Desktop Updates

True Update automatically initiates Desktop updates. True Update contains Agent, Supervisor, and Administrator Desktop applications. Upon application launch, if newer software is available on the web server, True Update initiates the upgrade installation process.

The new software becomes available when you install the latest Maintenance Release on the server machine. True Update checks the maintenance and build version. For example, if the agent runs 6.0(1) which is version, and the server runs 6.0(2), which is version, True Update upgrades the agent desktop to 6.0(2) when an agent logs in. However, True Update only checks the version of the application, and not the Service Release (SR).

Note: In order to disable the auto-updates, try one of these methods:

  • Push C:\Program Files\wfavvid\tomcat_appadmin\webapps\TUP\CAD\CAD Clients Service Release.msi using SMS.

  • Rename the file on CAD at location C:\Program Files\COMMON FILES\CAD\bin\update.exe.
