Restoring a Login AM environment

While creating a backup, the Login AM Updater will create zip files of the previous version in the Backups folder on the Login AM share.

This allows you to restore the Login AM software to the previous version using the Control Panel -> Programs -> Programs and Features dialog.

Alternatively, you can start the appwiz.cpl from the Start Menu.
