Restoring a Login AM environment

While creating a backup the Login AM Updater will create zip files of the previous version in the Backups folder on the Login AM share.

This allows you to restore the Login AM software to the previous version using the Control Panel -> Programs -> Programs and Features dialog.

Alternatively you can start the appwiz.cpl from the start menu.

Depending on your choice, while updating and creating backups, the folder also may contain a backup of the last version of one or multiple environments, for example: 4ad9aa29-0fdb-4f1d-af29-3801404cff20.zip Backup of environment - dev
