Updating SpeedPaks

You must manually update out-of-date SpeedPak configurations to incorporate changes you make in the assembly.

When you make changes to an assembly, such as adding, deleting, or moving components, the changes are not automatically incorporated into the SpeedPak configurations, even when you rebuild the assembly. You must manually update the SpeedPak configurations to incorporate the changes.
The SpeedPak icon in the ConfigurationManager is flagged with when the SpeedPak is out of date.

Updating Assembly SpeedPak Configurations

You can update out-of-date SpeedPak configurations in the assembly in which they were created.

To update a SpeedPak:

  • On the ConfigurationManager tab, under Configurations, right-click an existing SpeedPak configuration and select Update SpeedPak.

    The SpeedPak configuration updates to incorporate changes that have been made to its components.

Updating Subassembly SpeedPaks from Parent Assembly

You can update out-of-date subassembly SpeedPak configurations from within the parent assembly.

You can update all subassembly SpeedPaks at once, or update only SpeedPaks in selected subassemblies.

To update subassembly SpeedPaks:

  • Do one of the following:
    • To update all subassembly SpeedPaks, click Update SpeedPak (Assemblies toolbar), or right-click the top-level assembly in the FeatureManager design tree and click Update All SpeedPaks.
    • To update selected subassembly SpeedPaks, select one or more subassemblies, right-click, and click Update SpeedPak.

    Updating subassembly SpeedPaks might take a significant amount of time depending on the number and complexity of out-of-date SpeedPaks in the parent assembly.
