Hi Mitchell,

We currently run ESET PROTECT (Server), Version 8.0 (8.0.1258.0) in our network, but haven't received any notifications within the Web Console regarding upgrading to version 8.0.19.

01 - Should we wait until the upgrade notification appears in the Web Console, or could up manually upgrade to 80.19?

02 - If we can manually upgrade to 8.0.19, is it an "in-place" upgrade, or will it prompt for all questions to be answered/completed as similar to a "initial / clean" install?

Hi Lennox,

Based on your version numbers, you already running latest. There is a difference in the version numbers (Server / webconsole and installer)

Latest versions (shown in ESET PROTECT - Help - About):

ESET PROTECT (Server), Version 8.0 (8.0.1258.0)
ESET PROTECT (Web Console), Version 8.0 (

8.0.19 is the version of the all in one installer of ESET PROTECT.

Kind regards,
