FME Engine Only Upgrade

FME Engines are the component of FME Server that perform the actual data translations and transformations. At times, you might want to upgrade only your FME Engines and not any other FME Server components. For example, you might want to provide support for recently added formats or other newer functionality included in a new release, which requires only an upgrade of the FME Engines.

The procedures described in this section use the standard FME installer provided on the Safe Software web site, and can be performed with an official or beta release of the FME Engine installer.

Safe supports installing newer FME Engines, as long as the engines share the same major version/year as the current installation of FME Server. For example, on FME Server 2016.0, the FME Engines may be upgraded to 2016.1.3, but may not be upgraded to 2017.0.
