Update Wizard

SmartWhois has a built-in capability to check for the updates at the TamoSoft web site. If the program finds out that the installed version is older than the one on the server, it will prompt you to download and install the update. You can make SmartWhois check for the available updates automatically each time the program is started by checking the Enable automatic application updates checkbox on the Settings => Options => Updates window. Alternatively, you can do it manually by clicking on the Help => Check for an Update menu item. This will launch the Update Wizard that will guide you through the updating process.


If no updates are available, the Wizard will inform you accordingly and close, otherwise a window will appear that will show the description of the update. Check the Skip the update and prompt me for the next one checkbox if you don't want to install this update. Check the Do not check for updates in the future checkbox if you would like to disable the automatic update feature. Click on the Next button to continue with the upgrade. The next screen will allow you to specify the location where you would like to save the upgrade package. You can enter the path manually, or click on the Browse button to browse to a folder. Click on the Next button to begin downloading the package. After the package has been downloaded, you will see the confirmation screen. Please check the Execute the downloaded file checkbox if you would like to install the update immediately, or leave it unchecked if you prefer to do it at a later time.
