3.1i Install - Do I need 3.1i-SP1 in order to install SP2? Do new SP versions include older versions?
Keywords: Service, Pack, version, install
General Description: Customer missed 3.1i-SP1 and is doesn't know whether he needs SP1 before installing SP2. Do newer versions include older versions? There is a register of issues addressed by the SP, but nowhere does it say if previous versions are included in the most recent SP version.
All latest Service Packs are inclusive of of the previous versions (i.e., SP2 includes SP1, SP3 includes SP2, etc.).
The latest SP will simply install itself over the previous SP without need for the removal of the previous version. Also, a previous version is not needed before the installation of a newer version, i.e. SP3 can be installed fresh, even if the customer has not installed SP1 and SP2.
