Make sure you have downloaded the correct version of the ODBC-SQL Server driver. If you are unsure as to your current version, please take a look in the installation_dir/easysoft/sqlserver_install.info file. This will tell you your platform and build information. If you do not know which version to download, please email , and make sure you attach your sqlserver_install.info file.

Note The default installation_dir is /usr/local.

Please be aware that upgrades are only available to supported customers. Please contact our sales team () if you are no longer supported and require a quotation for the new version. If you do not know whether your company is supported, you can check your last Easysoft invoice or email and ask the support team.

Upgrade Instructions

These instructions assume you have Easysoft installed in the default directory installation_dir/easysoft. If you have Easysoft installed in any other directory, please substitute installation_dir/easysoft with $EASYSOFT_ROOT.

The new version should be installed straight over the top of your existing version.

The simple steps for upgrading:

  1. Extract your downloaded Easysoft archive.
  2. From the extracted directory, run ./install — this will start the installation process.
  3. Towards the end of the installation, you will be asked if you require a license key. Choose No at this point.
  4. At the end of the installation, you will be prompted to set up an ODBC data source. This is not necessary, as your current data source will be compatible with this new version.

If you are upgrading from a previous version (e.g. version 2.0 to 2.1), please run this program post-installation:

cd /usr/local/easysoft/license

Select SQL Server from the list, and make a note of the retrieved site information number. Send this number, along with the licenses file from the same directory, to . The licensing team will then issue you a replacement license key.

This step is not required if you are installing a new build of an existing version (e.g. 2.1.1 to 2.1.2).

If you have any problems at all, please contact the support team ().
