Autoupdate utility - Free (8 MB)
Ensures that you have the latest version of all products installed
Autoupdate is utility that is designed to automatically install Neuro Innovations product updates.
In the past to obtain the most recent version of a product you would have needed to download the current version, uninstall the previous version and install the latest version manually. Now all you need to do is click on the "Autoupdate" icon and the program will do all of the above on your behalf more or less automatically.
All you need is the userid and password that you normally use to access the Neuro Innovations downloads area. A reminder of your userid / password is contained in all unlock code eMails that we send out. Please note that the userid and password are both CaSe SeNsItIve.
Autoupdate will update almost all Neuro Innovations products, including itself and has been tested on XP Pro, XP Media Centre, Vista and Windows 7 machines - all with broadband Internet connections. (Exceptions are - all Mac products and the Emetophobia desensitisation pack). (The program may not be able to access the web from within some 'proxy server' corporate networks or if blocked by a firewall).
(1) Download "Autoupdate".
Right click on the link at the bottom of all unlock eMails sent after 1 Oct 08 and select "Save target as" in Internet Explorer or Outlook Express, or "Save link as" in Firefox".
You will be prompted to enter your userid and password as mentioned above. Save to your hard drive eg your desktop and double click on the file when it has fully downloaded to install the Autoupdate program.
(2) Close all open applications and double click on the new "NI Autoupdate" icon that will have appeared on your desktop.
Enter your userid and password as mentioned above one final time (thereafter the userid / password will be automatically saved so you don't need to re-enter them again).
Click on the "Check for updates" button.
(3) Wait until the updates have been downloaded.
(NB If there are a lot of updates to be installed this could take some time, so perhaps take a break and let the program do the work for you). The program may seem to freeze at times but it is working in the background.
If "Autoupdate" needs to update itself the program will close automatically. You will need to reopen "Autoupdate" manually after the reinstallation has taken place.
Confirm that you want to install the updates by clicking on "Next" if prompted. You should not be prompted to confirm uninstallation and reinstallation for all products other than Autoupdate itself.
After the updates are installed the updated programs will be opened so you can see what has changed.
(4) When something significant changes in any of the programs you have purchased we will let you know via the what's new page on this website.
All you need to do at that point is click on the "NI Autoupdate" icon again and the latest versions will be installed for you.
The first time that "Autoupdate" is run it will uninstall and reinstall everything that was installed prior to Oct 2008. Thereafter only updates will be installed.
