By default, all updates will download & install automatically with CertiportNow (see section 4). However, it can still be helpful to understand the different types of updates when deploying Console if:
- A critical update comes through (this will be indicated by a red bar across your updates tile)
- Your CATC has low bandwidth and you are employing a local or network based solution (e.g. LAN Solution)
- A single workstation needs to have Console reinstalled or a new workstation is being added to an existing lab
- You decide to start administering a new exam program
For System Updates (the Console software itself), every time a new update is released, we do not always release a new installer (exe file) at the same time. So, when you are performing a fresh install, you may also have to install any updates that have been released since the last installer file was created.
When you first install Console 8, you will need to select the Program (Exam) content you wish to download via the "Download Exams" tile based on the exams you wish to administer at your CATC. After that, you will only need to download any updates that may be released for those exams.
