Overview

10/6/2008

After start up you will see the Sedomat System Updater main screen. The first line of the Info
field shows the currently installed Font. In the second line the System Software ID is shown.
On some controllers this information is missing, because of an older Bios version (see chapter
4.2 Manual System Selection).

Chapter 3: Updating System Software

After successful copying, the Checksum of the System Software is calculated:

If there is enough free space on internal disk storage the new System Software is copied
while keeping the current software and you will be prompted to activate the new System
Software:

The Checksum (CRC) is shipped along with the new system software and has to be compared
manually.
Do not activate the new System Software if the CRC is not matching! Otherwise the
controller may hang or crash on start up!
After activation of the new System Software you will see Update System Software done! Reboot System
If there is not enough free space on internal disk storage, the current system software is
overwritten on update. After update the checksum (CRC) is displayed in the Info field:

10/6/2008

Do not reboot the controller if the CRC is not matching! Download the System Software again or use last known good Software and repeat the Update.

Chapter 3: Updating System Software

Install/Uninstall Fonts
Since Sedomat System Version V1.7 the controller contains Fonts for Western languages
only, the System Updater provides a way to install an additional Font. Only one additional
Font can be installed.

3.3 Installing Fonts


If no Font is installed and the System Updater finds at least one valid Font file on the memory
stick, the button

is enabled. Pressing this button opens a Dialog with a list of Fonts found on the memory stick:

10/6/2008

If the Font is known, the language associated to this Font is shown instead of the Font file
name. Select the Font you want to install and Press Install Font.

SYSTEM).
Now the Install Font Button changes:

3.4 Uninstalling Font


If an additional Font is already installed, the Font associated language is shown in the Info
field and the button

be deleted after uninstall, the Button is disabled and the System must be rebooted to complete the uninstall process.
