It can be time consuming for some developers to update a large number of client software if their database is running interpreted because each client must be manually updated. However, when a new update of 4D v11 SQL becomes available, it is imperative that the developer be able to quickly deploy updates of 4D software.

This Technical Note and the accompanying scripts were developed by 4D, Inc. to help developers facilitate an efficient update of the 4D software (aka 4D in remote mode) on their machines.

Be careful because the "#" symbol denotes a comment in shell scripts on Mac OS. If you have this in your password or anywhere in your string it will cause a problem with the script generated by the Tech Note database.
