Need help with manage installation k1000

Hi Ninjas! :)

I need help with manage installation in k1000.

So I want to do a update on a program that already exists in k1000 but it doesn't seems to work.
I am not able to uninstall the existing program in k1000 because I only need to do a update on the software.

So is it possible to do a update on a existing software in k1000 with a manage installation?

If you absolutely NEED to uninstall one version before installing another you will have to create a script. You might be able to use the wizard in "Configuration Policy" for a removal job, otherwise you can do both uninstall and install in a single script job.

Yes, you can use a managed install to push out a software update, assuming that you have an update package. I have done this in the past using the same procedure that I use for creating any managed install:
1. Install the software on a test machine
2. Force inventory on test machine
3. Find new software title in machine's inventory
4. Upload installer to software title
5. Create managed install based on software title
