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
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
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.
