updating old versions of software with PDQ's package library?
so our environment has a large number of computers running multiple different versions of various programs that we install through PDQ's package library.
For example, we use the Java packages provided by PDQ to deploy to new PC's etc.
over the last few years, however, we have build up a number of workstations running very old versions of Java:
I want to create a schedule in PDQ Deploy that checks all workstations for out of date versions of various core apps we deploy with the PDQ packages so that they always stay up to date.
What is the best way to update all these old versions to the latest version of Java?
Is it simply a case of just deploying the latest Java package to these machines?
I would have thought not becuase looking at the steps for the latest Java 10 package, it only looks for the previous latest version of that current release of Java so it seems to only look for versions of Java 10 that are older than the current package. Nowhere does it say it looks for older versions.
Would I just need to create a separate package that uninstalls java, regardless of which version and then run that before running the latest Java package?
