Ridom SeqSphere+

Software Update to Version 10


The update to version 10 requires to update the CLIENT and the SERVER software. The installation of both updates requires administration rights on the computer(s) where the client and server are running. If only the server software is updated users can still login but will receive a warning and some new features will not work. The same happens if only the client software is updated,

On Windows the update must be installed by downloading and executing the Windows installers below. The execution of the installers requires administration rights on the computer.
On Linux the update must be installed by removing (or renaming) the whole installation directory and replace it with the new one from tgz archive files below.

When the SeqSphere+ Client on Windows is started for the first time after updating, a dialog with an update for the Windows Subsystem for Linux will be shown. This update is optional for most users, it provides minor version updates for MOB-Suite and CGE MobileElementFinder. If the ONT Data Assembly Module is used, the WSL update is mandatory and for the Long-read Data Plasmid Transmission Analysis Module it is highly recommended.
