Automate Client upgrade from 7.0 to 7.5

How can you automate the ZAM Client upgrade from 7.0 to 7.5? If I run the setup.exe for 7.5 it generates an error saying a previous version was detected, please uninstall it first. I would have thought there would be some kind of upgrade switch.

Thanks

When you update the back end, the client should update on it's own from the server. Have you not updated the back end yet?

Yes sorry I just did some tests on a PC with the older client on and when it scans for inventory it updates the client at the same time.

Thanks

No need to be sorry, just glad it worked. Also, in case someone else happened upon this post, at least there will be a "fix" for them.
