Q: Do we use the gds install to run these ones in the folder as selecting them through the browse doesn’t work.


*copy deliverable folders (DO NOT EXTRACT) here: C:\ProgramData\GDS 2\PersistentData\Downloads\DataBackups

*extract the deliverables you want and only copy the .xml files and install them here: C:\ProgramData\GDS 2\PersistentData\Downloads AND also install here: C:\ProgramData\GDS 2\PersistentData\Downloads\Deliverables

**when you go to manage diagnostic packages before doing the above you can click browse and you find the deliverable you want to run and then gds2 should restart automatically after gds2 restarts look at the lower left corner of the screen it shows you what version of gds2 you are running and what deliverable you are using.
