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.
