Why the PG5 2.1, 2.2 or 2.3 update manger application is no more working and it’s not possible to download files from PG5 update manager server?

FAQ #102020

Due of security reasons, we were forced to change the location of the PG5 Update manager server from:
the old PG5 Update manager server: http://update.sbc-support.ch
to a new PG5 Update manager server: https://update.saia-pcd.com

Detail information:

The url to access the PG5 update manager server is hardcoded in the PG5 update manager application running on your PC and all PG5 update manager applications with versions < access the old server, where all version >= access the new server.

All available PG5 and Firmware updates for PG5 2.1, 2.2 and 2.3 are now stored on the new server https://update.saia-pcd.com

On the old server http://update.sbc-support.ch there is ‘only’ an update of the PG5 update manager application.

Until the old server is running, then all access from PG5 update manager application (with version < of PG5 2.1, 2.2 and 2.3 will point to the old PG5 update manager server and will allow the user to download the new PG5 update manager application.

But it could be, that in the future the old PG5 update manager server is no more available and this fact could lead to the situation, that some PG5 2.1, 2.2 or 2.3 versions are no more able to access to the new PG5 update manager server because the PG5 update manager application on the PC was not updated to a PG5 update manager application with version >=


Error description:

Uninstall all update managers of PG5 2.1, 2.2 and 2.3.
