Updating CVEDIA-RT


In versions before 2023.3.0, all created or edited instances were housed within the solution folders. However, as of version 2023.3.0, a change has been made to differentiate between "demo" instances and user instances. "Demo" instances remain within the solution folders, while user instances have been relocated to the instances folder.

For those looking to update their old instances to version 2023.3.0, you'll need to manually move them to the instances folder. Additionally, it's necessary to incorporate the solution ID within the JSON file of each instance. You can do this by adding the Solution property:

    "Solution": "Here goes the Solution ID",

To locate the solution ID, look for the SolutionId property in the base_config.json files in the solutions folder.


Based on the type of installation you are using: - Using Installer only: Uninstall the previous version and run the installer to install the new one. Your instances (C:\ProgramData\CVEDIA\CVEDIA-RT\files\instances) will not be removed during the uninstall process. - Using Installer after using ZIP: The installer is installing to: C:\ProgramData\CVEDIA\CVEDIA-RT directory. Therefore if you had RT installed elsewhere, you will need to copy RT_OLD\files\instances to C:\ProgramData\CVEDIA\CVEDIA-RT\files\instances. You can delete the old RT files then if not needed. - Using ZIP only: Extract the new version in a new folder and copy your instances from RT_OLD\files\instances to the new RT_DIR\files\instances.


ProgramData is a hidden folder. To access it, you can either enable Option: 'Show hidden files, folders and drives' or you can put the full path to the address bar (Ctrl+l).

Linux Docker

There are 2 ways to update on Linux:

1. Using the script

This script is designed to update both the container deployments and the redist bundle. It can update running instances with minimal downtime. This script will work in any Linux docker environment.

Run ./ --help to see the update options.

2. Manually

Alternatively, you can simply download the new redist package and extract it to an empty folder.

If you have custom solutions, you can place them in the solutions/ folder within this new folder. Due LUA API changes old solutions may not work.

You will have to move also your instances to the instances/ folder.

Calling ./ to execute CVEDIA-RT will not affect other existing installs.

Linux Debian Packages

  • If you added the CVEDIA-RT repo:

    sudo apt update                 # Update package list
    sudo apt install cvedia-rt -y   # Installs a newer version

  • If you use the debian package directly:

    dpkg -i cvedia-rt_20XX.X.X.deb

Cloud users

If you have CVEDIA-RT deployed in a cloud environment with containers, you need to pull the latest docker image and trigger a rolling update.

If you have custom solutions and instances, we recommend doing the update in a staging area first to avoid downtime.
