Important Notes

  • 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 and 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 also note 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 2019 or upgrade an earlier SQL installation to 2019 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).
