Qxtender - User Guide - Online Updates

Our goal is to keep full installs as infrequent as possible. Most plugins and components are only about 700KB in size. With integrated online updating they can be individually updated, so we can respond quicker to isolated issues, and keep you up-to-date with shorter download and install times – and less hassle.

The Online Update Utility allows you to install new plugins in Qxtender, update existing plugins, and update Qxtender and its components.

It makes a connection to the Qtools Software web server using the standard secure HTTPS (SSL) protocol.

No user information is logged by Qtools Software during this process. It simply compares the versions of application components and plugins on your system with a list of the latest versions on the Qtools site -- then provides the option to download and install only those items that are required or that you choose.

Select "Check for Updates" from the "Online Updates" menu to start the utility.

 

The Online Update utility opens. Just follow the instructions in green at the top of the window.

Click the "Check for Updates" button to begin.

A connection will be made to the Qtools update server, using your default internet connection. The status bar will indicate the connection progress.

(Note: If you connect to the internet via a proxy server, enter the proxy server information in the "Online Settings" tab.)

 

When the check for updates process completes, a list of available updates to Qxtender and your installed plugins will be displayed.

Checked items will be download and updated when you click "Get Updates."

Grayed-out checked items are mandatory application component updates.

Other plugins available from Qtools that you do not have installed are displayed in the lower list.

 

Getting new plugins

To download new plugins, simply check the box next to the plugin in the lower list. Then click "Get Updates."

 

The download and update progress is displayed in the lower right-hand area.

When it completes, update messages will be shown in the lists.

Closing this utility after getting updates will initiate a separate installation process.

All plugins and most application components are installed "hot" and become immediately available without having to exit Qxtender.

 

Installation of Updates (with Core Application Updates)

If there is an update to the core Qxtender application, this message will be displayed.

After closing this dialog, Qxtender will be temporarily shutown and an update utility will launch to perform the install of the downloaded updates. It will require elevation to administrator rights in Windows Vista and later.

 

This Updater utility performs the installation of the updates, and relaunches Qxtender once you click the "Done" button.

 

Installation of Updates (without Core Application Updates)

If there is are no updates to the core Qxtender application, this message will be displayed.

After closing this dialog, Qxtender will remain running and an update utility will launch to perform the install of the downloaded updates. It will require elevation to administrator rights in Windows Vista and later.

 

This Updater utility performs the installation of the updates, and returns control to Qxtender once you click the "Done" button.
