Re: Easy way to downgrade XPA runtime from 32a version to 31b?


Hi Steven

I guess you mean that you install on a test machine and then you just copy the folder to any machine you need Magic, right?

I remember, in Unipaas it was necessary to install it (or some registry entries related to image-opening would be missing).
No idea what registry entries are actually required for XPA 3

If you are just using regular C/S Magic (no brokers etc), then you can just replace the Magic folder (XPA 2 or earlier versions, not tried 3).
If you do, you probably not be able to ever uninstall it.

Installing in the 1st place was probably an unwise and unnecessary step. We never Install Magic on ANY machines that will run either Runtime or Studio, it just complicates things.

Hi magicians

A couple of months ago, being very optimistic, we upgraded our XPA desktop app on 40 windows tablets from 31b to 32a.
Now we are forced to revert back: the last 2 months many bugs have been found that are related to ver.32 only.
Sources are kept in old version so no problem in creating the new ECF.

The problem is that the tablets are spread all over the country and we need a quick way of downgrading Magic:
Maybe we can run some scripts to replace the runtime executables instead of remotely connecting to each tablet, uninstall and rerun installer?

Any ideas or previous experience?

Thanks in advance
