Like in other software, this feature allows wysiwyg to check for updates online, every time it starts. Once an update is found, it may be downloaded and installed immediately, or postponed. It is strongly recommended that this option is left enabled, but if desired, it can be disabled by accessing the OPTIONS menu > Application Options > General tab. Manual checks for Updates may be performed via the HELP menu, but only while on the Welcome Screen. Please note that AutoUpdate will only update the current version of wysiwyg. In other words, when the next version (eg. R45) is released, its installer will have to be downloaded from the Members Only Area.
