IDEA update, no new installation

The security in my company not allow a automatic update function. I only can download the full installation from page. Now I want update from 12.0.1 to 12.0.3, but the setup create a new installation. Is there a chance to update a installation from the downloaded setup?

Thank You for help!

Hi Stefan,

What do you mean by 'the setup creates a new installation'? You can alsways download a tar.gz archive with IJ contents and overwrite your local files by the new ones.

It´s so simple? I dont need the setup? Thank You, I will check it now! :-)

AFAIR we bundle jre for windows distribution and tar.gz doesn't contain it, so, you can't use it at clean environment (or manual java setup might be necessary). But it definitely should work by overwriting files at old installation by those from the fresh archive.

I have extract the files from the "idea-12.0.3.exe" in a folder and replace the folder in the installationpath with the new folders and files? All folders or only "bin", "lib" for example? Sorry ... ;-)

'All folders' must work, not sure about minimum sufficient files set though, sorry.
