Release Notes

Requested install/update operations from the Nodinite Install and Update tool are provided by an API with the following default address:


This API uses by default Port 8000.

You should not change these default values and IF you do so you must manually revert changes after updates since the installer will reset these settings to default

About multiple instances

In a distributed environment where different Nodinite Core Services are installed on different Windows servers, you must install the Nodinite Update Service locally on each of these servers.

NOTE: You must always use the same version of the Nodinite Update Service on all Nodinite servers. The Nodinite Install and Update tool will refuse to perform update operations whenever different versions are detected


If you encounter problems installing and/or updating Nodinite the Nodinite Update Service writes debug and diagnostic information to the rolling log files where being installed (default C:\Program Files\Nodinite\Nodinite Update\Update Service).

Please provide these files to our support if you fail to solve the problem at hand by yourself.
