Just wondered: when you update through MVAMS does anyone uninstall module first or does everyone install update over present installed?
Thanks
Neil.

For the T-38A, I built in a routine to clear out old files first so an uninstall is not necessary.

Thanks Jonathan, excuse my ignorance but how do you do that? BTW I have tended to install over but I do get an ‘unhandled Exception’ warning notice, sometimes two, but I’ve learnt to click ‘ignore’ as it doesn’t seem to bother the installation.

With the T-38s, simply install over. The uninstall routine is automatically part of the install routine. Just make sure there are no MVAMS.exe instances left in your task manager processes list once the installer is open, but not installing yet.
