    1. Dear Godwin,

      Good day to you,

      In regards to your inquiry, if you're using Ingress MySQL and already updated to version, kindly make sure that you run the DBinstaller before you relaunch the software

      To Run Ingress DB Installer : Close Ingress software > go to Start > All Program > FingerTec Ingress > Ingress DB Installer > Key In MySQL password > Test Connection > Update Connection > Upgrade Database.

      Remark:The server date and release date in the DBinstaller should be 20170605 [ refer]. If it still show the previous date [ old Ingress version ], you might be facing issue with the attendance as the date of the database still do not updated yet with the existing Ingress version.

  2. I have five that I want to hard reset. I need help
