Altova FlowForce Server 2024 Advanced Edition

When you upgrade to a newer version of FlowForce Server, the license of your previous version will be used automatically for the newer version if, during installation:


the new version is registered with the same LicenseServer as the one with which the previous version of FlowForce Server was registered;

you accept the license agreement of FlowForce Server.


The simplest way to carry over a license from the previous version of FlowForce Server to the newer version is to let the installation process implement the required steps. The relevant steps during the installation process are listed below in the order in which they occur:


1.Let the installer register the new version of FlowForce Server with the LicenseServer that holds the license used by the older version of FlowForce Server.

2.Accept the license agreement of FlowForce Server. (If you do not accept the agreement, the new version will not be installed.)


Note:If you do not register FlowForce Server with the correct LicenseServer during the installation process, you will need to register and license FlowForce Server manually with your alternative LicenseServer.


Important information about instance-data directory

With 2024 R2, the default path to the instance-data directory has changed and contains no year anymore. This is the new recommended naming convention, because in-place upgrades are safer and faster. 2024 R2 has also introduced a new way of installing server instances: via the Setup page as opposed to the installation wizard. The new method provides more control over the location of your instance data. For more information, see Configuration via Setup Page.
