PDQ Deploy and Inventory
My applications were working fine about a month ago. Now every time I attempt to open the application from my desktop it tries to open but never does. I thought maybe something was blocking it, but it wasn't. or maybe a recent windows update.
At this point, I think I'm going to just install a new version.
Question is, if I install a newer version of deploy/Inventory will I lose all my saved data. My database? Will it corrupt my database/
or will it all update with the install?
Currently running vs 126.96.36.199
Latest version now 188.8.131.52.
Thank you !
You will not lose your data. Deploy and Inventory keep all of their data when they update. Also, they create a backup of the database during the update. If the update doesn't help, I recommend reaching out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
So I attempted to run the install, and during the backing up stage I got the following error.
"Database Access Failure" There was a problem accessing the PDQ Deploy database. The even log is full
Is your hard drive full? If it's not, do you have your Event Log configured to "Do not overwrite events"? The default is "Overwrite events as needed".
Event Viewer --> Windows Logs --> right-click on Applications --> Properties
Outstanding! So the update worked. My drive was full, I deleted all the event viewer logs and I went ahead into properties and set to "Do not overwrite events" I was able to log in and still see my setup.
Now, before I had enterprise mode, now that I have updated it to the latest version. It says Free mode. How can I change it back to Enterprise mode. Do I need the license key?
I recommend setting it to "Overwrite events as needed". The error you mentioned in your last post made me think it might be set to "Do not overwrite events".
PDQ licenses have to be renewed yearly. The local features of the product keep working with an expired license until the next update. I recommend logging into your account at https://sales.pdq.com/CustomerLogon or contacting email@example.com.
