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.
