading to Pro 4 from Pro 3, you will have the opportunity to import your existing Pro 3 services during the upgrade. Please ensure you have backed up your service definitions in advance. Additionally, ensure you have updated FireDaemon Pro 3 to the latest build before upgrading. Your Pro 3 services will be stopped, migrated and then started again under Pro 4 control. You can optionally uninstall Pro 3 at this time too.
