Automatic updates

GEM-CAR 2022 updates itself automatically in the background when it starts. You then generally don't have to worry about updates.

Critical updates

Occasionally, critical updates might be necessary to continue to use some features. If it can't wait for its next restart, GEM-CAR will notify you. In this case, follow the instructions below to proceed with the update.

  1. When asked if you want to update now, select Yes. GEM-CAR will bring you to the Update section.
  2. Select Update the application.

If you don't update GEM-CAR now, you can't continue to use the affected features until the next restart.

Manual updates

If you need to manually update GEM-CAR 2021, follow the instructions below.

  1. In the GEM-CAR 2022 Main menu, go to Help and then Update.
  2. If an update is available, a circular yellow icon with an exclamation mark will appear. Select Update the application.

When GEM-CAR 2021 is already up to date, the icon is green with a checkmark and the update button is disabled. If the icon is red with an X, an error occurred while searching for update or attempting to retrieve the download files. The problem can be caused either by the internet connection or the download server. Generally, rebooting the computer solves this issue.
