Upgrading TTM or Guardian

Overview

Upgrading any TT application automatically upgrades the TTM component.

Note

If the 32-bit TT application is installed, you can only upgrade to another 32-bit version of the application. If the 64-bit TT application is installed, you can only upgrade to another 64-bit version of the application. To switch from the 32 bit application to a 64-but application, or vice-versa, uninstall and then reinstall the application.

If you attempt to install a 32-bit TT application when you have a 64-bit version of TTM already installed (or vice verse), a pop-up message will prompt you to either abort the application installation or skip just the TTM component installation.

Note

In TTM version 4.2.2 and later, you can install the TTM Windows Service using command line arguments that override the TTM_HOME, TTM_CONFIG_FILE_PATH, and TTM_LOG_PATH environment variables. Refer to Installing TTM Using the Command Line Interface if needed.
