WorldShip 2019 includes enhanced database security features that are compliant with Microsoft® Group Policy. We encourage you to upgrade your workgroup (LAN) configuration as soon as possible to take advantage of this improvement.
When upgrading your workgroup configuration to WorldShip 2019, please ensure that you upgrade the Administrator Workstation first, and then upgrade all Remote Workstations. Older versions of the Remote Workstation will not work with the upgraded version of the Administrator Workstation. Both the Administrator Workstation and Remote Workstation(s) must run the same version of WorldShip.
Due to security enhancements in WorldShip 2019, the Remote Workstation will no longer automatically prompt your users to upgrade. If a user attempts to use an older version of the Remote Workstation after the Administrator Workstation is upgraded, a message will be displayed saying there has been an error connecting to the database. This error can be resolved by upgrading the Remote Workstation to WorldShip 2019.
WorldShip 2019 Remote Workstation Upgrade Process
To begin the upgrade of the Remote Workstation, open the WorldShip shared directory (shared network drive location) from the Remote Workstation and run the WorldShip 2019 setup application. If you prefer, you may also start the upgrade using the WorldShip 2019 DVD or web download.
Data security is very important to UPS, and we know it is important to your company too. Microsoft® no longer supports versions of its Windows operating system older than Windows 7. Computers running those unsupported versions might become more vulnerable to security risks and viruses*. Therefore, after August 31, 2018 UPS will no longer accept WorldShip data transmissions from computers running operating systems older than Windows 7.
We recommend you check all of your computers on which WorldShip is installed and ensure they are running Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, or Windows 10. If not, an upgrade to your operating system will be necessary. Any WorldShip installation on a computer running an older version of Windows (XP, Vista, etc.) will become unable to produce valid UPS shipping labels after August 31, 2018.
WorldShip Backup and Install Process
If you are upgrading your operating system or are moving your WorldShip installation to a new computer, we recommend you install the latest version of WorldShip. In addition to performance and security benefits, WorldShip 2019 provides access to all the latest UPS products and services. These instructions explain how to back up your data and complete the installation:
