About this task
From the Exchange tab view, you can reinstall components you already downloaded and installed in your previous version of Talend Studio or install the updated version of Talend Studio or components in your current Studio.
By default, while you are connected to Talend Exchange, a dialog box appears to notify you whenever an update to an installed community component is available. If you often check for community component updates and you do not want that dialog box to appear again, you can turn it off in Talend Exchange preferences settings. For more information, see Exchange preferences (Talend > Exchange).
To reinstall a community component you already downloaded or update an installed one, do the following:
From the Exchange tab view, click
Downloaded Extensions to display the
list of components you have already downloaded from Talend Exchange.
In the Downloaded Extensions view, the components you have installed in your previous version of Talend Studio but not in your current Studio have an Install link in the Install/Update column, and those with updates available in Talend Exchange have an Update link.
Click the Install or Update link for the component of interest to
start the installation process.
A progress indicator appears to show the completion percentage of the installation process. Upon successful installation, the Downloaded Extensions view displays the status of the component, which is Installed.
