IMPORTANT: Please read through the following list before upgrading your NOAH System. This list will help you avoid potential installation errors.
- If your NOAH installation is currently integrated with a NOAH compatible office system, do not download and install NOAH System. Please contact your office system vendor for more details.
- DO NOT UNINSTALL YOUR PREVIOUS VERSION OF NOAH SYSTEM BEFORE INSTALLING THE NEW NOAH SYSTEM VERSION.
- Please note that the average install time for NOAH System is 45 minutes per PC. So please be sure to reserve sufficient time, especially for network installations.
During the upgrade, you will be prompted to reboot during the installation. Typically this will happen after the old NOAH has been uninstalled. After the reboot, the NOAH installation will continue. Do not skip any reboots when prompted. Each reboot performs an important function and skipping the reboot could result in a failed NOAH upgrade.
In some cases, locations will want to install NOAH System to second drive or alternate location. While NOAH 3.6 and later does support changing the installation path, be aware that the bulk of the NOAH System files will still install to the C drive. Many NOAH System files are installed toProgram Files\Common Files\HIMSA Shared. The path for these files cannot be changed to another drive or directory. Also the NOAH System SQL Express database location cannot be changed. This database is also installed to the C drive. Therefore changing the installation location for NOAH System will not end up saving a significant amount of disk space.
