Upgrade development environment from SP2 to SP3

Anyone experienced an upgrade from SP2 to SP3 in a development enviroment?
It would be great if there was a possibility to avoid the EPiServer Manager for doing that. I really need a more accurate and controlled upgrade with manual steps.

Ok, I have the answer to my own question (thanks Jimmy ;-)

Take the following folders with files from the Manager Installation Package:

Copy them into the web project.

Change your version data in the web.config:
"5.1.422.256" replaces "5.1.422.267", section EPiServer and assmembly bindings.

Then change the SiteSetting-parameter "mirroringFileWriteRetryDelay" to "0:0:5".

Now your are done!

And the database... nothing is changed in the database between SP2 and SP3.

Hi Andreas Ek ,

I am facing a problem while upgrading the CMS 5 SP2 to SP3. It's throwing the "Object reference not set to an instance of an object." error.
I am having the Package file "5.1.422.256_to_5.1.422.267.pkg" to upgrade in offline. but i'm not able to upgrade it.

What would be the problem? And How to upgrade it from SP2 to SP3?
