2014 Enterprise Desktop Server, Client
2014 Enterprise Desktop Installation/Update Guide
The following update and installation instructions for ManagerPlus Enterprise 2014 Desktop are
divided into two parts: the server upgrade/installation and the client upgrade/installation. These
updates are available on the ManagerPlus support page: www.managerplus.com/support and can be
accessed by clicking the downloads/updates link.
Under the “ManagerPlus 2014” section, you’ll see two links: “ManagerPlus Enterprise (Version
2014.1.0.859)” (the client) and “ManagerPlus Enterprise Server.” ManagerPlus recommends that the
server be upgraded first, followed by the client. If the server has already been upgraded, you can skip
the first section and proceed to Part 2: ManagerPlus 2014 Client Installation Guide on page 14.
If your company or organization requires security credentials for downloads and installations, be sure
to obtain those and have them ready at hand as you proceed through the following steps.
