SmartClass Teacher and Student: Updating an older version

What if we need to install a new version of SmartClass Teacher and Student in an existing Lab where an older version of the software is already installed?

The SmartClass Teacher or Student software can be directly installed on a computer that is running an older version of the teacher or student software without the need for uninstalling the old version or erasing files or folders.


The new software will detect the presence of a previous version and will not overwrite the database and or key configuration parameters.


Just make sure to close the application before updating.


Caution: The SmartClass Server Setup is only for new installations.

Never upgrade an existing database, you would lose the content, all the users, and all saved student responses & associated teacher feedback.
