Updating POSPac UAV Installation and Upgrade POSPac Licenses

There are a few things to keep in mind when updating the local Applanix POSPac UAV installation, such as to upgrade the POSPac licenses. The process for updating is relatively simple, but there are a few wrinkles to keep in mind when updating so that no issues are encountered by the user. Install the POSPac update ONLY after installing the compatible True View EVO update. Compatibility chart is at the bottom of the article.

Note: This update will only affect users that run POSPac locally. For users running POSPac Cloud, no update is required.

  1. Download POSPac UAV and the Applanix Software License Utility from the Downloads -> Software section of your Reckon account.
  2. On your Applanix License Server:
    1. Users installing POSPac 8.7 are asked to uninstall previous versions of POSPac and must uninstall the Software Licence Utility (SLU) before installing this latest release. Note that the SLU is a separate entry in Windows Add/Remove Programs and so this must be uninstalled independently
    2. Install the POSPac UAV version 8.7 or only the Applanix Software License Utility (SLU), as desired. Ensure to install the update using “Run As Administrator” (RAA) when starting the process, as is standard practice for installing executables in the Windows environment.
  3. On the license server machine, open the “Software License Utility” (SLU).
    1. Verify the SLU says, “Found license manager running on localhost”, and displays the Serial Number and your current EID. Note: The EID changes with each version.
  4. Change the license version from 8.6 to 8.7 before using 8.7 for the first time.
    1. Select the set of POSPac licenses,
    2. Enter “8.7” value to the right of the “Upgrade License” button
    3. Select “Upgrade License”
    4. The value shown in the version column should change to 8.7.
    5. Note: If you encounter a “Revocation is not allowed for this entitlement” error while attempting to update to v8.7, please:
      1. Uninstall all versions of POSPac and the SLU.
      2. Delete the “C:\Program Files (x86)\Applanix\SoftwareLicenseUtility” folder.
      3. Install POSPav v8.7 or only the SLU, as desired.
      4. Try updating the license version again.
  5. Install POSPac UAV v8.7 on the desired client machines where you have installed the latest version of True View EVO.
