  •     Please note that the links for downloading the files are located near the bottom of the page.
  •     LiveUpdate files are prefixed with NBLU
  •     For Windows platforms download only the updates you need for your architectures:  x86, x64, or IA64.
  •     For Unix platforms you will need to download all three files.

3. Unzip these files into a directory on the Web Server.

  •     Windows and Unix files can all be extracted into the same directory
  •     Allow duplicate files to be overwritten
