Re: Upgrading to BETA 4

I'm running on a Mac and I've installed Beta4 along side with Beta3 and I haven't had any issues with Cascades so far (i.e. building and deploying existing beta3 apps work fine)

Re: Upgrading to BETA 4

So the exact procedure for Mac OSX 10 is as follows:


1) Simply install the BETA 4 without uninstalling anything. This will install the new SDK and tools alongside the old ones.

2) Start Momentics and open its preferences. Click on the QNX node and make sure you select the latest SDK. This option is available from the drop-down menu on the toolbar as well, but if you go to preferences you can actually see the paths where SDKs are stored so that you can at some point remove the old ones if you wish.


Screenshot attached.


I assume that the procedure is similar for Windows machines.

Re: Upgrading to BETA 4

I did'nt remove Beta3 and installed Beta 4 to another directory. Loading the old Workspace created with Beta3 worked so far. I only needed to change the SDK -version in the IDE to 1101.

I think its important to start the installer as Administrator.

OS: Windows Vista (oh yes, i know...) 64.
