Upgrade is available for vCloud Air plug-in 1.0.1 and later versions, which are installed in vSphere Web Client 5.5 Update 1 or Update 2.

In vSphere Web Client 5.5 Update 1 or Update 2, whenever an update is available for the vCloud Air plug-in, it is displayed in the plug-in's Getting Started page, under Basic Tasks. You can see the version that is currently installed, whether it is up-to-date, and whether an update is available for you to download. You always upgrade to the latest version of the plug-in.

Only the latest update available is displayed. Regardless of whether you miss an update, you upgrade to the latest version. For example, if you have version 1.5.1 installed, when version 1.6.0 is available, it will appear on the Getting Started page. Regardless of whether you install version 1.6.0, when version 1.7.0 is available, only version 1.7.0 will be listed and available for upgrade.

Note

You cannot upgrade from version 1.0.0. Upgrade is only available for versions 1.0.1 and later that are installed in vSphere Web Client 5.5 Update 1 or Update 2.

If you installed version 1.0.0 of the plug-in in vSphere Web Client 5.5 and then upgraded vSphere Web Client 5.5 to 5.5 Update 1 or Update 2, the plug-in continues to appear after the upgrade. You will see two icons in the Home page and two entries in the navigation pane, one for the old plug-in and the other for the installer that appears by default in the update releases. However, version 1.0.0 of the plug-in is incompatible with vSphere Web Client 5.5 Update 1 and later. You must first uninstall the 1.0.0 version from the vSphere Web Client using the script provided with the 1.0.0 version, and then install the current version of the plug-in using the installer in the Home page. See Uninstalling vCloud Air Plug-in 1.0.0 for more information.
