Upgrading to Jet 2019: Upgrade Jet Reports

Jet ReportsThis post is part of the series on Upgrading to Jet 2019.

Earlier in this series, I did an upgrade of Jet Analytics; in this post, I am going to upgrade Jet Reports (formerly known as Jet Professional, and before that Jet Essentials).

To upgrade Jet Reports, download Jet Reports 2019:

Download Jet Global Software

Extract the downloaded zip file and run the Jet Setup.exe in the 1 – Jet Reports – REQUIRED folder:

Run Jet Setup.exe

Enter your Activation Code and click Next:

Jet Setup - Activation

Select All Components and click Next:

Jet Setup - Choose an installation option

I have deselected the Jet Hub option as I don’t have this installed on my demo environment; click Next:

Jet Setup - Select Features

I usually opt to run services under a domain account, but Jet recommend that the Jet Service Tier run as NETWORK SERVICE (when I did try to run it as a domain account, it didn’t work).

Click Next to proceed:

Jet Setup - Jet Service Tier details

Enter the full SQL Server Instance name, choose the authentication method and set the Database name and click Next:

Jet Setup - Jet Services database and login information

I have opted to Upgrade the existing database so as to preserve the settings, and to make a database backup. Click Next:

Jet Setup - Upgrade database?

Check, and update if necessary, the Jet Service Tier Host and Port and click Next:

Jet Setup - Jet Service Tier information

Click Yes on the upgrade message; once you’ve clicked yes and performed the upgrade all client machines will need to be updated before they can use Jet Reports:

Jet Setup - Confirm Jet is to be upgraded

Click Install to begin the installation:

Jet Setup - Ready to make changes

Once the installation is finished, close the window. All client machines will need the client components installed before they can use Jet Reports.

What should we write about next?
