3.     You will be asked if you want to upgrade your Zetadocs Server, select Yes.

4.     Follow the wizard to accept the software licence agreement and complete the installation.

If you also require OCR support, then:

1.     Download the latest version of the Zetadocs OCR Engine installer, this will install the latest Abbyy FineReader Engine and Abbyy license service.

2.     The Abbyy license manager will be displayed at the end of the installation.
