Hi Don,

I do not think that iSphere is the problem. Most likely you will get "Cannot perform operation" for whatever plug-in you attempt to install.

What I would do is:

* Try to update iSphere with RDi, started with Administrator privileges.

If that does not work (every step with Administrator privileges):

* Start RDi with -clean option.
* Try to update iSphere.

If that does not work:

* Try to install another plug-in, e.g. iRPGUnit.

If that does not work:

* Let the updater window perform the suggested operations, may crash RDi at all so that you need to re-install it.
* Try to install iSphere

If that does not work:

* Re-install RDi.

Betreff: Re: [WDSCI-L] iSphere update

Hello Thomas,

I tried as you suggested and additionally selected "iSphere for RDi 8.0+
(Base Component) and had the same result.

So then I tried selecting all components and still received the same
result ...Cannot perform operation. Computing alternate solutions, may
take a while: 5/15 which after about 10 minutes or so completes.

Therefore would you suggest I un-install and the re-install ?

Did you really only check the following two options:

* iSphere Additions for RDi9.5+ (Recommended)
* iSphere Compare Filters for RDi 9.5+ (recommended)

That will not work, because you miss the "iSphere for RDi 8.0+ (Base
Component)". This plug-in is the base component for all other optional
plug-ins. Please notice that the description of this plug-in shows "RDi
8.0+", which means this plug-in is compatible with RDi 8.0 and higher

You should always select all "iSphere" plug-ins that are already
installed in RDi when updating iSphere to a new version.

If you want to get rid of an iSphere plug-in, then you need to uninstall
iSphere and re-install it with the plug-ins that you want to have.

I am trying to update iSphere from 3.5.0r to 3.5.4r

I am using the update site

I select iSphere Additions for RDi9.5+ (Recommended)
and iSphere Compare Filters for RDi 9.5+ (recommended)

I then get a message;
Cannot perform operation. Computing alternate solutions, may take a
5/15 which after about 10 minutes or so completes.

But the solutions detail list that is shown indicates;

Java development tools

quite a long list which concerns me - I expected to see just iSphere

Can someone advise if I am doing this correctly please.
