Suppose I have to create a release area for version 1.3 of a product.
With the Packaging Utility, I will first copy the 1.0 offering (the base version), then the 1.3 fixpack.
Now, the Packaging Utility shows (if you flag *Show All*) 2 versions of the product in the release area: 1.0 and 1.3.
This means, I suppose, that by accessing that release area with Installation Manager, you can install either version 1.0 or version 1.3.
If I need only version 1.3, can I delete the 1.0 package from the release area?
The Packaging Utility allows you to do that, but I am not sure whether the resulting release area contains a fully working (and self-consistent) 1.3 offering.

Re: Deleting packages with Packaging Utility2012-11-16T15:04:41ZThis is the accepted answer. This is the accepted answer.If the 1.0 version of the package is deleted the entire 1.3 version of the package will be available in the repository. This would allow a user to install version 1.3 from the repository.
BTW if there ever is a problem with missing content the Installation Manager complains early, even before it begins to download artifacts, and no harm is done.
