Restoring the Previous OfficeScan Server Version

The restoration procedure for the OfficeScan server requires that administrators uninstall the Apex One 2019 server, reinstall the older server version, manually stop Windows services, update the system registry, and replace Apex One server files in the Apex One installation directory.
