Web AS 6.40 upgrade to SP11 - Patches of patches

Former Member

Can anyone explain what I should do If I find that one of the patches seems to have been patched itself?

Do I apply the latest patch of the patch and ignore previous versions or do I need to apply them in cronological order?

e.g. When applying SP11 I find that for SP11 there seem to be 2 relevant files:

-TREX 6.1 SP11 (252087kb)

-TREX 6.1 SP11 Patch2 (103582Kb)

The fact that the second patch is smaller than the first implies to me that I might need to apply both of them, rather than the second being a fixed version of the first.

I forgot to mention that my example was regarding upgrading TREX from SP9 to SP11 only.
