Description

List of Upgrade Configurations

Use this list to define one or more configurations that specify how your upgrade should detect earlier versions of the product that need to be updated.

By default, this list shows a Default Upgrade Configuration item.

To manage the items in this list:

  • To add a new configuration, click the Add button next to the list.
  • To view or edit the settings for a particular configuration, select the configuration and then review and modify the settings below the list as needed.
  • To remove an existing configuration, select it in the list, and then click the Delete button.

Criterion for Detecting Which Products to Upgrade

Select the code that you want the current upgrade configuration to target. Available options are:

  • Products that Share My Upgrade Code?The installer searches target systems for the presence of a product that has the same upgrade code.
  • Products that Share My Product Code?The installer searches target systems for the presence of a product that has the same product code.


?If the product code option is selected, the following check box is available:

  • Product Code for Earlier Version Does Not Match that of the Current Project?The installer searches target systems for the presence of a product that has a different product code that you specify. If you select this option, ensure that you use the Product Code of the Earlier Version box to indicate the product code for which you want the installer to search.
?

The upgrade code is listed in the Upgrades view on the Project page of a project.

The product code is listed in the General Settings view on the Project page of a project.

To learn more about selecting an option for this setting, see Detecting Installed Earlier Versions that Need to Be Updated.

Range of Product Versions to Upgrade

Enter a range of version numbers that you want the current upgrade configuration to target.

The range of version numbers for the upgrade configuration must be lower than the version number of the upgrade. That is, the range of version numbers must be less than the version number that you specify in the General Settings view on the Project page of the current project.


Additional Information

In the .com.zerog.registry.xml registry file, the Product Code is referred to as product _id and Upgrade Code is referred to as upgrade_id.
