Upgrade Client Components for Technicians
Alloy Discovery 8
Desktop Apps for Technicians
If you are upgrading from Alloy Navigator Express, you need to manually distribute the new version of the Alloy Discovery desktop apps among your technicians.
Installing Alloy Discovery 8 Client Components
Run the Alloy Discovery 8 installer on each computer (such as administrator’s and technician’s workstations) where a previous version of Alloy Discovery Desktop App is installed. On the Setup Type page, choose the Client installation option. This installation type includes the Alloy Discovery 8 Desktop App and all administrative tools, but does not include services and server tools.
When the installer prompts you to install report viewer components, select which component to install or accept the default selection if the user needs to view and print reports in the Alloy Discovery 8 Desktop App.
NOTE: Report viewer components enable the user to view and print reports. Customizing and creating reports requires third-party report designer software. For details on supported report formats and required report designer software, see Reporting.
