Can we update Pega 7 personal edition to the latest version instead of downloading and installing the entire software again.I know there is a section "Pega 7 Update software" under Support/downloads menu in PDN. Is it for personal edition or enterprise edition?
Appreciate your help.

Entire PE edition software is of 4.3 GB in size. I think "Update software" is of around 1 GB in size having only additional features that get introduced with any latest version(ML). Updating software is fast and retains the existing applications. If we install latest version of PE(7.2.2) from scratch, we may need to export the existing applications that were built on older version to have them imported on latest version. It seems "Update software(path: Support/downloads/Pega7 update software)" is available to enterprise edition (licensed version) and not for personal edition.I feel, If update software is available for PE, it will be easy to update to newer ML versions without having to download bigger full software file.Any thoughts?
