Updating BiG EVAL

Table of Contents

You can use the same setup-package whether you install a new BiG EVAL instance or you are updating an existing one. The setup-package recognizes by itself whether to install or upate the instance.

Important: We recommend to make a backup of your BiG EVAL server and BiG EVAL database before starting the update procedure.

Prerequisites

  • You need local administrator permissions on the BiG EVAL server to install an upate.
  • You need the username and the password of the BiG EVAL service account.

Downloading the Setup-package

You can download the setup-package of BiG EVAL from the following URL: https://bigeval.com/downloads/

Please ensure that the downloaded file is not blocked by Windows by opening the Properties-Dialog of the file in Windows Explorer. There you may see a button or a checkbox “Block” respectively “Unblock”.

Unzipping the Setup-package

Unzip the downloaded ZIP-file on the BiG EVAL server.

Running the Setup

  1. Start the setup by double-clicking on BiGeval.exe
  2. Read and accept the license agreement and click on “Install”.
  3. The setup needs local administrator permissions. Therefore the setup asks for that if needed. Please login as administrator if needed.
