Installing additional components to previously installed products
You can add components and subcomponents to existing OpenEdge and later installations without entering any data other than the required components or subcomponents. In earlier Progress versions it is necessary to reinstall Progress and execute the "Custom Install" setup type; these steps are no longer necessary with this Add feature.
To add components or subcomponents to a previously installed product:
1. Choose Start > All Programs > OpenEdge > Add Components. The Products List dialog box appears:
All previously installed products appear on the Products List.
2. From the Products List, select the product to which you want to add components or subcomponents.
3. Choose Component to add components or subcomponents to the already installed product. The Components List dialog box appears:
Only components and subcomponents that have not been previously installed appear in the Components List dialog box.
4. Select the components and subcomponents you want to add.
5. Repeat Step 2 through Step 4, as needed.
6. Choose Next.
7. Choose Finish to update the existing install.
Note: If a system file in a newly added component or subcomponent is locked or busy during installation, a Reboot dialog box appears to prompt you to reboot your system.
