Performing minor updates on a Windows based WAPT Server


In the case you choose to use a GPO to upgrade the WAPT agent, the WAPT Server must be excluded from the OU where the GPO will apply.


The WAPT Server may be installed on 64bit Windows 7 and Windows 10 clients, and 64 bit Windows Server 2008/R2, 2012/R2 and 2016.2, 2012/R2, 2016 and 2019.

  • on the Windows machine hosting the WAPT Server, download the latest version of the installer from Tranquil IT’s website WAPTServerSetup.exe and launch it as Local Administrator;
  • install the update;


The procedure to follow is the same as the one for installing a WAPT Server on Windows .


The prefix must not be changed and you must not generate a new key!

  • on the workstation that you use to build your packages, manually download WAPTSetup from

  • then create the WAPT agent:

    You will have to keep the same prefix for your packages and change nothing in relation to the private key/ public certificate pair!

    This will generate a waptupgrade package in the private repository.


    There are two methods for deploying the updates:

    • using a GPO and waptdeploy;
    • using a waptupgrade package and deploy it using WAPT;
  • update the WAPT agents

The steps to follow to update WAPT agents are the same as the ones to first install the WAPT agents.

Download and install the latest version of the WAPT agent by visiting http://wapt.mydomain.lan/wapt/waptagent.exe.

As mentioned above, this procedure may be made automatic with a GPO or a waptupgrade package.
