Important Information When Performing a JobControl Update

How do I keep my data from being lost during a JobControl update?

You should always follow these important instructions when performing a JobControl update. This will ensure that you don't lose any files or data when the software is finished updating.

Steps to Take Prior to a JobControl Update

  • Before you begin the update, ensure that you have complete administrator rights in Windows.
  • Begin the update immediately following the Windows start-up. This will avoid conflict with other applications on your PC.
  • Before you begin the update, create a service file and save the parameter data in the current material database.

We also recommend saving your material database before you begin updating the software. This will automatically save all your parameter data. You can find instructions for this here.
