Power Monitoring Expert 8.0 - I upgraded from and earlier version of software and the 'Starting Services' step failed

If any of the ION Windows services have been disabled in the original PME installation, when the software is upgraded to PME 8, during the Configuration phase, the 'Starting Services' step will fail. This is not a fatal error. The rest of the configuration steps will be run. Even though the Installer reports 'Unsuccessful Configuration', the softwrea has been upgraded successfully and will function normally.

As an example, if the ION Event Watcher service has been disabled, this will happen.

As long as the flagged ION service can be started manually after the upgrade completes, the upgrade has been successful.
