How to Rollback Smartlaunch to the previous version
Rollback Smartlaunch Version
Smartlaunch version is increased all the time every time we released a new version. Important thing that you might not notice is that once the new released version is downloaded and applied in your Smartlaunch the system will automatically created a backup of the previous version and stored all those EXE files of Smartlaunch Server, Administrator, and Client in the Old Release folder, as default this folder located in: [Smartlaunch-Server-installation-directory]\Server\Data\Files\Old Releases.
