Always make sure to run installations and updates of Nodinite using the latest version of the installer; review the release notes for more information.

Release Notes

The Nodinite Install and Update Tool has an API. This API executes the requested install/update operations. The API has the following default address:


By default, this API uses Port 8000.

You should not change these default values. However, if you do so, you must manually revert to the changes after an Update since the installer will reset these settings to the default.

About multiple instances

In a distributed environment where different Nodinite Core Services run on other Windows servers, you must install the Nodinite Update Service locally on each of these servers.

You must always use the same version of the Nodinite Update Service on all Nodinite servers. The Nodinite Install and Update Tool refuse to perform update operations when different versions are in use.


If you encounter any problems installing and/or updating Nodinite, the Nodinite Update Service writes detailed debug and diagnostic information to the rolling log files where being installed (default C:\Program Files\Nodinite\Nodinite Update\Update Service).

Please provide these files to our support, if you fail to solve the problem.
