5. Open Windows Task Manager, switch to the Processes tab and wait until the following processes have completed:

ADCR.exe
EventManager.exe
FSCR.exe
Sqlcr.exe
CRVM.exe
SCCR.exe

6. Run the installation package.

7. Click Install.

8. Follow the instructions of the setup wizard.

9. Re-enable Audited Systems that were disabled in step #3

NOTE: When upgrading from Netwrix Auditor 5.0.80 and below, do not change the program installation path on the Installation Folder step of the wizard, otherwise your current configuration may be lost.

NOTE: If upgrading to 6.5 in order to eventually migrate to version 7.0 or 7.1, please allow 6.5 to run for 24 hours before upgrading.  This is to allow the audit archive files to be in the format necessary for the further migration.
