Upgrading the Process Designer

After you update your Process Center with a fix pack, refresh pack, or interim fix, you must update the Process Designer to the same level. To make the updates, download the Process Designer file again and run the installation. Only the fixes or changes are applied.


About this task
When you install the fix pack, refresh pack, or interim fix, the IBM Process Designer.zip file is also updated. You must download it and install the updated Process Designer to the directory where you already installed Process Designer.


Procedure

  1. Open the Process Center.

  2. Click the IBM Process Designer Download option.

  3. When you are prompted, save the IBM Process Designer.zip file to your file system. This file contains everything that you need to install and run IBM Process Designer. Depending on your network connection, the download might take several minutes to complete.

  4. Extract the contents of the IBM Process Designer.zip file to a temporary directory on your file system.

  5. Open a command window and change to the directory where you extracted the contents of the IBM Process Designer.zip file.


    Important: If you are running Microsoft Windows 7, Windows Vista, or Windows Server 2008, right-click on the command prompt and select Run as administrator.

  6. Run one of the following commands to update the Process Designer. Use the same command that you used to install the Process Designer.
    • Default location (C:\IBM\ProcessDesigner\v8.0)
      • installProcessDesigner_admin.bat
      • installProcessDesigner_nonadmin.bat

    • Different location
      • installProcessDesigner_admin.bat install_location 
      • installProcessDesigner_nonadmin.bat install_location

      If the location has spaces in the directory name, put the whole location in quotation marks. The following examples show how to install to a different location.
      • installProcessDesigner_admin.bat D:\IBM\PD
      • installProcessDesigner_admin.bat "D:\Process Designer\"
Results
IBM Process Designer is updated. Only the fixes or changes are applied.

Installation messages are recorded in the %TEMP%\IBMProcessDesignerInstall.log file, where the %TEMP% variable is typically set to C:\Documents and Settings\current_user_name\Local Settings\Temp.


Fix pack install verification

For upgrades of installations with existing profiles, refer to the Identifying profile update errors section under the Profile upgrade tab for details on verifying the fix pack installation.
