Frequently Asked Questions

Q.       How do I upgrade from the release candidate to the RTM?

A.       We recommend that you re-run the packaging process of the MED-V image using the latest MED-V Workspace Packager. You can then deploy the updated Host Agent and MED-V workspace to computers in your production environment.

If you have already deployed the MED-V workspace and would like to upgrade the MED-V software, run the MED-V Host.exe package on the Windows 7 machines. This exe will upgrade the components in the MED-V workspace.

A.      If you have existing Professional incidents or a Premier contract, please call the regular number for support.

Premier support, call number 800-936-3100 or 425-454-7946 and provide your Support Account Number and password.  This will connect you with a Premier Customer Support Representative.
