Update the Vista-Team Connector

Update the Vista-Team Connector (previously referred to as the "Vista API") and Project Communications Database file to take advantage of the latest improvements.

For details about the latest Vista-Team Connector, see Vista-Team Connector Version History.

Note: You can run the latest update files at any time without affecting Vista. However, Windows may prompt for a reboot during the update due to IIS applications that may be running. In this case, waiting until after business hours before rebooting can help minimize downtime.
CAUTION:
When updating the Vista-Team Connector, you must run both the Project Communications Database update file (Vista_ProjectCommunicationsDB_x.x.x.x.exe) and the Vista-Team Connector file (Vista_Team_Connector_x.x.x.x.exe). Running one file without running the other could result in data loss.
