How to Upgrade

To gain access to the new Mikogo soft­ware tomorrow, we recom­mend our users do the following:

1. Unin­stall Previous Mikogo Version
We first recom­mend that you unin­stall your previous version of Mikogo. Before you do this be sure to first close your current Mikogo version, by clicking on the system tray M icon and selec­ting Exit.

Unin­stall Mikogo by opening the Start Menu and loca­ting under Mikogo from within Programs.

On Vista, this will prompt a User Account Control window informing you that uninstall.exe is about to run. Please select “Allow”.
A window will then pop-up asking you to confirm the unin­stal­la­tion. Click “Yes” and the “Unin­stal­la­tion completed successfully” window will appear.

2. Down­load and Install Mikogo v2.0.1
Down­load the new version by clicking here. A window will appear asking you to open Mikogo-Starter.exe.

Once you have down­loaded and saved it, double-click on the Mikogo Starter file to install Mikogo v2.0.1.

On Vista this will prompt a User Account Control window, asking for your permis­sion to start the Mikogo Starter Program. Please click “Continue”.

A quick instal­la­tion will take place. This is very fast and will finish with an M icon on your desktop, the Mikogo welcome screen, and finally the system tray M icon will appear with a noti­fi­ca­tion window above.
