how to use new pkg_virtuemart xml?
« on: September 20, 2018, 18:16:29 pm »
I see there is a new pkg_virtuemart.xml file & a script file in the extracted 3.4 package - but cannot find any instructions on how to install using these as opposed to individually installing the usual way

any help would be greatly appreciated

As Milbo mentioned in the news release, you can install all elements of VM/aio/tcpdf and VMBeez template in the one package. eg use the Joomla extensions installer, and drop the com_virtuemart.3.4.0.9935_package_or_extract.zip package into the uploader and away it goes, all updated or installedin one step. The script & xml file are needed to make it possible.
