HI
Has anyone had any experience upgrading PVS from version 7.0 to 7.5 or 7.6
I plan to upgrade but although there is info on the edocs site no one has posted any step by step guides from their own experiences.
If anyone has any documentation that they could share on a step by step guide it would be greatly appreciated
Regards
Marcus

Pretty simple:

1.  Backup your database
2.  Uninstall all current PVS software
3.  Install new PVS software
4.  Now go through the pain of updating the target device software in your master image(s)

I use Hyper-V booting the VHD, uninstalling old software and installing the new stuff.
