    Beta to RC Upgrade:

    Hi all - this is a simple question for those who know the answer...

    I have just had the message pop-up saying I have 3 days left to upgrade to the RC - I have found the instructions on the MSDN Blog for how to upgrade from the beta to the RC by editing the cversion.ini file but their example has different numbers so I wanted to check before continueing:

    do I just change it to 7100 and 7000 like the example has?

    Thanks,
    Dave

    You'll need to change it to an earlier or equal version to the one you've got, so I guess 7.077 at least.

    No idea if it'll work after that though. Let me know if it does as I have to upgrade my own soon.

    I have completed this process on two machines this weekend.

    I simply changed the MinClient= to 6999

    This worked on both machines without a hitch.

    You're not upgrading a server, so it doesn't really matter.

    Yes did not alter miniserver

    You just have to have miniclient at a lower number than the version you are upgrading.

    The beta was version 7000 so I set miniclient to 6999.

    Well I'm back and it worked fine - about 2 hours to run the upgrade... about double-four time that of the fresh install
