The PROMOTIC system installation package contains all components stated in the pricelist. It is possible to use all components in the Demo/Freeware mode. In order to use all components for unlimited time in applications bigger than 30 variables it is necessary to purchase the corresponding licenses.
The PROMOTIC system is continuously innovated by its authors. Every new version of the PROMOTIC system is marked by the number of Service Pack (this is important to know, for example, for later updates by newer versions, on technical questions, etc.). The versions of the PROMOTIC system are labeled as follows:
Promotic8.XX.YY - where "XX" is version number and "YY" is the number of Service Pack (e.g. "Promotic 9.0.9")
Launch the Promotic9xxyy.exe installation file and follow the setup program instructions.
Launch the Promotic9xxyy.exe installation file. The installation program recognizes the previous installed version. By continuing the installation the new version will be added automatically while the original version stays installed.
Only the files that are common for all versions can be replaced.The management of all installed versions can be easily done by the PmManager program, that is included.
Select Add/Remove Programs from the menu option Start/Settings/Control Panel in OS Windows (this may differ by the OS version). From the list of installed programs select the item PROMOTIC9 and confirm it by the button. The installation program opens the window where you select and confirm the required option.
Note: During the uninstallation a box with a warning can appear (in exceptional cases) that some of ActiveX files cannot be removed from Windows registry. This warning appears if the folder of the original installation was deleted, renamed or the named file of ActiveX was deleted, moved, upgraded or registered in a different way than by means of the installation program. The warning can be cancelled without effecting the functionality of the operating system.
Problem with Windows Remote Desktop installationThe installation of Hardware (USB) licence key driver is a part of the PROMOTIC system installation process. Because the access to HW resources of the server is limited in this mode, the installation of this driver must be executed locally. See: PROMOTIC system and Windows remote desktop (RDP).
