Installing and Upgrading Image-Master 7 Introduction


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.
