That is true for ACS, the client emulator package. But NOT the windows application specific package (the .net drivers, odbc drivers, etc).

The windows specific package is what I'm looking for updates on.

I hope we don't have to login to ESS to get updates. We never had to do that with IBM I Client Access (now discontinued).

Um, actually with the exception of the license agreement, you do get the entire package every time.

The way they have packaged the product there is no installation, drop the folder into the location of your choice and start using it. So the package comes with everything.

That way there is not the find/replace process that goes on inside the traditional installation manager. Removing the product is as easy as loading it, simply delete the folder.

His question (as I understand it) is where to find the updates. I can't imagine you have to download the complete installer from ESS every time there's an update.

Matt, if you go to the page Jim cites here, you will see what is in the product. ACS has always been basically 5250 and data transfer and spooled file viewing.

The OLE DB, .NET, and ODBC driver/provider stuff are in platform-specific packages - one for Windows and one for Linux. These are additional-cost items, IIRC.
