Need Reassurance Before Upgrading from 9.10

Recommended Posts

Good Morning, I have not had an opportunity to upgrade LB/BB since 9.10.  While going through the change logs, I noticed with 10.1 the following:  " The LaunchBox installer now requires the .NET Framework 4.8 due to a serious bug in the .NET Framework 4.7 that was causing startup crashes on Windows 7."  Does this mean I need to install .NET Framework 4.8 first before upgrading, or does the installer take care of everything on that end?  Also, will LB bring me straight to 10.7, or will I need to upgrade one level at a time until I am up to date?

Thanks guys.

Hi Garret, the installer *should* install the framework and everything you need, but we have seen some rare cases of issues, especially if you're not up to date with Windows updates. It should work perfectly fine to upgrade from 9.10 directly to 10.7. I would run all Windows updates first, however.

You can also back up your LaunchBox folder and easily go back if you have any issues.

Thanks for the reply Jason.  Really appreciate the support.

I just went through this last week.  I decided to manually update to .NET 4.8+ utilizing Windows Update (on Windows 7, btw) before upgrading to the latest release version of LaunchBox.  This worked great, and fixed the launch crash I had documented with earlier versions of LaunchBox in another thread here months ago.
