I'm a user of Access Boss 2.x. How can I upgrade to version 3?

We recommend you the following scenario:

1. Install Access Boss 3 in a separate folder (\Program Files\Access Boss 3).

2. During the installation process, setup will detect the previous version and offer you to import old settings.

3. After the installation completes, uninstall the previous version of Access Boss

Never install Access Boss 3 into a folder where Access Boss 2 resides.

Which components should I select on "Select Components" page?

The choice of components depends on who will use the computer after the software installation

2. Supervisor (you) — you should select "Access Boss Control Panel".

3. Mixed usage — select Full installation — "Access Boss Control Panel", "Restriction Service", and "User Notifier" will be installed. You will be able to control time restrictions locally. You should also select Full installation if you have problems with remote control of Access Boss settings.
