Creating Handheld Application Upgrade Kits for Companion Synchronization PDA
This task is a step in Process of Installing the Siebel Handheld Application.
NOTE: This step is optional. Additionally, you must have a license for Siebel Anywhere to distribute patches to users.
You can use Siebel Anywhere upgrade kits to remotely distribute self-extracting zip files to your 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).
Navigate to the Siebel image location for the current software version such as
D:/Siebel_Install_Image/184.108.40.206, and then navigate to the patch directory. Configure the zip file to self-extract in the
\client\BIN directory on the user's Mobile Web Client.
- Create the Siebel Handheld application upgrade kit (Siebel Client Revisions).
Create a self-extracting zip file that includes the files in the
\SWEApp\cepatch directory on the server. Configure the zip file to self-extract in the
\client\cepatch directory on the user's Mobile Web Client.
- Create any other upgrade kits as needed (for example, the Siebel Customer Repository File).
See Siebel Anywhere Administration Guide for detailed information on creating upgrade kits.
NOTE: If there are read-only files on the Mobile Web Client, the user might 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 can use Siebel Anywhere to distribute a batch script that makes this change.
