How to do a same version instance upgrade

Contents[Hide]

1. Overview

This article shows you how to do a same version instance upgrade. To do this two steps are needed: update the deployment application config, and restart the deployment application. Once the steps are finished, same version instance upgrade will be allowed through the deployment application.

2. Modifying the Dundas Application Config File

In order to do a same version instance upgrade the deployment application config needs to be modified. To do this, edit the Dundas.BI.Deployment.Application.exe.config file located in the root on of the deployment application installation directory. By default, this would be located here:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Dundas Data Visualization Inc\Dundas BI\Setup\{major}.{minor}\Dundas.BI.Deployment.Application.exe.config

Add the highlighted xml below to this config file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<configuration>
  <appSettings>
    <!-- *************** XML to add *************** -->
    <add key="AllowSameVersionUpgrades" value="true" />

  </appSettings>
    <startup> 
        <supportedRuntime version="v4.0" sku=".NETFramework,Version=v4.5.1"/>
    </startup>
</configuration>

3. Start the Deployment Application

After the modification of the config file, restart the deployment application. By default, this would be located the following:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Dundas Data Visualization Inc\Dundas BI\Setup\{major}.{minor}\Dundas.BI.Deployment.Application.exe

The select an instance to upgrade screen should allow any version to be selected.

Select an instance to upgrade for any version.
Select an instance to upgrade for any version.

Note
After upgrading the deployment application, the config file will need to be modified again if you want same version instance upgrades.
