Introduction

Unit 23 Software Installation Assignment 3 - Installation & Upgrade Training Manual D1: Justify a particular installation or upgrade. I have installed a Microsoft Visio because the user needed software that will allow him to design the layout of rooms, by using vector graphics. Using this software the user can design and build his room exactly how he wants. You can also design and organize a computer network in that room that you have designed earlier. It also allows you to make a hierarchy diagram which can be used to show what work is more imported and which one is less. I have been asked to install Microsoft Visio in Harvard University so that the IT technicians can design classrooms with computers, using this software will allow them to see what is the best way to place the computers and how to save as much of space as possible. Microsoft Visio will allow the university to see what the class will look like before the work takes place. I have upgraded to AVG 9.0 because it has more features then the previous version. This are: Identity Protection- It protects your computer when banking or shopping online by improving your current anti-virus software by shielding your passwords, credit card numbers, and all other private information from hackers. ...read more.

When you plan you need to know what the users wants, this will prevent from installing the wrong software that is not needed by the user. You need to know if the installation or upgrade is required this will prevent from installing 2 of the same software. Also you need to collect all the material and instruction need for the installation or upgrade this will prevent from you wasting your time looking for things like installation CD or product key if you have them ready before you do the installation. You also need to plan the suitable time to do the installation this will prevent you from disturbing the users work. You also plan the risk reduction measures this will prevent from any data lose in case something goes wrong. D2: Evaluate the risks involved in the installation or upgrade of software and explain how the risk could be minimised. When you upgrade or install new software the data that you have may be lost. This could be because when the software is upgrade the old version is deleted and the data connected to the software may be deleted as well. For example when you upgrade your operating system from Microsoft Windows XP to Microsoft Windows 7. ...read more.

Conclusion

For example Microsoft Office 2003 has a much different layout then Microsoft Office 2007 the for some people may have complications in finding the tools ect. in the newer version. To minimise this risk you need to know what the user wants. If he or she has problems with operating the new version then you could give them training. You could also give a presentation to the user and tell him or her what better features the new version has and how it can improve the user's work. The software that the user wants to upgrade or install may not work on the computer that the user is using, this can be because the hardware may be incompatible with the software. For example game like "Dragon Age: Origins" has very high system requirements and some hardware may not be able to open the game for example graphic card. To minimise the risk of incompatible hardware with the new software you should check the system requirements before you install or upgrade. If the system is not compatible with the requirements you will have to upgrade the hardware of your computer so it will meet the requirements. If you can't upgrade the hardware then you will have to look for different software with lower requirements. ?? ?? ?? ?? Camille Metkowski 20631 Page 1 ...read more.
