How to Upgrade Virtual TimeClock

Upgrading Virtual TimeClock to version 16 is quick and easy (see what's new in version 16 here). A user with average computer skills can complete an upgrade of Virtual TimeClock Basic or Pro in about 10 minutes. Virtual TimeClock Network Edition users should plan for an additional few minutes to upgrade each client computer that is running the Virtual TimeClock software.

We have an easy-to-follow Upgrade Guide for each edition of Virtual TimeClock. All of the guides have two simple steps:
  1. Make sure you have an appropiate license installed for the upgrade.
  2. Download and run the appropriate installer for your upgrade.

That's all there is to it!  We always preserve your data and settings during an upgrade. As a precaution, the software will automatically prompt you to backup your data if the upgrade needs to modify the database.

Determine the correct Upgrade Guide for your edition as follows:
  1. Launch your currently installed version of Virtual TimeClock.
  2. ​Select About Virtual TimeClock menu within the app.
    (In the Help menu on Windows PC, Virtual TimeClock menu on a Mac)
  3. Find your edition listed below (Network, Pro, or Basic) and select your appropriate upgrade guide: 
Network Edition

Using the short, easy-to-follow guide will ensure a smooth upgrade of your Virtual TimeClock software. Contact us if you have questions or require assistance with your upgrade.
