Offline update

To perform an offline update, you must first download the setup and copy it to the kenaflow computer.

Here you will find the setup:

https://kenaflow.blob.core.windows.net/release-3-0/kenaflow.latest.zip

Extract the ZIP file to any folder.

Close the following programs that interact with kenaflow:

Also, make sure that no other user who was or is logged on to the kenaflow computer is currently running these processes. You can check this via PowerShell or via the Windows Task Manager.

Open a command line (cmd.exe) with elevated privileges ('Run as Administrator') and change to the directory to which you have unzipped the ZIP. Do not start the setup from a PowerShell command line because the installer will search for running powershell.exe processes.

In the command line, start the following command and replace <target folder> with the directory containing the kenaflow instance to be updated.

kenaflow.install.exe --installupdate -d "<target-folder>"
  1. The update process starts. This can take a while. Before binaries can be installed the updated kenaflow instance need to shutdown. This happens automatically.

The preferd way is to create a sub folder in the kenaflow program folder named update-<new-version-number> where <new-version-number> is the number of the next kenaflow version. This number looks like this: "4.0.1". - Unzip the downloaded update file to this folder. Then open cmd.exe ("as Administrator") and switch to the update folder. Then simply run kenaflow.install.exe --installupdate.

After setup kenaflow will not start automatically by itself. But if you configured Automatic Execution it will (re)start as configured.
