If you try to update sub-versions within each build, you may update it following these procedures:

  1. Download a update package (zip file, ~ 5MB in size) here.
  2. Extract the update package, with the directory structure (keeping a lib directory in the zip package).
  3. Locate your SVA installation directory. Use the extracted files and directories to replace the old files and directories, with the same file name in the installation directory.
