Dear Sir/Madam

Currently i am running a PRTG Network Monitor version with license. Can I upgrade to version

What step I need to do? Direct download the exe file and run on top or need to uninstall first then only install the new version? Will the configuration be overwritten?

  • Log into you Paessler customer account at https://service.paessler.com/en/login
  • Download the latest version of PRTG
  • Install the latest version "over" the old version. There is no need to uninstall the old version.
  • Your configuration and monitoring data will be kept.

Of course, we always recommend you always have a proper backup of all of your data at any time.
