Patch Fix

Run a patch fix installation to access updates to the current version of Automation Anywhere.


Ensure that the most recent base version of the patch fix is installed. For example, before upgrading to Version patch, install Version 11.3.1.

If you have updated any binaries in the installation folder, then replace them with original binaries before upgrading to a new patch.

Verify the following during the patch upgrade:

Standalone mode Cluster mode
Enterprise Clients are disconnected and none of the local schedule will run on the Enterprise Client or from the Control Room. Enterprise Clients are not disconnected and both types of schedules are run.
Downtime for the Enterprise Clients and the Control Room before the patch upgrade is required.

No downtime is required but have a minimal load on the Control Room servers at the time of the patch upgrade, which means:

  • All the Enterprise Clients are connected.
  • No upload or download activity from Enterprise Client to Control Room can occur.
  • A minimum number or no schedules are run from the Control Room
Must re-login to all the Enterprise Clients after patch upgrade to continue with business as usual. The Enterprise Clients are connected during patch upgrade so relogin is not required.


  1. Perform a backup.
  2. Run the 11.x patch setup in Run as Administrator mode.
  3. In the Welcome screen, click Update.
  4. Click Finish.
  5. Verify that the Control Room is properly installed using the Postupgrade checklist.
