Installing and Updating FieldGenius

Getting FieldGenius set up and updated is a simple yet essential step to keep things running smoothly with the latest bug fixes and drivers. But, before you get going, it’s good to do a quick check on a couple of things. 

1. When does the maintenance on your license expire? You will only be able to put on the update with a release date before the expiration of your maintenance. 

2. Ensure that you have a way to either copy the file to the data collector or ensure it is connected to the internet to download the file directly. 

Finding the Latest Version of FieldGenius

Discovering the latest FieldGenius for Windows versions is a breeze with two convenient options. Firstly, our newsletter is your go-to source for immediate updates on FieldGenius Windows, Android, and Hemisphere. To stay updated, simply request access to our newsletter by using the ‘Contact Support’ feature located in the top right corner of this web page.

Alternatively, the MicroSurvey Help Desk Website houses a comprehensive archive of all MicroSurvey software versions (MSCAD, STAR*NET, FieldGenius and more). Access this repository by clicking the button below.

Once the site has been accessed, locate the latest version of the software. Once located, select the latest version download link. The file will start downloading immediately. 

Once download, ensure the file is copied or on the data collector. From here on out, we will be on the Android data collector in order to perform the installation.
