Installing version 10.0 on our QA Server and here are some pictures of new stuff I'm seeing as I install it right now.
Here's the screen that asks if you want Tableau to create a backup for you or not:
I didn't stop Server so Tableau did it for me :
A second window opened opened under the above one and when I looked at it this is what it was:
So the uninstall is being done, just automatically
Can finally browse to other drives:
Unfortunately this additional click still exists:
It's just that I want the fewest clicks necessary to get this job done and the above should just be an information pop-up, not something that requires a confirmation click.
Oh, speaking of unnecessary additional clicks:
If everything is okay then just continue on. The progress display lets me know everything is fine:
Please, only make me click when there's an error or actual data input required.
Oh, when everything was done I was greeted with this in Internet Explorer 8 :
LOL, yeah, I think I need to tell the IT folks who build the VMs to put the corporate standard browser on them (Internet Explorer v.11). Luckily this is no big deal for me, now I have a vald reason to use Firefox! ...< time passes >...and installed!
Okay, this install did go quickly, mostly because there was no mandatory backup required As noted above there is still a need in my opinion to speed up the install process by having less clicks, especially mid-stream.
Good luck with your upgrades. Tableau has done a good job making this easy and the documentation is a little more thorough, which is a nice and positive change
