New version of REXYGEN (2.50.8) is out and all users can upgrade for free. Follow the instructions below for upgrading from REXYGEN 2.50.7 or REX 2.50.x. If you are upgrading from obsolete REX 2.10.x, there is a separate guide for you.
In any case, it is recommended to backup the content of the /rex/rexcore directory on your target device prior to upgrading. If you do not know how to do it, don’t worry. In such a case the only thing you might need are the licensing keys and you can always find these in your user accout at licensing.rexygen.com.
It is highly recommended to upgrade both the development tools on your desktop/laptop PC and the runtime modules on your target device(s).
Install the newest version of development tools. Only Windows 7/8/10 is supported.
Version 2.50.8 allows you to connect to any 2.50.x device, therefore you can uninstall all versions 2.50.x.
It is highly recommended to upgrade your OS to the newest version.
ONLY IF you are running an up-to-date Debian Stretch based distribution of Linux (e.g. Raspbian Stretch) and want to upgrade only REXYGEN runtime module (RexCore) on your target device, follow the instructions below.
WARNING – Note that your running algorithms will be restarted during upgrade!

After installation is complete, your target device is running version 2.50.8 and is ready for use. Your licences are valid, check that the algorithm is running after the upgrade. If needed, just re-apply your licence key (SiteKey).
