Upgrade WPM Players on remote systems

As described in Configure WPM Players, the WPM Player has an "Enable automatic update" option. If enabled, the WPM Player service on a remote system is automatically updated when you launch the WPM Player and it detects a new version on the Orion server. If that option is not enabled, you'll be prompted to update the WPM Player the next time it runs. Either way, the new player retains all information and your current transactions begin to poll again.

You can also upgrade by navigating to Settings > WPM Settings > Manage Player Locations and clicking Download player.

Before upgrading the OS on a remote system that hosts a WPM Player to Windows 10 v.1607 or later, SolarWinds recommends backing up player configuration (*.config) files. Otherwise, Windows may overwrite those files when you upgrade.
