    Hello Rehan Butt,

    The upgrades are handled automatically, just replace the new project manager (Sitefinity.exe) with the older one, open it and press the Upgrade button. Next time your application runs, the upgrade will automatically take place and modify the database schema as well as the necessary files so that your system is up to date.

    For more information please visit our Installation and Administration guide.

    Thank you for contacting us and we look forward to receiving your highly appreciated feedback.

    Hi Rehan Butt,

    We are extensively testing the upgrade process and we are always supporting upgrades from official versions and from the latest internal release that we make available to you each week. You can safely copy your project and test it just to see whether there are any issues with it. We are treating such issues as bugs with severe importance.

    Please let me know whether you have experienced any problems with the upgrade from RC to RC2.

    Where can I find specific instructions on upgrading from one version of RC to another? In my project manager, the Upgrade button is disabled. Do I need to download and install the 500 MB msi file and install that again?

    Hello Rehan Butt,

    You can download only the RC2 project manager. This is a standalone .exe file with which you can replace the installed one. Then when you open it you will be able to upgrade projects created with older versions.

    Upgrading a site in this manner, however, does not replace any of the DLLs in the Program Files / Telerik / Sitefinity 4.0 / Libraries folder.

    Hello Lorne,

    Yes this upgrade will only replace the binaries in the bin folder of the website. If you wish to replace the assemblies from Libraries you will have to download the latest installation and run the installer.

    Kind regards,
