Hey everyone,

 

This forum post is to announce that the team is aware of a minor issue arising in some Patch Manager Plus servers and it has been resolved. Below are the details:

Steps to deploy Patches:

 

If you need to uninstall dependency products :

  • Next, deploy the Tableau Prep Builder uninstallation patches (PatchIDs: 109617 and 109618)

 

If you don't need to uninstall dependency products, you can deploy Tableau Prep Builder uninstallation patches directly (PatchIDs: 109617 and 109618)
