As a best practice, consider logging in using a "system" or "admin" account on the machine for the upgrade process. By logging on using a different account, during the upgrade process you will preserve the user-specific configuration settings, for example, HLLAPI Shortname associations and other configuration values stored in the HKEY_CURRENT_USER section of the Windows Registry.
When you install EXTRA! X-treme 9.x, it detects and upgrades these earlier versions of EXTRA! automatically:
myEXTRA! Enterprise version 7.1 or higher
If, however, you want to choose a different User Data Location (for user configuration files) during setup, you should perform a manual upgrade so that you can retain your user configuration files. For more information, see KB 7021889.
If you are upgrading from EXTRA! Personal Client Version 6.x, see KB 7021890.
