Hi all.  We are using Rapidminer 5 in an offline environment (not connected to internet).  Is there a way to get the the updates (primarily the Weka classifiers) in an offline way such as a bundle of files or something like that?  Thanks in advance.

    I'm not sure about updating RM itself but extensions can be downloaded to one computer and copied between offline computers by moving ~/.RapidMiner5/managed to the home folder of the computer running the code that is offline.

    Aa far as I know you can simply download the JAR files for the extensions from sourceforge and put them into the RM subdirectory lib/plugins. There should always be one file per extension and the previously installed extensions should be disabled (Help - Manage Extensions in RM-GUI). Works really easy for extensions. For the RapidMiner program itself it should be possible to simply overwrite files with the ones from the latest archive also available at sourceforge.

    I tried the moving first solution of copying the /managed subdirectory from my home directory.  Worked just fine. Thanks.
