Smart Client REV C Update from REV B, Copying Smart Client Configuration
I have Smart Client REV B 188.8.131.52 Rollup 1 is it possible to update to REV C without losing data? I have Smart Client REV C installation media, can I use it to install on top of it without losing my data? or is there a particular update?
Moreover, how I should I copy all configuration,panel and workplace files to another server(which is redundant server) without problem?

The first two steps in the Release Notes, 2PAA113100-510 B, for upgrading from any older version of Smart Client to SC 2.2 Rev C., are to copy the existing configuration files from the current version. The manual details that items in the directory,
C:\Program Files (x86)\ABB Industrial IT\Operate IT\ABB Smart Client,
should be saved, and this can be either on the SC Server PC or a separate harddrive for future use. Once this information is saved, you should then remove the old version from the PC via the Control Panel>Programs & Features interface. Installation of the new version can then be executed and recovery of the previously saved data can be accomplished. No loss of SC Panel configuration will occur. Additional steps can be followed to accomplish the same functions for the Smart Client Excel Interface, if it is installed.
The removal of the original version of Smart Client does not affect any other software on the Smart Client Server.
