BOW! Automatic Update Feature (AutoUp)
With AutoUp your computer system communicates with this web site through a secure and encrypted means to download and install the latest software release. In order to make use of this feature your BOW! SERVER computer must have internet access – hopefully high speed although dailup will work also. If it is not possible for your server to access the Internet you should still update your system periodically. Contact us for further details.
The Autoup process
Ensure you have access to all computers that will be running BOW! on your network.
In order for AutoUp to be able to update all computers in a multiple computer set-up the "C" drive on EACH WORKSTATION computer must be shared and the BOW! System must be installed on that drive. If it is not possible to share the drive, or if BOW! is installed in a non-standard way, this function will not work for you.
Ensure that your BOW! Server has Internet Access. If you are using a dialup service establish a connection now. If you are running BOW! on a single computer consider that to be your BOW! Server.
Once the update is complete, exit BOW! Reports Then run BOW! on the SERVER. Then start up each Work Station computer and you are back in business with all machines completely up-to-date.
