When Acunetix WVS is opened, it will notify you that a new build is available for download.
Navigate to: General > Program Updates, and click on ‘Download and Install New Build’ from the toolbar.
The new build will begin downloading.
Once the download is complete, you will be asked if you want to continue with the installation. Click ‘Yes’ to start the upgrade.
You will then be asked to uninstall your current build. Click ‘Yes’ to continue.
Confirm that you would like to uninstall your current build of Acunetix WVS, and the uninstall process will begin.
During the un-installation, you will be given the option to keep the scan results database (used by the Reporter). Select ‘No’ to keep the information about previous scans.
When the uninstall process is complete, click ‘Next’ and the installation process of the latest build will begin.
Once the installation process is done, you can launch the new build of Acunetix WVS where you have the option to import your settings from your previous build.
Who is eligible for build upgrades?
All Acunetix WVS customers are eligible for a build upgrade within the same version. However you would require a valid Maintenance Agreement for version upgrade. Contact our Sales Team at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
