Before updating to the latest version of the SMS Software, here are a few things you should do first:
• Restart the device – Before updating to a new version of software, we recommend that you restart your computer, tablet or PDA device.
• Plug devices into the wall – If you’re using a laptop, Ag Leader MESA, Ag Leader Field PC, or other pda device, make sure that you have it plugged into the wall. This will ensure that your device does not lose power while installing the update or migrating data.
• Check In Projects – If you are an SMS Advanced user, all projects that have been “Checked Out” need to be checked back in. This can be done by going to the File menu and clicking Projects.
• Create a backup of your data – Creating backups ensures that you have a good starting point in the event that you have issues during migration or if you have other computer issues down the road. Backups can be created by going to the Services menu and clicking Backup/Restore Project(s).
