Updated Jobs Installer to 1.4.x
Installed New Scheduling engine, not sure what this will do to Danny's workstation, but I will have to update his machine.
The installation asked is I wanted to over write the previous installation, I said Yes. (Unexpected questions)

Mark: Upgrade was actually quite easy, fully automatic more or less.
