7 Replacing the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Tools Release Component

The JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Applications Release 9.1/Tools Release 9.1 Standalone Client is shipped with a specific release of the Tools component, for example, 9.1. (The Tools component of the Standalone Client is also known as "system" or "foundation" code.) You can determine this particular release by examining the contents of this file:


If Global Customer Support instructs you to update the Tools component to a newer release, follow the instructions in this chapter.


Because you are replacing files that the Standalone Client installer uses, you will need to either copy the installer from a DVD to a hard drive or download the installer from Oracle Software Delivery Cloud. Follow the instructions in the section Downloading from the Oracle Software Delivery Cloud Site.

For the following instructions, it is assumed that the folder where the Standalone Client installer resides is:


  • To Replace the Tools component

  1. If EnterpriseOne is running, stop it.

  2. Use Task Manager to verify these processes are stopped:

    • activConsole.exe

    • jdenet_n.exe

    If either or both of these processes are running, either wait for them to finish or kill them via Task Manager.

  3. Download the appropriate Tools Release WINCLIENT from the Update Center. The download is transferred to your machine as a .par file. This file may be opened with the standard 7-Zip or WinZip program.


    Improper Unzipping. You should not open the .par file by double clicking on it. It is a self-extracting file that is normally installed on a deployment server. If you double-click on it, it will assume that your workstation is a deployment server and attempt to install it in an incompatible manner.
  4. Open the .par file with 7-Zip or WinZip.

  5. Inside the .par file are multiple .CAB files in the Disk1\System folder. The files are called SystemX.CAB where X is either nonexistent or a whole number. Extract these .CAB files into the "system" folder where you placed the temporary installation directory (for example, \Standalone_9.10\system).

  6. You can either:

    1. Deinstall the existing Standalone Client and reinstall using the new foundation, or

    2. Backup the existing system directory and reinstall the Standalone Client in the same Oracle Home path.

    If you are backing up your existing system directory in your installed Standalone Client, simply rename the system directory. For example, rename C:\JDEdwards\E910\system to C:\JDEdwards\E910\system_old.


    Unable to Rename. If Microsoft Windows does not allow you to rename the directory, one or more running java.exe processes may have the directory locked. In this case, either reboot your machine or use Microsoft Windows Task Manager to kill the java.exe process(es).
  7. Follow the instructions in Section 4.4, "Installing the EnterpriseOne Client".

  8. After reinstalling the client, it is best to clear the cache in your browser using these browser-dependent procedures:

    Microsoft Internet Explorer

    1. Go to Tools > Internet Options.

    2. On the General tab, click the Delete Files... button.

    3. Click the OK button.

    4. Click the OK button.

    5. Exit Internet Explorer.

    Mozilla Firefox

    1. Go to Tools > Options.

    2. On the Network tab and in the Cache section, click the Clear Now button.

    3. Click the OK button.

    4. Exit Mozilla Firefox.

  9. Launch EnterpriseOne by following the instructions in the section of this guide entitled: Chapter 5, "Starting the Standalone Client".
