If you see any red X’s, you will first need to install or upgrade those components. Click the Help link at the end of each item to be directed to LabTech documentation that will walk you through the installation.
**Note: If you are missing the MySQL connect, the 64-bit connector is required. The LabTech documentation points to the 32-bit version, but this will cause the prerequisite check to fail and the red X will remain.
Once you have everything installed, click the Check Prerequisites button and your window should look as below:
You are no ready to continue with the installation. Click Next. The installer will now run.
Upon completion, open the control center and log in. From here you should navigate to Tools > Solution Center in the menu bar. Updates will be available in the Solution Center but as always, you should only update what you need to. You are now updated to LabTech 10.5 and ready to take advantage of the new features.
