WebFOCUS Visual Discovery Analyst Edition (AE) Version 6.1 is a new track, which requires a fresh installation. As a result, any previous versions of WebFOCUS Visual Discovery AE must be completely uninstalled.
Note: The WebFOCUS Visual Discovery AE installer does not prevent an upgrade existing installation option from being selected. As a result, unsupported issues can occur, since the installer attempts to automatically perform an uninstallation and reinstallation.
When uninstalling WebFOCUS Visual Discovery AE Version 5.9, any files that have been added, modified, or customized since the original installation will be left behind. Nevertheless, it is recommended to create a backup of these files beforehand. Examples of these files include any projects saved in the WebFOCUS Visual Discovery AE Workbench, projects published to the WebFOCUS Visual Discovery AE Server, or changes to the web.config properties file. Once the installation of WebFOCUS Visual Discovery AE Version 6.1 is complete, all of the backed up files can be returned. Files that were modified or customized, such as the web.config properties file, would require any changes to be manually reapplied to the new instance of that file.
The following are important considerations:
Expand Internet Information Services, Web Management Tools, and ensure IIS Management Scripts and Tools is selected. Click OK.
If this option is not set, then an error message indicating Could not load file or assembly or a similar error message may be displayed.
