    1. If upgrading from a 7.8.x Order Routing FIX Adapter to a 7.17.x or 7.18.x FIX Adapter version with more than one FIX client user that is configured with a Synthetic SE gateway login, all previously submitted staged orders must be deleted and each FIX client user must be configured with the same direct trader Synthetic SE gateway login prior to upgrading. Additionally, each X_TRADERĀ® user that shares the order book with those FIX client users must be configured with the same direct trader Synthetic SE gateway login.

    3. If your current FIX Adapter is 32-bit running on a 64-bit operating system and you would like to upgrade to the 64-bit FIX Adapter, you must uninstall your existing version and perform a clean install of the 64-bit version.
