Customers who plan to upgrade from an existing GM installation to SE1 DVD should first make sure that the Pre-SE1_DVD Content Update package has been applied on their GM installation. This package is required before an upgrade is performed, and was released on January 05, 2011.
SE1 features Content Updates Include:
- Installation and upgrade fixes: This release addresses a number of installation issues, as well as resolve uninstall and upgrade issues, resulting in a smoother and more stable and error-free installation process.
- Improved licensing experience: Enhancements have been made to the licensing procedures to provide a smoother installation experience and more automated license registration. In most cases, licenses will be known to the CA TD license server by the time the users download the software and receive their license keys, avoiding wait times in license validation and installation failures. In those cases when customers receive the software and license keys sooner, the installation will be able to proceed without license validation, rather than terminate as was previously reported and the validation will be done automatically for the user in the background.
- Integration of pre-requisites check utility into the installer: The pre-requisites check tool, which was previously a standalone utility, has been integrated into the installer. This allows built-in checking for hardware and software pre-requisites at the beginning of the installation, and lets the user correct any detected configuration problems before proceeding with the installation.
- Inclusion of previous and new fixes: The new DVD release includes all fixes previously included in the November Content Update (SE1 CU, build 202), and fixes of additional issues reported since then.
Important: Customers who plan to upgrade from an existing GM installation to SE1 DVD should first make sure that the Pre-SE1_DVD Content Update package has been applied on their GM installation.

To verify that it was downloaded and installed, check in the Content Update window that the version of the 'Client Agent' component is 188.8.131.52.
