Upgrading from a previous version
To upgrade from a previous version, download the new installer, execute it, and follow the process. The installer will detect an existing installation and will automatically remove it before installing the new one. During this process, your settings will be preserved.
Each Bitvise SSH Server license comes with 12 months of access to new versions included free of charge. Additional upgrade access can be purchased either with the initial license, or subsequently.
If your upgrade access has expired, you will need to purchase one or more license-years of upgrade access to get a new activation code. You can do this through your License Overview. The cost is $19.95 per SSH Server license and per year.
Help! The installer does not start?
Depending on your Windows version, security settings, and how the installer was downloaded, you may need to take an extra step to start it. On Windows Server 2016, right-click the installer executable in Windows Explorer, click Properties, and see if you need to check Unblock on the General tab.
