You can check for updates to Take Command with the Help / Check for Updates menu entry. (In TCC, you can also use the OPTION / Check for Updates tab.)

 

You can also automate updates by using the Updater tool. UPDATE.EXE is a small executable tool (located in your Take Command installation directory) whose role is to check for updates, inform the user of their presence and offer to download and install them. When launched, the Updater checks if a newer version of Take Command exists.

 

Updater options

You can also run the Updater from the command line or batch files. The Updater has the following command line options:

 

/checknow - The Updater is launched, pops up a dialog box, checks for updates and automatically informs the user that new updates are available. If no updates are available, the Updater will exit immediately.

/silent - The Updater will search silently for updates at the interval specified by the user. The search interval can be specified in the Configuration dialog. By default it is the value you specified in the "Check Frequency" field (Updater Page). If the check frequency has not passed or there are no updates available, the Updater will exit immediately.

/silentall - The Updater will search silently for updates and automatically install all updates. This has the has the same effect as the /silent option if the user has selected the "Check and automatically install all updates" option in the configuration dialog. If the check frequency has not passed or there are no updates available, the Updater will exit immediately.

/configure - the Configure dialog will be displayed allowing the configuration of the Updater. In this dialog the user can specify the download folder, the check frequency, enable or disable the automatically update option.
