IMPORTANT - for larger installations we do strongly recommend that a test environment is used to validate upgrade before applying to production environment
- Download displayfiles.zip from https://downloads.pronestor.com/
- Turn off the application pool for the site.
- Go to the installationfolder. The default path is C:\inetpub\wwwroot\pronestor\display
- Make a backup of the entire installation folder. <- this is very important! If you skip this step, you loose all your settings.
- Overwrite the installationfolder with the files from displayfiles.zip.

When done - please login on to the Pronestor Display solution to validate the upgrade. The displays will automatically refresh once the server upgrade is done.
If you have upgraded from a version with a version number like 2.x.x.x - please go into the Internet Information Service, and set the application pool for Pronestor Display to use .NET Framework 4.0 - before starting Pronestor Display.
UPGRADE - displays
Once the server software of Pronestor Display has been upgraded, we strongly advise you to upgrade the displays with newest version of the Kiosk Browser as well (Android devices and iOS)
The upgrade is done by running the newest version of Kiosk Browser on each display.
