ApexSQL Log

This article describes how to update the Server-side components after updating the client side of the application

ApexSQL Log auto-updater updates only the client side of the application. This means that the Server-side components from the previous version of ApexSQL Log still exist on the SQL Server. This part of the application needs to be updated manually.

Server-side components can be updated in two ways:

Using ApexSQL Log Project dialog:

  1. Open ApexSQL Log after the update
  2. Click New when the Session dialog opens
  3. Select the server instance and enter credentials for the login with SQL Server sysadmin role
  4. Accept to install the Server-side components
  5. After the Server-side components are successfully installed, the data processing will start
