infoRouter Live Update is a tool that downloads a catalog of the latest versions of infoRouter components. The same catalog is created for your instance of infoRouter.

The two catalogs are then compared to come up with the differences. The latest versions of the infoRouter components are then downloaded and installed on your server.

You may run Live Update as many times as you would like. Even in cases where a Live Update may fail due to network or connectivity errors, when run again, Live Update will pick up from where it left off.

To run Live Update, simply launch the IRLiveUpdateXX.exe (where XX is the current major release level).

This program is located in the root of the infoRouter application directory.
(C:/infoRouter/IRLiveUpdate80.exe)

Please make sure to run a backup of your database, warehouse and application directory before you run Live Update. It is always a good idea to stop IIS to prevent access from users while Live Update is running.

The average Live Update only takes a couple of minutes to run.
