Momentics 6.3.2 and Core OS 6.3.2A - Windows Host  
Having installed Momentics 6.3.2, I'm in doubt whether Core OS 6.3.2A is included (the docs are a bit confusing in this 
matter).

According to the 6.3.2A release notes, 'The QNX Neutrino Core OS 6.3.2A is identical to 6.3.2, except that we've updated
...' does indicate that this is not the case.

Further, the output from my qconfig:

<output>
QNX Installations

  Installation Name: QNX Momentics Development Suite 6.3.2
            Version: 6.3.2
     Base Directory: C:/QNX632
           QNX_HOST: C:/QNX632/host/win32/x86
         QNX_TARGET: C:/QNX632/target/qnx6

Additional Packages
</output>

looks completely different from the example in the 6.3.2A release notes.

But when trying to install Core 6.3.2A, I'm informed that 6.3.2A has already been installed.

Can someone please enlighten me? 

TIA,
Jacob Dall

The release notes for Momentics 6.3.2 has an complete list of what is included:

http://www.qnx.org/developers/docs/6.3.2/momentics/release_notes/rel_6.3.2.html#Features_632

The quick explanation is that:
- CoreOS 6.3.2A is an upgrade to QNX 6.3.0.
- Momentics 6.3.2 is a full install which includes Core OS 6.3.2A, IDE 4.0.1, a bunch of TDKs and several fixes.

The CoreOS 6.3.2a release notes says: "The QNX Neutrino Core OS 6.3.2A is an upgrade for QNX Neutrino 6.3.0 with Service
 Pack 1 or 2 that updates the kernel (procnto), libc, various utilities and daemons, and the system headers."

You have Momentics 6.3.2 install which means you have the CoreOS 6.3.2A update.

Thanks, Ryan, for your explanation.

I was aware of the complete list, but still I had some doubt. 

Your reply cleared things out.

Thanks again.
