Updating Applications

InstallShield 2013

Installing upgrades for applications is a much more common operation than installing the original release of an application. This makes creating effective, reliable upgrades a very important task.

“Updating Applications” provides solid background information on the different types of upgrades and also clears up common misconceptions about patching. It helps you determine the best upgrade solution for your product and guides you through the steps of creating upgrades, patches, QuickPatch projects, differential releases, and full releases. In addition, this section explains how you can use FlexNet Connect to notify end users that a new version of your product is ready for release.
