Upgrading Enterprise Designer

Upgrading from 11.0

If you are upgrading to Spectrum™ Technology Platform 11.0 SP1 from 11.0, you do not need to upgrade Enterprise Designer. However, you should delete this file before logging into 11.0 SP1:

C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Roaming\Pitney Bowes\Enterprise Designer\Settings.xml

Upgrading from a version prior to 11.0

If you are upgrading to Spectrum™ Technology Platform 11.0 SP1 from a version prior to 11.0, you must upgrade Enterprise Designer due to security changes.

Important: Once you upgrade your server to 11.0 SP1 from a version prior to 11.0, you will not be able to log in to Enterprise Designer until you upgrade it.

To upgrade Enterprise Designer:

  1. Uninstall the existing client tools by going to Start > All Programs > Pitney Bowes > Client Tools > Setup.
  2. Make sure that you have .NET 4.6 installed on the client machine. This is a newer version of .NET than was required in previous releases. Note that Windows 10 comes with this version of .NET installed by default.
  3. Download the client tools installer from the Spectrum™ Technology Platform welcome page, http://SpectrumServer:Port. The default port is 8080.
  4. Run the installer.
