Hi Experts,

What exactly happens when we try to repair the instance using the REPAIR option under maintenance in Installation.

Thanks in Advance

just like the repair for any other item that was installed with windows insaller:

reviews any dll's , exe's or ocx's, as well as files for differences in the saved .msi and what is currently installled, and replaces them if they don't match/CRC doesn't match.;
i believe the isntaller alos looks at version numbers, so if something appears to have a higher version, (ie it was patched), it gets skipped.
