Finally got a window free from customer demos. So, I took advantage of this time to upgrade our testing/demo system fromm v6 to v7 Beta. Our test box runs Win XP Pro SP3

I must say the upgrade process went smooth.

  1. Backup v6 using 3CX backup utility
  2. Uninstall v6 (do not select tick boxes...this leaves your config in place)
  3. Install v7
  4. Activate v7License key
  5. Restore v6 backup

Only major thing you need to be aware of is that your DIDs will need to be created. I'm not aure why this is but it was stated on the 3CX blog as a known item.

So, all in all, upgrade from 6 to 7 beta went smooth as silk.
