Obtaining Upgraded Unanet Software

For as long as you maintain an active Unanet Support Agreement, you are free to visit our download site at http://support.unanet.com and download any updates or add-ons you need.  This page focuses on obtaining a new minor point release version of the Unanet Software.

The topics covered on this page include:

 

Note:  As a general rule, Unanet usually publishes any new point releases on Thursdays if their are any changes warranting a new build, with less frequent builds for older releases.  This is not a definitive schedule but a general practice.


Obtaining the Unanet Software

When you purchased Unanet, you probably visited our support site and requested an ID (if not, you can request one at this time).  Use your support ID to gain access to our Support site (http://support.unanet.com).  

Note:  Once you get your support site id, take some time and browse the support site -- it contains many useful links for configuring and maintaining your Unanet system.  Also available on the support site are additional training files, and a change log so that you can stay updated on the latest point releases and builds.

Log into the support site using your ID/password and click on the downloads link on the left-hand side.  You will be presented with a list of software components to download.  Regardless of your platform OS (Unix or Windows), you will want to download the latest unanet  war file from the "Point Release Upgrade" section.  

IMPORTANT --  you will only need to download the WAR file from the support site.  DO NOT download the full new installation package.  Running the full install over an existing setup will overwrite your customer specific property files with the default versions.

Save this file to your server somewhere -- you may need to access it again.

ZIP FILE Note: Occasionally, the downloaded file will have an extra ".zip" file extension appended to the file (due to certain browser security settings).  Should this occur, simply rename the file without the .zip extension (do not attempt to unzip the file).
