Upgrade Notes

  • You can upgrade to the latest version of Nessus from any previously supported version.
  • If your upgrade path skips versions of Nessus, Tenable recommends reviewing the release notes for all skipped versions to learn about new features and bug fixes.
  • Tenable.io-linked scanners receive the latest software update starting one week after the Nessus general availability (GA) date.

    • If you want your scanners to automatically update to the newest version prior to that date, set your Nessus Update Plan to Opt in to Early Access releases.
    • If you want to manually update your scanners to the latest version prior to that date, disable automatic updates so the scanner does not automatically downgrade to the previous version.
  • For Nessus 8.8.0 and later running on Windows, you must install Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015 on the host operating system. The following Windows versions require a minimum Service Pack to be installed:

    • Windows 7 SP1
    • Windows Server 2008 SP2
    • Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1
