  • If you have any customized menus or toolbar settings on the HxGN SDx server, Server Manager now preserves those settings in the CustomMenus folder during the upgrade of HxGN SDx. The customized module files are not deleted, but should still be backed up before updating the site as part of a backup process.

  • All server connection settings and scopes information is now retained between regular update installation. Server connections are located in a file at: C:\ProgramData\SmartPlant\ServerConnections.xml.
