How to update CapaInstaller


 Click here to expand...

Plan Upgrade

When planning an update of CapaInstaller we recommend the following actions.

  1. You should plan on running the update procedure in a service window where the system load is low and where downtime for CapaInstaller services will have a small or no impact.
  2. Be prepared to either have CapaInstaller Security enabled and run the update as a member of the System Administrators group or to run it as a member of the CapaInstaller Administrator group. If these security requirements are not met you will not be able to patch CapaInstaller.

  3. During installation or update of Capainstaller please observe if an antivirus utility locks one or more files when they are being copied to the server. If so, it can be necessary to disable the virus protection during the update process.

Run the Setup.

If you are updating an existing installation with a new minor build, just run the setup, and it will prompt you to download the latest version.

Click update to start the update process.

Select Remove downloaded files to clean up the downloaded files (C:\Program Files\Common Files\CapaInstaller\Setup)

After setup has completed patching of CapaInstaller, verify that the patched plug-in has been updated by starting the CapaInstaller Console.

Go to the Help menu and click About.

Verify that the version of the patched plug-ins equals the version number stated in the patch release notes.
