Hi support,

I had a look in the forums and FAQ but could not immediately find a post about a similar subject.

I try to keep up to date with LPCXpresso releases, and appreciate the release frequency. The recent advances in the toolkit have been worth the effort to upgrade.

Every install creates a new isolated copy of the tool-set. This can make perfect sense, so it is wise to keep this option. However, every time I update, I need to re-install and copy my workspace and setup my additional plug-ins (for configuration management and DoxyGen). Also, I need to export and import my Eclipse settings (or redo them from scratch). This takes about 30 minutes, so basically I have little reason to complain.

Having said that though, it would be very nice if the upgrade would take less time. I think that translates to a more automated upgrade. Is this a subject you are considering for future versions?
