Reverting to a previous install configuration

As you install, upgrade, and uninstall software into your system, configuration snapshots are kept in a history. Reverting to a previous configuration allows you to back out of the results of an unsuccessful install, upgrade, or uninstall. To revert to a saved configuration:

  1. Select Help > Software Updates ... and click on the Installed Software page.
  2. Click Revert Configuration....
  3. You will be shown a list of previously saved configurations. Selecting each configuration will show you what was installed in that configuration. When you have found the configuration to which you want to revert, click Finish.
  4. Click Yes when asked to exit and restart the Workbench for the changes to take effect.
  5. When you restart, you should see that the Installed Software page list matches the configuration that you chose.
