1. Download and extract the private zip file to a temporary location on your cluster node. See the table below to determine which file you must download:
       | Operating System 	| Name of Private File to Download   |
       | Windows 2000      	|  |
       | Windows 2003 (x86)     | | 
       | Windows 2003 (x64) 	|  |
       | Windows 2003 (ia64)    | |
   Each .zip file contains the following file:
       | Name of the file 	| New Version number |
       | had.exe      		|       | 
2. Make sure that the cluster configuration is in read-only mode.

   Type the following on the command prompt:
	C:> hastop -all
4. Take backup of the file had.exe from %VCS_HOME%in directory. Copy the extracted file, had.exe to %VCS_HOME%in directory. The variable %VCS_HOME% is       the default installation directory for VCS, typically C:Program FilesVERITAScluster server. The earlier version of the file is replaced.
