  • The updated SIMCA-online Web Client 15.0.1

Technical details

SIMCA-online 15.0.1 cannot be installed in parallel with SIMCA-online 15.0.0. Running the installation on a system with 15.0.0 will update that installation to 15.0.1. The same installation files can also be used to install 15.0.1 from scratch.

This update introduces changes in both server and client components. For this reason we recommend that both client and server are updated to 15.0.1 to take advantage of the new features and fixes.

This patch does not require a new license, 15.0 licenses are valid.

Also see SIMCA and SIMCA-online compatibility issues for information about which versions of SIMCA 15 are recommended.

Learn more about the SIMCA-online 15.0 release, including information about system requirements and licensing. All information in that article apply to 15.0.1 as well. 


The setup program can be used to install the full 15.0.1 product, or install over an existing 15.0.0 installation. In the latter case it replaces the old installation completely.

To update an existing installation, use the following steps on the server computer:

  1. Stop the SIMCA-online Server 15.0 service and close any running clients and the server monitor on that computer. Take a note of the service credentials used for the SIMCA-online Server in the Services control panel. You need to restore the credentials in step 3 since the setup program doesn’t migrate them
  2. Run the setup program and follow the instructions on screen. This will replace the old installation with the updated 15.0.1 installation
  3. Reconfigure the service credentials with the settings from step 1
  4. Start the SIMCA-online Server service again

Update all client pc installations to 15.0.1 by running the setup program, so that they can connect to the server.
