Updating ISTA

Hi all, as per the title I would like some help/information on updating my ISTA+4.04.12 to the latest version and also updating my ISTA/P from 3.61.0.500 to 3.61.4?
Is it a case of changing the psdzdata in both applications or is there more too it, please anyone that has any help would be much appreciated

ISTA+: downloading MSI plus delta files as well as using ILean license/ISTA Launcher to update.

ISTA-P: download *.istap & *.exe and executing the ladder.

Thank you for your reply
I have the links to the latest ISTA+ and the ISTA/P would I be better uninstalling the programs, then start again install latest versions?

My ISTA/D(+) is the Rheingold torrent as well as the ISTA p the same

If standalone, you delete and replay. If native, you just update.

Standalone is drag, drop, and run.

Native uses installer and you would find in Control Panel list of programs.

Yes I know in the dealer network that they were having issues which kept crashing the head units and had to be rectified with ISTA/P 3.61.4

I'm not 100% but I do believe my ISTA+ and ISTA/P to be the native version as it took some time setting up and has folders on my C/: drive..
Where do I find the updates and information to do said updates?

Sounds like Standalone.

ISTA+: all you do is run ISTA Launcher and it places everything as needed, including installing ICOM firmware.

You would also know whether you have Admin Client with Ilean license.

You can request latest in this thread: Where to download ISTA/D Rheingold?

After further looking into your correct it is the standalone version.. If I was to uninstall the ista/d and ista/p I currently have am I able to get the native versions from this forum with installation guides?

Native installs, at least with ISTA+, require an Admin license. You will not get that from this forum, but you can from others.

Advantage of native is ability to download smaller update files. Advantage of standalone is ability to run from anywhere, including secondary drives. Functionality is ultimately the same.
