So I’m using a shiney new(ish) IMac at work, part time… I’ve still got my evil Windows machines in the background. I am going to try and do as much of my day to day work on the Mac though, so that I can get used to it, ready for my future Mac Book Pro purchase.
One of the things that I am currently working towards is that I want to update the Enterprise Vault Mac client, it is currently at 8 SP 2, and I want to go to 8 SP 4.

And that worked !
I am on my way.
