Other and cosmetic changes
Mirasys VMS V9 is only available as a 64-bit version! A V9 Master Server (Management Server) can handle 32-bit V6 and V7 networked servers, as well as 64-bit V7, V8 and V9 servers.
Mirasys VMS V7.3 and later releases require Microsoft SQL Server Express or SQL Server Standard (or better) version 2014, when installing the system Master Server, or if the network VMS Servers use Mirasys VCA. Please note also that SQL Server 2014 requires .NET 3.5. And on Windows versions after Windows 7, .NET 3.5 must be turned on (enabled) in Control Panel as a Windows feature (not installed with a separate .NET 3.5 installer)!
The "Full" Installer will automatically install the SQL Server Express 2014, or upgrade an earlier SQL installation to 2014 on 64-bit systems. A 32-bit (x86) SQL Server Express 2008 version will not be upgraded to the 64-bit (x64) SQL Server Express 2014. Update SQL manually before updating from an old 32-bit V7 to the latest 64-bit version!
The old "Spotter Mobile" does not support Apple iOS 11, or later versions, on Apple iPhone or iPad devices. Use the newer "Spotter Seven", instead (requires Mirasys VMS V7, or later).
V9 VCA is not supported in virtual environments
Mirasys VMS V7 End-of-Life date is 31st of March 2021
Windows 2012 Server R2
Windows 10 IOT/Pro
Windows Server 2016
Windows Server 2019
Notes on Upgrading to V9
All earlier versions can be upgraded to V9. New version types Base, Pro, Enterprise and Enterprise Plus will help to reach different market segments. Version 9 also contain a new user interface for the VCA configuration inside the System Manager. Most VCA settings from V7 or V8 to V9 will be automatically converted but have to be reviewed.
