E-Prime has the ability to check the web (pstnet.com) for software updates. When enabled, E-Prime prompts users that an update is available and may be downloaded (INSTALL: Information sent when E-Prime Check for Updates queries for new versions of E-Prime ).
Upon opening E-Studio for the first time after installation, the E-Prime Check for Updates Welcome screen appears. Users may then decide to enable or disable the updates. An option must be selected before continuing.
Enabling Check for Updates
Enabling Check for Updates permits E-Prime to check with PST to see if a new version of E-Prime is avaliable. When this option is selected, users specify how often to check for updates using the dropdown menu. The dropdown arrow can be clicked to set the number of days E-Prime waits to check for a new update.
Additionally, users select the amount of computer details to provide to PST when checking for updates. See INSTALL: Information sent when E-Prime Check for Updates queries for new versions of E-Prime  for more information.
Disabling Check for Updates
When Check for Updates is disabled, E-Prime does not automatically check to determine if a new version of E-Prime is available. However, this does not stop users from manually downloading updates from the PST Support page.
Changing the Check for Updates Setting
The Check for Updates settings may be changed at any time from the Tools > Options menu in E-Studio. The Update tab in the Options menu contains the Check for Updates settings.
On the Updates tab, users can turn Check for Updates on or off, configure the number of days between checking for updates, and select the level of machine detail provided to PST. Additionally, the dialog indicates the next date that E-Prime Check for Update checks the web. A button is provided to schedule a check for updates the next time E-Studio is opened.
Note to System Administrators
E-Prime Check for Updates settings are configured in the Windows Registry and are specific to the user logged into the system. Check for Updates can be configured so that the settings modified affect every user who logs into the machine. Additionally, they can be configured so that users cannot edit the Check for Updates settings. Please contact PST Technical Support for more information on configuring E-Prime Check for Updates for global machine access instead of per-user configuration.
