Warning: It is not recommended to install, update, or use the Ghost software when using Remote Control software. You must be physically logged into the Ghost Console machine without the use of Remote Control software.

To obtain the latest updates for Symantec Ghost Solution Suite, run Live Update on the computer where the Ghost Console is installed.

To do this, click Help> Live Update.

Once the update is downloaded, a folder called “Symantec Ghost Update” will be placed on the desktop and the following message will appear:

“This update will upgrade your installation of Symantec Ghost Solution Suite to version 2.0.2. Due to the significance of the changes involved, the update will not be applied automatically. The update installer has been copied to a folder named “Symantec Ghost Update” on your desktop. You may run the update now, or double click the installer later when you are ready to upgrade. Do you wish to start the upgrade now?”

When you click Yes, the installation wizard appears and you can click Install to begin extracting the package. Once the package is extracted, you can navigate through the installation wizard to complete the update to the Ghost Console.

The latest Live Update will update your console from version 2.0.0.1502 or 2.0.1.1533 to version 2.0.2.1573.

Once the Ghost Console has been updated, the Ghost Clients can be updated to the same version by applying a "Refresh Configuration task" to them.

For more information about the changes included in this Live Update, see the document:
