Updates

Automatic updates

GEM-CAR 2021 automatically updates itself in the background. It triggers this process when starting. In normal circumstances, you have nothing to do to update GEM-CAR 2021.

Critical updates

Occasionally, some critical updates are necessary to continue to use some GEM-CAR 2021 features. If these updates can't wait for the next restart, a pup-up window will notify you. In this case, follow the instructions below.

  1. When GEM-CAR asks you if you want to update, select Yes. It will bring you to the Update tab of the Main menu.

  2. Select Update the application.

If you don't update GEM-CAR asked, you will not be able to use the modules affected by the critical update.

Manual updates

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

  1. On the Help tab of the Main menu, go to Update.
  2. GEM-CAR will search for update. If an update is available, it will notify you with a circular yellow icon with an exclamation mark. Select Update the application.

If GEM-CAR 2021 is already up to date, the icon will be green with a checkmark and the update button won't be selectable. If the notification icon is red with an X, an error occurred while searching for update or attempting to download the files. This can be caused by the internet connection or the download server. Usually, restarting the computer solves this issue.
