Concerns Microsoft Windows Users only

If you downloaded the installer for the Silicon Software Runtime Release 5.6.1 before 22nd of January 2019 (installer number v5.6.1.75621) and intend to use release 5.6.1 on a Host PC running Microsoft Windows, there might occur problems when trying to uninstall this installation. It might happen that the complete Windows path variable is deleted during the uninstall process. This might lead to problems with your Windows installation.

Therefore, we recommend you proceed the following steps:

  1. If you downloaded the runtime installer available until 22nd of January 2019, but you have not run the installer yet:
    1. Don't run this installer.
    2. Delete this installer (installer number v5.6.1.75621).
    3. Download the patched installer from one of the links below (installer number v5.6.1.75854).
    4. Run the patched installer for installing Runtime 5.6.1 (installer number v5.6.1.75854).

  2. If you already installed RT 5.6.1 using the runtime installer available until 22nd of January 2019:
    1. Don't execute uninstall.exe to uninstall this runtime version.
    2. Delete the installation folder of Runtime 5.6.1 (for example, C:\Program Files\SiliconSoftware\Runtime5.6.1).
    3. Download the patched installer from one of the links below (installer number v5.6.1.75854).
    4. Run the patched installer (installer number v5.6.1.75854) for installing Runtime 5.6.1.

After proceeding the steps described above, you can savely work with Runtime version 5.6.1.
