Prepare for the FireDaemon Fusion 6 Upgrade
- If you are upgrading to Fusion 6 from an earlier version of Fusion 6, your configuration will be preserved and your product will be upgraded
- If you are upgrading to Fusion 6 from Fusion 5, your product will be upgraded, however, some configuration items may be lost. Ensure you backup and keep a note of your Fusion 5 settings prior to upgrading.
ISSUE #1. We have had reports of FireDaemon Fusion hanging after upgrade from earlier versions. If you experience this, uninstall FireDaemon Fusion along with the Visual Studio C++ 2015 x86 runtime. Reboot, then try installing Fusion again. The Visual Studio C++ 2017 x86 runtime should now be deployed as part of the install. This also has the unfortunate side effect of your settings will be lost. Prior to uninstall backup the C:\Program Files (x86)\FireDaemon Fusion\configuration directory. Once the install has completed successfully and you can access Fusion, stop the FireDaemon Fusion service and drop your original configuration files back in.
For 32-bit and 64-bit Microsoft Windows operating systems
