I would like to push update a developed application in BES 4.1.4 but having some problem.
I have different versions, say 3.1.1, 3.1.2 and 3.1.3. For a user, he installed v.3.1.2 on desktop manager. And I have a new v.3.1.3, we wants to push it from BES. I indexed the alx and cod and added into software configuration. However, it can't update (delete old version & install new version) the application automatically. The user needs to delete the application manually on desktop manager (or on the device) first, then the BES can push and install the application on the device.
How can BES update automatically, instead of delete the old version manually?

BES 4.1.x does not have the ability to update software through software configurations. You would essentially have to create an app control policy to disallow the previous version, then force the new version on.
BES 5.0 handles software configurations in a radically new (and ultimately easier) way, allowing you to do software upgrades pretty seamlessly.

How should I disallow the old version application?
And if I have any new new version, say version 3.1.5, I must disallow all old versions 3.1.1 to 3.1.4?
Also in BES 5.0, do I also need to set disallow for the old versions?
