How to Install the Update
PC*MILER is equipped with a web-based update tool to facilitate the download and installation of software patches and updates. To access this feature, use the following steps:
- Close all open instances of PC*MILER and its connectivity products. If a third-party program that accesses any PC*MILER component is running (for example, PC*MILER Connect), it must be closed before updating.
- Confirm the computer has an active Internet connection.
- Open PC*MILER again, then select Help > Check for Updates. After a few moments, the PC*MILER Updater window is displayed. The Updater first checks for valid license information and then begins checking for available updates.
- If no updates are listed in the Available Updates window, PC*MILER is up to date. Stop here and close the Updater window.
- If updates are listed in the Available Updates window, use the remaining steps below to update PC*MILER.
- In the Download & Install drop-down menu next to each available update, select either Download & Install to download and install right away, or Download to download now and install later. Selecting either option will begin the download process. The progress of the download will be displayed in a progress bar.
- If Download & Install was chosen, the InstallShield Wizard will open when the download is finished. Follow the instructions to complete the installation. After installing, the update is listed under “Installed Updates” in the Updater window.
- If Download was chosen, the button to the right will read, “Install” when the download is finished. The installation can be completed as described above at any time in the future by opening the Updater window and clicking Install.
- Check to make sure the update installed properly. Select Help > About… and look for the Software Version number under “This Product is Licensed To”. It should match what you downloaded.
