Installing and Upgrading Image-Master 7
Image-Master 7 is written in modern 32-bit and
64-bit development platforms. This release brings together a
multitude of customer requested improvements in functionality.
Functionality is built into many shared modules
that alleviate the need to immediately cease Image-Master
operations when installing a software update or upgrade.
Image-Master keeps track of the users who are running each
component. When the last user exits an Image-Master shared
component, a check is performed to see if an update to the module
is required. If it is, the software verifies that the user has
enough privileges to perform a software upgrade and then performs
the upgrade silently and transparently.
