First off, thank you for this helpful tutorial. It's nice to have lots of screenshots walking you through the process of how to do the upgrade.

One thing that I think would be beneficial for customers to know on this too is what to do if your license serial doesn't show Symantec Encryption Desktop 10.3 on the FileConnect site. This is because the new 3.3 product requires a new serial number.

This is a different than the product/license key that is provided to you for installation of the product.

I would recommend calling Customer Care at that point and they will verify that you still have a valid software maintenance agreement and provide you with a new serial number to download the new 3.3 version.

Here is the phone number for customer care: 1-800-721-3934

Thank you for information about that. I used temporary serial key from  one of Symantec Ingeeners so I didnt use typical serial number to download update pacakage from fileconnect.
