    Hello

    I'm almost ending a project development that includes MVC 2017.1.233 ( Feb 23 2017)
    If I just update to 2017.2.504 (May 4 2017) will I need to update the source code to make the application work with this new version ?
    Only the DLL should be updated?  js and css too?
    Best regards and tank you.

    Hello Sergio,

    When updating a project all of the source code files should be updated as well including scripts, styles and content(images, icons):

    Please have in mind that if the project is using the Visual studio IDE, the extension can be used for automatic update:

    Is there any way to retain the older version when updating? It always seems as if something goes awry when updating, so I'd like to keep the previous version in case of that.

    Yes the wizard makes a backup for you, but you can manually copy to the project folder to make your own backup.  Finally to make it work I've had to update manually finally because my project structure is not very conventional for an MVC app. Everything worked great after the manual update, no problems at all.

    Hello Joe,

    As Sergio suggested, the backup can be made automatically by the Update Wizard and manually.

    As the Wizard will have a checkbox for making a backup, we will advise to always make a backup with the Wizard and making a manual one can use for additional security.
