LiveUpdate Information

A new version of Live Update was released in July 2006. This new Live Update version of Live Update has been enhanced and incorporated into the TriForce XP main system.

Important feature: TriForce XP Administrators can easily use Live Update from a remote Windows Terminal Services or Citrix sessions. Unlike the old Live Update, we no longer rely on a local installation of Live Update on individual workstations; therefore there is no dependency on the workstation registry. TriForce XP handles all files and dependencies as Live Update is now server centric.

Built-in security with TriForce XP performs serial number, Annual Software Contract validity checking, and related account status checks. All details of your log-in, attempted downloads and successful downloads will be logged by our server exactly as they have been since 1995. This keeps us informed of your exact status for support purposes.

Live Update is a single click of the mouse: once started, it will first show your running version and the newest version available from the TriForce XP web-site. Click Download to obtain the newest version; click Apply to extract the newly downloaded version and automatically restart the newly updated version of TriForce.

For convenience, the download and apply processes can be done at separate times. Download in the morning and apply the new version after all users have left for the day.

If TriForce XP is in use, you will be notified that the update can not be applied at that time, and to try again later. As in the past, if an update is in progress, all users will be blocked from accessing TriForce XP with a message that an update is in progress.
