Upgrading application via BES software configuration

Hi All

We are running BES 4.1.6

I have an application, Finance1, that was deployed to my users via a Software Configuration. The corresponding Application Control Policy Disposition setting was set to REQUIRED.

The vendor has brought out a new version of Finance1 (Finance2)  that I need to push out the Blackberry devices.

So, what I've done is created a new share on the BES (apparently you can't add multiple versions of the same application to a software configuration), index the files, created the software configuration and application control policy as before.

I'll push this client out to a few BB's that don't have either Finance1 or Finance2 first, just to see if there are any flaws with Finance2.

However, at some point, I may need to replace Finance1 on the BB devices with Finance2.

If I assign Finance 2's Software Configuration to devices with Finance1 already applied, would they uninstall in favour of Finance2, or would we have issues? Finance1 and Finance2 are just different versions of the same product.

Any ideas guys? Many thanks in advance.

There would be no issues, if it is the updated version of the same application it will just update that when u push that or the user updates the devices config
