Web update


Top  Previous  Next




To access the web update function:

Click Help then Check for updates on the menu bar.


Web update will check, download, and install Kinetics updates from the RxKinetics web site. A live connection to the internet is required.  If you dial-up to connect, please do so before proceeding with the web update.


There are three steps to the web update process, and there are three buttons on this window which correspond to the three steps.


Step One - Check for update

Click the Check for updates button to access the RxKinetics web site to check for available updates.  If an update is available, the "Download" button will be activated.


Step Two - Download update

Select an update from the list by clicking on the check box next to the description, then click the Download updates button to proceed.  If the download was successful, the "Install" button will be activated.


Step Three - Install update

A running program cannot be replaced.  Therefore, you must exit Kinetics before installing an update. Web update will not proceed with the install step until you close Kinetics.


After you have closed the Kinetics program, click the Install updates button to begin the update process.


To exit without installing, click the close program icon on the web update window, i.e., the "X" in the upper right hand corner.


If a shared component was updated, you may be instructed to restart your computer.  Otherwise, restart the Kinetics program to access the updated version.
