Some users are on 6.5.57 already. As always, releases are done in stages to minimize the weight on support.

There was an issue with something in .57, so .58 may be the replacement as soon as it's ready. I've skipped an update in the past because I was further down the queue.

I am not on the server computer & it does not get shut down at night (due to backup of the server). Will there be a note that pops up that lets us know if the next update it ready? or how does it work?
Last time i think the server computer got shut down for some other reason & then the update showed up. So we do not know if we had that update for a while & just did not know it or did it just happen to show up at that same time. Just wondering how that process works.
Thanks, ARS

The updater program on the host machine continually looks for updates and downloads them when available. The updater programs on the workstations look to the host for updates and downloads them to each machine when the host has the update. When you start the program, you'll get a message pop-up that alerts you to an update. You have the opportunity to have the program remind you later about the update as well.

Ok- We do not shut down Mitchell on the server or host computer either at night. (because we were told that Mitchell needs it open to do their backup) We will try to make it a routine to shut it down in the morning every couple days. It would be nice if there was pop up to let us know that one is available somehow. We will work around it. Seeing some good things on the update.
Thanks, ARS

I pretty sure Manager does not need to be running to do the backup. The computer needs to be on, though, not set to hibernate or sleep. We shut down all Manager programs every night (including the host workstation) and my backup works fine. Host computer needs to be up and running.

Apologies for delay, travelling today. I contacted support and they added you to the list using the #1023629 account number you registered with the forum. I'm told you should see a prompt to update in 2-3 days.

You should contact support as this issue is beyond the scope of this forum.

We are still waiting for the update... We wish there was a schedule posted so we would know when we could expect our computers to be updated... then we would not be wondering when it was going to happen & bugging you guys...

Apologies for the non-linear experience, we are working on it. There are many moving pieces at this time that we need to simplify. If I were to post a schedule, it would be quietly (and innocently) undermined constantly as determinations to proceed or hold occur constantly and would not be telegraphed to yours truly on a timely basis.

I will check into your specific account number to see what's up.

What exactly does the check for update do? It was added when we received 6.5.54.

BTW we haven't been updated yet either but we seem to be one of the last to receive updates so I'm not concerned about it. Were not having any issues with what we have.

That simply added a friendly user-facing option to initiate a check for updates rather than a more complicated behind the scenes trigger.
