ID: ZTN4181

This Zetadocs technical note applies to:

  • Version 5.x of Zetadocs for NAV


This technote explains how to perform an upgrade from Zetadocs Express v5.x to version 5.x of Zetadocs for NAV.

More information

Zetadocs Express offers a small subset of the functionality available in the full Zetadocs for NAV v5.x release, as such to upgrade requires you to do the majority of the standard install steps. The Zetadocs for NAV installers will detect and remove any Express specific components. As such you need to follow the standard installation instructions in the Zetadocs for NAV v5.x Installation guide with the two differences listed below. This will ensure you update the components required and that your existing SharePoint archive links to NAV are maintained.

Differing steps between a full install and an upgrade

  • You are required to upgrade the SharePoint Extensions as per the instructions below.
  • Do not carry out the Page Interfaces Importation steps in the installation guide.
