Frequently asked questions about WDAutomaticUpdate

Which upgraded versions do I have to download?

The upgraded versions detected by WDAutomaticUpdate correspond to the PC SOFT products that you use. The upgraded versions allow you to benefit from the new features available for your different products.

Which information is sent to PC SOFT during the process for detecting and installing the upgraded versions?

No personal details and no information about the product (name of the product, serial number, and so on) are transmitted to PC SOFT during the process for detecting and installing the upgraded versions. Only the IP address of your computer is known.

Which languages are taken into account?

WDAutomaticUpdate is multilingual software whose interface is available in French and in English. The available upgraded versions will depend on the language of the product installed on your computer (French Version or International Version).
This option is not available in this version.

How many times do I need to perform the search for upgraded versions to get the most recent version of my product?

The upgraded versions that can be used with the current version of your product will be proposed whenever WDAutomaticUpdate is run.
After an update performed by WDAutomaticUpdate, we advise you to re-run the search for upgraded versions to find out whether new updates are available.
This search can be performed as follows:
  • before version 18, select "? .. Information on the Web .. Find the upgraded versions on Internet" for example.
  • from version 18, on the "Home" pane, in the "Online help" group, expand "Information on the Web" and select "Find the upgraded versions on Internet" for example.

Yes, the upgraded versions can be downloaded and installed locally on your computer. All the upgraded versions are available from PC SOFT, Download center.

I am using a firewall. Can I perform the search for upgraded versions?

If you are using a firewall that requests an authorization for each connection, you must answer "Yes" in order for WDAutomaticUpdate to operate.
You will not be able to use the mechanism for upgrading the editors if you are using a silent firewall.

I am using a proxy. Can I perform the search for upgraded versions?

If you are using a proxy, you will be able to use the mechanism for upgrading the editors. WDAutomaticUpdate is using the proxy parameters configured in Internet Explorer.

How do I uninstall the upgraded versions?
