You can currently obtain 2 different types of update packages for OPS SQL.
The difference between them is how they are used to patch the existing versions of the OPS SQL software :
- self-update package
This type of package is meant to be downloaded from the support area of the website, extracted by running it, and then uploaded to the OPS SQL database by using OPS Server Setup. Based on MIN_x_VERSION setting of the OPS SQL Admin Console, the different pieces of OPS SQL will auto patch themselves from the OPS SQL database.

- zip package
This type is essentially meant to be downloaded from the support area of the website, and extracted so that the files inside of the package dirrectly overwrite the existing files of the version of OPS SQL that you are attempting to patch. If the product you are trying to patch this way is running, it must be stopped before you can overwrite its files.
