The following steps need to take place on the application server where the Blackbaud Management Console resides.

Close all applications running on the server and temporarily disable any anti-virus protection programs.

    • Create a folder named Deploy in the desired location (Default is C:\Program Files\Blackbaud\[product name]\)



       
    • Edit the Registry
      • The Raiser's Edge - HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Blackbaud\Raisers Edge\7.0

        • Double-click InstallSource and enter the path to the newly created deploy folder. (Ensure there is a \ on the trailing end)

         
      • The Financial Edge/The Education Edge - HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Blackbaud\The Financial Edge\7.0

        • Double-click AFN64InstallSource and InstallSource and enter the path to the newly created deploy folder. (Ensure there is a \ on the trailing end)


         
        • Open the Blackbaud Management Console and highlight the product for which the Deploy Kit is being updated


          • Click Manage Deploy Kit and click Next

             
          • Select the Repair option and click Next

             
          • Select whether to prompt the user for the install path or to install to a specific path on each workstation.
            The latter option requires that the specified directory be present on each computer in order to install or update correctly.

             
          • Click Next

             
          • Browse to the Install folder of the downloaded (and unzipped) update file or the installation/update CD

             
          • Click Repair

             
          • If a patch was previously applied, rerun the patch installation.
