Step 1: Backup your existing AlarmTraq folder (\Program Files\AlarmTraq\) to a safe location (desktop or temporary directory). Some files may need to be transferred back to the AlarmTraq folder later. These files may include custom logo files from the \Web folder, or email templates from the \Templates folder.

Step 2: Uninstall AlarmTraq using Windows Control Panel > Add/remove Programs.

Step 3: Download the full package (AlarmTraq.zip) from the downloads section of the Support Site located at http://www.reillytele.com/AlarmTraq/supportsite/.s

Step 4: Unzip the AlarmTraq.zip file to a temporary directory on your server. In this example we created a new folder in the root of the C drive named C:\AlarmTraqinstall\.
