Bug #78198 No x64 Upgrade for Connector/Net, MySQL Documentation, & Samples and Examples

Category:MySQL for Windows: Installer Severity:S2 (Serious)
Version: OS:Windows
Assigned to: CPU Architecture:Any
Tags: architecture, products.xml

The products.xml file listing for Connector/Net ver 6.9.7, MySQL Documentation ver 7.7.8, and Samples and Examples ver 5.7.8 erroneously lists the architecture as "X86" when it should be "Any", preventing upgrade of those components on an X64 architecture system.

How to repeat:
On a Windows X64 architecture system, attempt to upgrade Connector/Net to ver 6.9.7, MySQL Documentation to ver 7.7.8, and Samples and Examples to ver 5.7.8.  The component is grayed out.

Suggested fix:
Correct the products.xml file "arch" entries for the above components to read "Any" instead of "X86".

This can be fixed with a manifest update and republication, no changes on the Installer are needed.
