How to properly update Managed Installs
Question about updating Software for a Managed Installation. I’ve always followed the practice of:
- Install on test machine Or VM.
- Attach zip installer to the Inventoried Software Item
- Created NEW Managed Install
BUT now I notice (not sure how long this has been available) the option to uncheck Only display software with an associated file and associate and assign a file to a newer version. Update the name and the install string then run.
It seems to work. Kace doesn't appear to try and install the previous, older version and seems to show only the new version when inventoried in Installed Programs.
Is this just as effective?
