Update Pack FAQs

  • An Update Pack adds new features and is an accumulation of patches that have been tested together for compatibility.
  • Previously released point patches and cumulative patches that were posted to Wind River Online Support are obsolete as standalone patches if the applicable defect is listed in the Defects or Description sections on this page.
  • The highest-version Update Pack includes the cumulative patches from all previous Update Packs and Service Packs.
  • The difference between Service Packs and Update Packs is that Update Packs fix defects and add new features, whereas, Service Packs only fix defects. If noted, your Customer License and Product Activation File may need an update to unlock new features added by an Update Pack. If the directions indicate new keys are needed, contact your Wind River representative or request the update online at
  • Applying an Update Pack provides more reliability and compatibility than applying point patches.

Step 1 - Prepare

  • Shut down all product processes, including any license servers.
  • If you have altered any Wind River-supplied files in your installation tree (not a recommended practice), archive them manually before installing any updates, as these files may be overwritten during the installation process.

Step 2 - Download

  • Download all zip files to a temporary directory on your host computer (do not use a path with spaces in it).
  • For this Update Pack, do not download or unzip the files into your installDir/updates directory.

Step 3 - Unzip the DVD zip files

  • Unzip the DVD zip files to separate directories to create complete image directories:
  • On Windows (requires WinZip):
                 Right-click the zip file.
                 Select WinZip -> Extract to here.
