Creating Handheld Application Upgrade Kits to Remotely Deploy Patch Files
NOTE: This step is optional. Additionally, you must have a license for Siebel Anywhere to remotely distribute patches to end users.
You may use Siebel Anywhere upgrade kits to remotely distribute self-extracting zip files to your end users' PCs. You can use self-extracting zip files to create new directories and immediately extract files into the directories. Create one upgrade kit for each of the following:
- Create the Siebel Mobile Web Client upgrade kit (Siebel Client Revisions).
Create a single, self-extracting zip file that includes the upgraded .exe and .dll files in the Siebel Root\client\BIN directory on the model Mobile Web Client. Contact Siebel Technical Support to obtain the list of files to include. Configure the zip file to self-extract in the Siebel Root\client\BIN directory on the end user's Mobile Web Client.
- Create the Siebel Handheld upgrade kit (Siebel Client Revisions).
Create a self-extracting zip file that includes the files in the Siebel Root\SWEApp\cepatch directory on the server. Configure the zip file to self-extract in the \client\cepatch directory on the end user's Mobile Web Client.
- Create any other upgrade kits as needed (for example, the Siebel Customer Repository File).
Refer to Siebel Anywhere Administration Guide for information on creating upgrade kits.
NOTE: If there are read-only files on the Mobile Web Client, the end user may need to change the file attributes to read-write before receiving and installing the upgrade kits. Contact Siebel Technical Support for the list of files whose attributes need to be changed. You may use Siebel Anywhere to distribute a batch script that makes this change.
