Repository for updates like hotfixes.

Hi all! New question for you!

 

In our domain we have some installations of SAS 9.4 client and Enterprise Guide on Windows 7/8 desktops.

The auto update is disabled because user can't install updates and hotfix without being administrators.

I use the command sasdm.exe ‐silenthotfix ‐hotfixdir "C:\Downloads\HotFix" to install hotifixes by scripts and I download hotfixes here.

 

How can I install software updates (ex. Enterprise guide 7.11->7.13) on clients?

There is an update repository like hotfixes one?

 

Thank you all!!!

Hi,

Some information from Tech Sup:

You can upgrade EG clients either by running the SDW from a newer software order which enables the wizard’s update mode to install the EG client to the newer version or, with a software depot that contains the SAS Independent Installer for EG, run the .msi to upgrade the SAS EG release.

 

If this does not answer your question, please contact Tech Support.

 

Thanks

Anja

Hello @ManuelP

 

just a quick addition to @anja 's information. For the update part, ‐silenthotfix parameter could be your friend.
