Auto-update client from 3.1 to 3.2

Ok so I upgraded from OES sp1 to sp2 via the pre-install script and red
carpet, the upgrade seemed succesful. I logged in to iManger as the
documentation says and installed the plugins. Restarted Tomcat.
Logged back in to iManager, connected to my "system" and it says that te
iFolder version was 3.2.XXXX, so I'm thinking ok upgrade successful.
Then i logged out of my iFolder 3.1 windows client so I could log back
in and get the upgrade as documented. I log back in and nothing, exit,
etc... nothing, can't make the auto upgrade work.
Took a look at /opt/novell/ifolder3/web/update/windows/version.config the
file is default nothing set. Can some one help tell me what their config
looks like....

*** Any ideas in general on what may be going on???

Thanks in advance,

BOB

After reviewing the comments specified in the version.config file, here
are the exact steps I took to get it to work:

1 - Copy the latest version of the Windows iFolder client included in
the ifolder3-welcome RPM to the windows update directory

cp
/var/opt/novell/tomcat4/webapps/welcome/ifolder3-client/ifolder3-windows.exe
/opt/novell/ifolder3/web/update/windows/ifolder3-3.2.5437-windows.exe

2 - Then I modified the version.config adding the iFolder version
(3.2.5437) and the windows install file name
(ifolder3-3.2.5437-windows.exe). Below is what my version.config looked
like after making the changes:

<!-- File used to control updates of the windows ifolder client application
If the specified version is greater than the ifolder version on the
client, the user will be prompted to upgrade their ifolder application
with the one specified here by 'filename'. -->
<versioninfo>

<!-- Put Version string here. Should be in the format of
Major Version.Minor Version.Build Version.Revision
Example: <version>1.0.1817.29628</version> -->
<version>3.2.5347</version>

<!-- Put name of windows ifolder client application file
to be upgraded here. The specified file must be in
the update/windows directory.
Example: <filename>ifolder3-3.0.20051203-1-setup.exe</filename> -->
<filename>ifolder3-3.2.5437-windows.exe</filename>

</versioninfo>

After saving the version.config, logging into the server with the
Windows iFolder 3.1 client prompted the user to update their iFolder
software.
