Hotfixes Packaged Into Executable + Cumulative for Cireson Portal

Working onsite with my customers, I’ve noticed that Cireson hotfix process is open [prone] to human error.  The hotfixes should be packaged into an executable that includes cumulative versions.  One mistake in backing up/copying or not using correct upgrade path results in major downtime.

    Agreed, the hotfix process is very error prone.

    We struggled with this as well (8 portals load balanced). I ended up developing a simple powershell script that extracts the files from a zip and copies them in-place into the Cireson install folder. Only pre-condition is you need to create a zip (see line 7) that only contains the files to patch. You'll need to author your own .zip file from your hotfix files (I've attached a screenshot of what the 5.0 zip file looks like in winzip for reference).

    I've attached the script in case anyone wants to re-use it. It works just fine with 4.0.10 as well as 5.0.5.

    Having both options available would be great. An option to download the source files and an option to download the executable.

    In the age where applications handle their own updates and cloud services where I never see an upgrade, any enhancement to the manual upgrade process is a good one.
