XXXXX_xx-XX replaced the build numer and the localization. For example ABR11.5A_37975_en-US.exe is an installation file for Windows of a US localization for Build 37975 of Acronis Backup & Recovery 11.5 Advanced.

(!) Bootable components are not included into the Advanced Agent for Linux installation package by default. Thus, if you perform a system restore from running OS with no ABR11.5BCMBL* installed, then the restore operation will try to reboot the server into the bootable media, but upon reboot the OS will boot again.

Web installer:

  •  ABR11.5A_XXXXX_web_xx-XX.exe - Acronis Backup & Recovery 11.5 Advanced web installer
