Title: Upgrading & Troubleshooting NicTool
Post by: matt on January 11, 2012, 02:52:47 am
Before upgrading NicTool, a good idea would be to test the new version yourself. There are three different test suites. The perl tests suites get run when "make test" is run in the NicToolServer or NicToolClient distribution directories.



The easiest way to test is simply to visit the NicTool demo install (http://www.nictool.com/demo/ (http://www.nictool.com/demo/)) . You can expect the demo nictool to always have the latest released version installed, and quite often it will have pre-release versions.
