If you are upgrading from an earlier version of ControlPoint, the upgrade process is the same as that for the How to Install ControlPoint and How to Install and Configure ControlPoint Services with the following exceptions:
·After installing the new files, you will be given the option to Upgrade ControlPoint
·The license key, ControlPoint Service (xcAdmin) database, and ControlPoint Configuration site will be retained and updated, and
·If you have installed Discovery and/or SCM Services, they will be recreated in the folder C:\Program Files\Metalogix\ControlPoint\ControlPointFeatures\Services, and all settings (including the Connection String), will be preserved.
NOTE: If, prior to version 8.0, you installed ControlPoint into an existing Web application, it is no longer necessary to use a separate, scripted "Native" installation kit to perform an upgrade.
