Step 1.
 
Provide your sites current licence file.
 
 
Paytec will process the license and provide replacement Papercut MF licence.
 
 
Step 2.
 
Download Papercut NG
 

ftp://ftp.papercut.com/pub/pcng/14.x/

 

 

Download Papercut MF

 
 
 

Step 3.
 
Migration process
 
1) Upgrade to latest version of PC-NG on server
2) Backup Server from PC-NG admin console | Options Tab | Backup Tab | Export Now button. Rename backup to export.zip (avoids typo's in later steps) and copy it to the root of C drive E.G C:\export.zip
3) Take a copy of the complete NG folder structure in the event we need to refer to any configuration files later then Unistall Papercut NG from ADD  / REMOVE Programs
4) Install PCMF on server with new version (just do a basic next, next, next install)
 
Restore backup on server
 
1) Stop Papercut services on server
2) From the command prompt .\Papercut mf\server\bin\win perform the following commands
3) db-tools init-db -f
4) db-tools import-db -f "C:\export.zip" 
5) Restart Papercut services
6) Logon to admin console.
 
Step 4.
 
Other considerations are to enable and display the DEVICE tab. From PC-MF admin console | Options Tab | Advanced Tab | External Hardware Integration menu | Tick the check box labelled "Enable external hardware integration (for supported devices only)"
