I have 2 version 4 standard licenses that I would like to upgrade to version 5 professional. How do I go about doing that ?

|On the checkout page you see the 'Upgrade' button.|
That is to upgrade FROM ANY version TO ANY version. So upgrading from v4 standard (or even older) to v5 Pro is all the same price.

|So. If you didn't do it already.|
First make a backup using v4 (bottom left corner of the menu bar)
Then download and install v5 and then, using v5, restore the backup you made.
If both users are sharing the same database on a network/shared folder then you can do the same in v5 but note that there's an additional 'Data' folder in the shared folder path. here's a copy of the page that explains that clearly (note the Data folder)
When you do a normal install of MiniMRP it usually installs in the folder:-
Note: On an older 32bit computer the folder name does not include the '(x86)' text.
In the MiniMRP folder you see a file named "MiniMRP" (or MiniMRP.exe) as well as the "\Data\" folder containing the data file "MRP5DATA".
There may be other support files but they're not important.
On your network server or other shared drive - such as network attached storage - create a folder that all users can share with read/write access and then copy the MiniMRP program and the \Data\ folder into that shared network folder.
Complete a full install of the software on each user's computer but then edit the user's desktop shortcut to 'point' to the file MINIMRP.EXE in the shared folder.
When the user clicks that edited shortcut it will launch the program from the shared folder.
The file MRP5DATA contains your data so if you've already been using the software, perhaps during your trial period, then you might like to copy that data file into the shared Data folder so that all users can immediately start using your existing data.
