Upgrading from SQLitening 1.4 to 1.54

I have quite a number of customers that are using SQLitening v1.4 and I would
like to upgrade them to version 1.54.

To do it correctly, what steps are recommended?

Can I just just delete the old files and copy the new file to their hard disk?
Does the SQLitening Server need to be UnInstalled first?
Do they need to reboot their computer.

I need to be able to automate the process because most of my customers are
not computer literate.  Any suggestions?

Hi Marty,

I only had to do it on one intallation. I did not reboot, I just stoped SQLitening server and replaced all the files on the server and local machines, updated the config file, restarted the SQLitening server and all was well, BUT, I did have an issue with the new SQLite dll so please be sure to read the following link:

Good luck and I hope it helps,

Marc

You can run SQLiteningServerAdmin from another process. From the source:
'  This program can run in Quiet mode by passing the Q command line parm.
'  The Q must be proceeded with a / or - (OS standard).  The Q must be followed
'  by a numerical value for the action requested as follows:
'      1 = Install
'      2 = Start --- will first Install if required
'      4 = Stop
'      8 = Uninstall --- will first Stop if required
'     16 = Reload Config
'  This program will return the following process exit codes if in Quiet mode:
'     0 = All OK
'     1 = Can't perform request, service in wrong status
'     2 = Request failed.
'     9 = Service in unknown or invalid status
