I have to upgrade the patch level of SAPGUI 7.1 from patch 5 to patch 6

Patch 5 installation was done using the SAP installation guide with the following command line: NwSapSetup.exe /Package="MY INSTALL" /nodlg

My question is, can i just go further and upgrade it to patch 6 using the new sources files and the same comamnd line? or do i have to do something else like uninstall it first?

Can i just upgrade it using the same method i did for first install?

Many thanks,

Just to make myself a bit more clear.

I installed SAP7.1 patch 5 using the sap deployment method mentionned earlier

Now, i only have the whole installation sources files of SAP 7.1 patch 6
How would you patch SAP from 5 to 6 with the whole sources files?

Many thanks,

There are several methods of doing this. Since 7.10 compilation 2, there is a SAP Automatic Workstation Update feature included; check the documentation for its use. You can also have the update enabled at the Front-End side by enabeling the update-check at the SAP-Logon for each user. This will check the installationserver for newer versions.
Easiest would be to just run the command "NWSAPSetup.exe /UPDATE /silent" from the patched installationserver on the targetted client, just like an original installation.
