Uninstall Hotfixes before installing an Update?
« on: June 13, 2007, 04:45:26 pm »
Hi,

I was looking through the documentation and I couldn't find an answer to this question.

Should I have uninstalled the hotfixes from 12.0.0 before I installed the update to 12.0.1?

I am currently running 12.0.1 but when I go to Help -> Produce Updates... -> List Installed Fixes, I see the text included below.

Also, if I now want to install the 12.0.1 hotfix, do I need to uninstall the 12.0.0 hotfix first?

Thanks.

Is there a way to uninstall hotfixes?  If so, I've never done it.

I've seen the same thing you have: a list of hotfixes from a previous version.  I just went ahead and installed the new hotfixes.  I haven't had any problems.

I'm not sure about the first question, except that it seems to be a good question and I'll be on the lookout for any related documentation TODO items. As for uninstalling a hot fix, that is in the docs: go to Help > Index and type "hot fix". I will paste the info here for your convenience.

Unloading Hot Fixes
To unload a hot fix, use the unload_hotfix command from the SlickEdit® command line. At the prompt, select the hot fix to unload and click OK.

CAUTION Unloading a hot fix will reload the original files distributed with the previously installed release of SlickEdit. If other hot fixes include the same file or are dependent on the unloaded files, SlickEdit may behave unpredictably. If more than one hot fix has been installed, you may need to reinstall the other hot fixes after removing one of them.
