I inherited a situation with 2 Canon imagePRESS C1+ with server Q2. Due to vulnerabilities associated with the Operating System (Windows XPe) and the version of Firebird running on the servers, both are now disconnected from the network. The support company was contacted and they stated that there is no upgrade path for multifunction devices. If the server OS is upgraded to Windows 7 Enterprise, is there a way to upgrade the version of Firebird to 2.0.1 or later and still be able to use the Fiery software installed? The servers are running Fiery for iPR Server Q v 2.0 and Fiery User Software

Hi Hilário,

If patch 1-1CBKB5 is already installed, Q2 is running the latest version available to this server.
This patch was released 3 years ago, and includes firebird version1.5.6.5026

Unfortunately, beyond the patch mentioned by el_tren2003, the Server OS is not upgradeable - or rather, the System software on that server does not support upgrading the OS to Win7.

However, there is another model which supports the C1+ engine - called the imagePRESS Server Z1. Which does use Win 7.

Thanks... will pursue the Z1 option then.
