Upgrade instructions


After upgrading the Board Server it is required to upgrade all Board Client and Office Add-in installations to the same version 10.3. A Capsule created or saved using version 10.3 can't be re-opened with an older version such as version 10.1.x or even older.

When you open Capsules created with prior versions of Board (version 9 or 8) a request of upgrade to Board 10 format prompts out. If you click Yes the Capsule is automatically updated in few secs and enabled to the Board Web Client. If you click 'No' you can still go on to use the Capsule but with the Board Win Client only


Compatibility Check

From Board 10.3 the consistency check-up between the Board Win Client version and the Board Server Version is performed on the minor release ID only (10.3.xxxxx). This means that :


Anyway if any of the BOARD Win Client, or the BOARD MS Office Add-In or the  BOARD's HTML5WebServer (Board Web Client) finds, during the execution of a Board Application (Capsule) any incompatibility with the BOARD Engine (Board Server) it stops the execution and asks for the Client upgrade.


User Encryption

Important Notice

The encryption method of the User Security Files and passwords, i.e. the files in the C:\BOARD\Users Folder (of the Board Server File System), has been changed. It is now adopting the SHA512 cryptographic hash function. The encryption is updated during the first run of the Board Server, occurring after the upgrade. It is not possible to utilize such Security files with older version of the Board Server. It is therefore recommended to backup such files before the Board Server upgrade, to eventually roll-back the system. Differently the Security User Files must be created from the scratch. It is anyway possible to de-activate this feature setting the parameter ForceSHA1 of  the Board Server configuration  file server_config_v2.xml, equal 'true'.  



Upgrading Board Web from version 10.0 to 10.3

All custom configuration settings of Board Web 10.0 which were stored in the following two files

c:\Program Files (x86)\Board\BoardWeb Api Server\BoardWebApiEngine.config

c:\Program Files (x86)\Board\BoardWeb Api Server\Web.config


are now in multiple files, all stored in the following subfolder

c:\Program Files (x86)\Board\BoardWeb Api ServerApp_Data\config


If you have an installation of Board Web server 10.0 and you defined some custom configurations in the Web.config or BoardWebApiEngine.config files, you must re-type your configurations in the new files of version 10.1.X located in the folder mentioned above.

It is of course not necessary if you already run 10.1.0 or later.
