How do I upgrade to a newer version of Pylon?

This document explains how to obtain a new version of Pylon.

Before you can install the latest version, you first will need to obtain that version, then you will have to uninstall the previous version, both from the desktop and from the device. Note that you cannot save any existing Pylon configuration databases or settings and you should record your license key from the previous version before uninstalling it.

Note: If you are upgrading across major versions, you will need to get a new license key. For example a license key from 5.1 will work with 5.2, 5.2.2 and 5.2.3 but a license key from 4.02 will not work with 5.x software.

  1. Obtain the latest version of Pylon.

    Go to our Pylon Web page to evaluate the latest production version of Pylon Pro and Pylon Conduit. Once you receive your eval license by email or if you have already purchased a license for the newest release, you will be able to install Pylon. During the installation, enter your license number/serial number when prompted for serial number.


  2. Record your current Pylon configuration settings.

    If you are using an earlier version of Pylon, manually record any configuration settings from your existing Pylon Configuration Database (pyloncfg.nsf) that you want to save. When you install the current version of Pylon, your old configuration database (typically found at C:\Lotus\Notes\Data or C:\Lotus\Domino\Data) is renamed to include a date and time extension, for example, pyloncfg.nsf.5-19-2004-171857.


  3. Uninstall the previous version from both your desktop and your device.
