2. In Projetex 9 Server Administrator window go to "Database Server" tab and click "Stop Server" button.

3. Install Projetex Workstation.

4. Start Firebird Server again before launching Projetex Workstation. To do so please repeat step 1. After this click "Start Server" button to start Firebird Server.
