When I launch the program, a message states:

  • "#272032255 - An update to this program is available. Do you wish to download it now?"

What does this mean?


This message will appear if an update to your program version is available for download. It's recommended to install program updates when they become available, as they often contain fixes and feature enhancements.

Click Yes to proceed to the website and download the update, or click No to launch the program.

You can also check for updates any time by navigating to Help> Download Program Updates from within the program.

Program updates are not patches: when an update is installed, the previous version is uninstalled and then the new version is installed. Library content, Preference settings, and information saved in the program’s Data folder are not affected by program updates.
