Systems that had Uniface Anywhere 18.104.22.16862 or earlier installed on them and were later upgraded to a later release of version 5 and eventually to version 6, can be confronted with a pop-up message
and in the Uniface Anywhere Application log file will see the following message:
when starting the 'Uniface Anywhere Admin Console' on the Uniface Anywhere Host Console.
Switching to the Updates tab in the Admin console, the following 'Recommended' updates could be visible:
WARNING: DO NOT HIT / USE THE INSTALL BUTTON !!!!
If an administrator attempts to install the Host update through the Admin Console, it will fail to install, but some files will be installed. Thereafter, sessions will not start and the Admin Console won’t run.If the administrator installs the Web update, the install will succeed and place the GO-Global Web files on the system.To correct the situation see the Remedy below.
Although not enabled in version 5, development has been starting the work on the automatic updates of the Uniface Anywhere Host. For this some settings are created in the hostproperties.xml file with 'test' defaults.When updating Uniface versions, the hostproperties.xml file will not be rewritten, as it contains settings that need to be saved when updating or upgrading the UA product.With version 6, when the automatic update is enabled in the product, the 'test' default of the 'UpdateURL' is not updated to the correct location for Uniface Anywhere. Which leads to the download of msi files that are NOT valid for Uniface Anywhere product.Installing these msi files will corrupt the Uniface Anywhere product to the point that it will not work anymore.
If the above mentioned updates have been (tried to be) installed, Uniface Anywhere will have to be uninstalled and re-installed directly with the new version 6.
If these updates are NOT installed, the following procedure could prevent reinstalling of the complete product and will set the updates to be downloaded from the correct location.
