Version 2010

Version 2009

Product History - 2009

If you are starting from a version prior to 5.392 you must get a version 6 stamp (one should be made for you already) and upgrade to the last version 6. This is actually version 80262, which is not really version 2008. Remember to stamp first — this will be the last time you have to stamp RPOWER. From this point on, RPOWER will ask for a site code. You need to know the site code, obviously. After this, you can upgrade directly to version 2009.

If you are starting from a version prior to 6.076 (but on or after 5.392), make sure you already have a version 2008 stamp made for you (you don't need the actual stamp itself). Then upgrade to version 80432 first (not 80463, which is the latest version 2008 — see below). Remember, you don't need a stamp to upgrade to version 2008 — RPOWER will ask for the site code. *After this, you can upgrade directly to version 2011.

If you are starting from a version later than 6.076, but prior to 9.0248 you will need to exit RPOWER on all workstations, download the appropriate RSETUPxxxxx.exe from and execute it.

If you are starting from version 9.0248 or later you may Update  RPOWER directy from System Maintenance.

Version 2008

Product History - 2008

This version can't update properly from older RPOWER's. If you are on a version prior to 80432 you need to update to version 80432 first. You can then use RPOWER itself to update to 80463.

A new version 2008 (-v801-) stamp is required! Or just call for a Site Code to license the software when prompted.

The previous version must be 5.392 (the latest version 5) or greater.

Also, a CreditLine version 3.03.15 or greater is required.

  • Install CreditLine on your CreditLine server computer. The installer will remove your CreditLine Server shortcuts. You must edit the workstation.ini file and add the line:


  • When CreditLine Manager runs, it may bring up Internet Explorer and prompt you to update the software. DO NOT DO THIS! Just close Internet Explorer!
  • If this is too complicated, call Mercury Payment Systems at (800) 846-4472 or Payment Processing, Inc. at (510) 795-2290 (or just click the link under Merchants: here) and get a competitive quote!
