-Upgrade process ​is a type of update ​where the application version ​is change ​from 1 major release to another, best example is from version 5.42.0.195 to 6.0.0.132 ​and this require ​data conversion. On the other hand update is only applying a patch on the same version ​series, best example is from version 6.0.0.124 to 6.0.0.132, ​also from 6.0.50.40 to 6.0.50.50 ​and this does not require data conversion. \\+An upgrade ​is where the application version ​has changed ​from 1 major release to another. An example ​of this is when the version ​number has changed from 5.42.0.195 to 6.0.0.132. This upgrade requires System Five to perform a data conversion. ​\\

 ===== Updating WEAR  ===== ===== Updating WEAR  =====
-Both systemsWEAR and MAIN can be updated in any order mannerMain system can be updated first and vice versa, synchronizing transactions ​is not suggested while version ​of system five between 2 systems is not the sameThey must be updated ​to the same version before performing synchronization.\\+In an update scenarioyou should run a couple update cycles before you update the version. That way there won'​t ​be any outstanding invoices or data sitting on the FTPAny data or batches that are there will be empty batches. Once that is done, you can update the version ​using the FTP Updater within System Five in both the Main and Remote datasetsUsually the Main dataset would be updated ​first, then the remotes. Never attempt to synchronize transactions between two **different** versions of System Five.\\

-Upgrading WEAR from 1 major version to another will take a different ​way to complete it. As stated above this will require data conversion. After upgrading the application version on the MAIN system,it is followed by data conversion.

-After completing ​the recreation wizard, the recreated ​WEAR dataset setting ​in inside ​the MAIN Dataset folder, it needs to be copied to WEAR computer, replaced ​the old WEAR dataset. ​Regarding ​the new major version, a new package should be installed on WEAR computer.(Installer can be downloaded through mywindward website - customer credentials needed). As required ​the WEAR system should have the same version as the MAIN system. +After creating ​the remote ​WEAR datasets from S5poll ​in the man computer, it needs to be copied to WEAR computer. Rename ​the old WEAR dataset ​in case it is needed as a reference laterCopy the new WEAR dataset to the remote ​computer. ​You will also need to download ​the installer for the new version, ​or copy the bin folder ​from the Main computer ​and paste it into the bin folder ​on the remote ​computer. ​The new WEAR Remote **must** have the same version as the MAIN computer.

-Note: If its not possible to install ​the new version ​package on WEAR computerfollowing ​the step for System Five Update Tutorial will work, provided after completing this, its not allowed to log in to WEAR system until its dataset is recreated ​from the main and old WEAR dataset is replaced ​on WEAR computer. ​Old WEAR dataset can be deleted and place the newly recreated Dataset to the same path/​directory. After making sure that both systems are running on the same major version, synchronization process can took place again +
