Internal Service Release updates are fairly straight forward. Before upgrading I would recommend using the latest QlikView Desktop applicaton to test all of your documents in normal and web view modes. If your documents are OK. On the Server, stop all of the QlikView Services. Backup C:\Programdata\Qliktech, and your mounted folders. With the services still stopped, execute the new QlikView 10 SR3 Server insallation program. The Install will prompt you if you want to upgrade the server, respond with a yes. The upgrade will then automatically upgrade all of your previously installed components. Once finished, reboot the server or restart your services. For the Clients, you will need to uninstall the previously installed versions before reinstalling the QV10 SR3 Desktop Client. If you use the IE Plugin, this too should be uninstalled and replaced with the newest SR3 Plugin.
I am about to upgrade Version 10 to SR3 and was reading your reply to the question above and wanted to calrify something. Are you saying that you do not need to uninstall the server before installing the upgrade?
From the instructions provided by Qlikview in the Server manual it says 'Upgrading to a new release of Qlikview Server will generally require an uninstall of the old release and install of the new release'.
Those instructions are vague as it says 'will generally require'. I am trying to understand when the uninstall is and is not required.
Since QlikView 10 you only typically need to manually uninstall the software
when upgrading between major releases, ie QV9 - QV10. If you are performing
an internally service release update in release QV10, ie QV10 - QV10 SR1 or
QV10 - QV10 SR3, the just stopping the QlikView services will suffice and
the update will upgrade what you have previously installed.
