When new versions of Player are released, two options are available for updating existing installations:
- One option is performed directly on the device hosting Player. This requires to have local admin right on the device.
- The other is to perform it remotely by those in possession of an Enterprise-level Intuiface plan.
Player on Windows will never automatically update itself to ensure updates only occur when you want them to occur.
From within Intuiface Player
At the bottom of Player's Experiences panel is a "Check for Updates" option. Clicking it will initiate a search for an updated version of Player.
If a newer version of Player is available, you are given the option to download and install it. You will need local administration rights to complete the installation.
Using a downloaded installer
If you need to install a specific Player version - or if the device running Player is offline - you can manually run the Player installer. Download the installer for the desired version of Player from the Intuiface Downloads page. (Of course, if the Player device is offline, you will have to download the installer using some other device and then copy it over to the Player device.)
You don't need to uninstall the previous version of Player, but you do need to stop Player if it is currently running. You will need local administrator rights to complete the installation. The newly installed Player will inherit the licensing status of the previously installed version.
Exclusively for those in possession of an Enterprise-level Intuiface account, it is possible to remotely update Player through the use of the Share and Deploy Console. (Click the image for a closer look.)
With this option, Player can be migrated to any available version of Player, not just the latest version. In addition, updates can be scheduled in advance.
