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

  1. If EnterpriseOne is running, stop it.

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

    • activConsole.exe

    • jdenet_n.exe

    • LaunchJVM.exe

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

  3. Rename the existing system folder in the location where you installed Standalone. For example:

    cd \E920_1

    rename system system_original


    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).
