MP1 installs on top of the original Excelsior JET 5.0, possibly with previous hotfixes applied. If you need to make a fresh installation, install Excelsior JET 5.0 first, cancel JET Setup, and apply MP1.
To update an existing Excelsior JET installation, launch the downloaded executable and follow the on-line prompts. Upon successful copying of Maintenance Pack files, JET Setup will launch automatically and apply the Maintenance Pack.
Installation of MP1 does obsolete your current profiles. You will have to refresh them before you may continue using Excelsior JET. Those profiles are backed up by JET Setup. If you rollback to the previous update level, they will be restored.
The procedure of profile refresh is as follows:
JET Setup is launched automatically upon successful installation of MP1. Select the profile that you want refreshed and click Refresh.
Run JET Setup to display the list of profiles:
- jetsetup -show-profiles
- Locate in the list the outdated profile(s) that you need to refresh and write down their numeric indexes.
For each profile index in your list, run JET Setup as follows:
- jetsetup -refresh-profile profile
where profile is the profile index.
To rollback to the previous update level, select Manage JET Updates in Excelsior JET Start Menu and click Undo.
Rollback does not remove the installed updates and associated profiles, so you can reapply MP1 later without installing it. Select Manage JET Updates and click Redo until it displays the current configuration as "jet-500-mp1".
Run JET Setup to display the list of installed updates:
- jetsetup -show-updates
Locate in the list the updates which you need to activate.
Then run JET Setup again as follows:
- jetsetup -activate-update list
where list is a colon-separated list of update names.
Display the list of profiles available for the new combination of updates:
- If necessary, create new profiles.
