Program Updates

Top  Previous  Next


There are two mechanisms for updating your installation of CodedColor:


1.The AutoUpdate feature of the LiveUpdate panel in the Program Settings dialog.
2.The LiveUpdate dialog


The AutoUpdate feature looks for new CodedColor versions at defined intervals. You are always queried if you want to download and install a new release. The Auto Update feature only looks for version jumps from "x.y" to "x.y+1", i.e "2.7" to "2.8". It does not care about minor updates (i.e "2.7.1" to "2.7.2")


The LiveUpdate dialog displays all bug fixes, third party modules and new releases of CodedColor. To use this dialog, you need to connect to the internet, as the update information is downloaded prior to the display of the dialog.


Basic facts about AutoUpdate and LiveUpdate:


Newer versions of CodedColor are usually installed through the AutoUpdate feature.
Third party tools can be manually downloaded and installed through the LiveUpdate dialog.
No personal information is lost, if you install a newer version of CodedColor over an existing one. You can even uninstall CodedColor and later install a newer version, without loosing your annotation or thumb database.
All downloaded setup programs are archived in the C:\Programs\CodedColor\LiveUpdate directory of your installation. If you have to reinstall one of the downloads, look in this directory.

If you choose to manually download and install a newer version of CodedColor from the Web, make sure you install into the same directory of your existing installation.


Make sure CodedColor is not running, if you are doing a manual update! Look into the system tray (lower right part of the taskbar) and close the program with a right mouseclick, if you see a CodedColor icon.
