Adding an updated Webworks SDK to an existing .NET plug-in installation

I wasn't sure how easy this would be, so I tried it and it was simple enough.  For my own future reference, and for anyone else wondering about it, here are the steps I took:


1. Remove existing Webworks SDK installation.  Go to Control Panel | Add/Remove Programs.  Note the location of the existing installation ( I searched on "Webworks SDK" to find it).  My installation was located at C:\Program Files\Research In Motion\BlackBerry WebWorks Packager .   This is necessary to confirm the upgrade is installed in the same location as the version you've removed.


  2. Install the new SDK to the location noted above.  In my case this was the default location the installer selected.


  3.  Run an app in the simulator of your choice to ensure everything works.


Note:  The plug-in informed me there was an updated version of the SDK, but it did not provide with a means of installing it.
