Installing new (v4.4) version is done by regular installation procedure described in the BizDataX Designer installation guide.
If needed, NuGet packages and dependencies need to be updated for Designer to work properly.
The update is done manually, and in addition to the main NuGet packages update, their dependecies must also be updated manually. The equivalent action is to uninstall and reinstall the required NuGet package where the dependencies will be pulled automatically.
Instructions on how to install NuGet packages can be found here.
To finish updating project to a new version, build the project.
If there are any errors, error analysis is built and errors need to be resolved either by independent work or seeking support from the BizDataX Team.
After a sucessfull build and resolving any potential errors, packages can be executed and validated. The process is described here.
