upgrade to TC12 from TC11.x

I am currently having TC11.5 and wanted to upgrade it to TC12.

When i look at TC12 upgrade guide it says those who are at TC11.x don't need to upgrade but they need the patch.




But I am not able to get install folder for TC12, which needs to be copied to patch tem.bat


and then I started the patch without patching the tem.bat, below error has been encountered.

You can try using the install folder after combining and into Tc12.0.0.0_wntx64. Then leverage Tc12.0.0.0_wntx64\install however there is a LOT more content in that new directory than in your old Tc11.x. Either GTAC needs to release another method for patching or you really need to go through an upgrade. I would do an upgrade and consider the doc to be incorrect.

The upgrade guide states that we need to reference the install guide and the install guide states that we need the (for TEM) which was not delivered with Tc12. Time to call GTAC.

Note: I haven't moved to Tc12.0 yet so this is a guess.

Did you ever figure out the proper method to upgrade/patch TC11.X to TC12?

Hi, Actually TC 11.x to TC 12 is an upgrade and not the Patch. This is a typo from Siemens, we have upgrade it and it worked.
