Updates / Upgrades

PA Server Monitor can be upgraded by simply installing the latest version on top of your existing installation. Your settings and databases will be upgraded as needed.

You might need to reset the PA Server Monitor service's Run As account (from Settings or the Windows Services applet), but other than that no further configuration changes will be needed.

I just wanted to say thank you for all your hard work over the years. You guys have always been great to work with. I was just looking in PA this morning and realizing how much it has done for us and wanted to let you know that we appreciate it.
