Once the actual upgrade is in progress a progress bar monitors the progress. Some serial port emulation drivers don’t provide correct progress information, causing the progress bar to complete before the upgrade is completed. A receiver upgrade can take up to several minutes so please leave the tool untouched until it finishes its process. Once the upgrade is done, the receiver is rebooted and will resume normal operation. In case of a failure an error dialog with the failure message will be shown.

After upgrading the user gets the Change Connection dialog to reconnect to the receiver.
