Custom auto-update settings

  1. Go to Options. (To open Options from the Start screen, click Options on the left side. If you have a file open, go to the File menu, then click Options.)
  2. On the left side of the dialog box, click Auto-update.
  3. On the right side of the dialog box, select Custom.
  4. Browse to set the Path for custom update. This can be a location on your network (remember to enter the path as a UNC path), or a website (url). For example: \\mycomputer\sharedfolder or http://get.taxcycle.com/TaxCycleUpdate.
  5. Click OK to save the changes. 

Publish the auto-update file (after each software release)

  1. Download the auto-update file from the list above.
  2. Unzip the file to the shared folder on your network. This puts the two update files in the folder: Director.Xml and 6.0.30048.0.zip (or an equivalent version number). These two files must be in the  folder for the update to work. 
  3. When a new version is released, replace the Director.xml file and add the new version-number zip file. The old zip file from the previous update is not required and can be safely deleted.
