  1. Restore or re-extract The Raiser's Edge 7.9x Install folder/files to the location they resided in when the update was performed, and then install the patch.  (If you downloaded the update from our Blackbaud.com website and extracted the RE79x.exe files to the desktop of the server, then you would re-extract the installation package to the same location again.) As an alternate solution, you can re-download the RE79x.exe from Blackbaud.com, extract the RE79x.exe installation package, re-run setup.exe on the server again, and then install the patch.
