Manually Upgrading your Impero Server


To upgrade the server and clients please follow the steps below:

1: Please make sure your Impero server is on version 5.2.10 or above, 4GB RAM, Dual-Core Processor and .Net framework 4.7.2+ is installed before upgrading   

 All Impero clients will require .Net Framework 4.7.2+ for the client to run. 

2: Download the install files from the link below.  

3: Extract the downloaded file and run the “ImperoServerSetup****.msi” to upgrade your Impero Serve



If not please manually update the server by running the following install file: ImperoServerSetup8525.msi in the following location:  

c:\Program Files (x86)\impero solutions Ltd\impero server\updates

Using Impero Auto Update


For users running V6.0+ Impero includes an Automatic upgrade option contained in the Impero Server Application. (As illustrated below) 

In order for both the Server and Clients to upgrade to the latest release, please ensure you select both options. (Illustrated below) 


Open the Impero server and enable download updates and automatically update Education Pro.  Click on the tools tab in the top left corner and select Web check. 

The server will now perform a Web check and download the latest licence settings and setup files for the version you are licenced for. 

From this point the server will continue to upgrade Impero Clients, then automatically reconnect them after the upgrade. 

Once you have upgraded your client machines they will require a re-start, this is to make sure the upgrade is fully completed and all the applications are in the correct location.
