When a new version of the Syncplicity Windows desktop client is available, you are prompted to upgrade. A manual upgrade to a new version requires you to have administrative rights on your computer.
TIP: Upgrade to the latest version to use new features and stability and performance improvements.
You can upgrade the client immediately or click Remind me later to dismiss the prompt. If you postpone, Syncplicity alerts you in 24 hours or when the client is re-started.
The Syncplicity Windows client requires that Microsoft .NET Framework 4.6.2 is installed on your computer before you can install or upgrade the client. If the installer detects that .NET Framework 4.6.2 is not installed, the installer prompts you to download the software and install it. Afterwards, the installer proceeds to install the client.
If you do not upgrade periodically, older client versions become unsupported. In this case, you must upgrade to the latest version to continue using Syncplicity on your computer.
If your company administrator sets up a Client Update Policy, depending on the selected settings the Syncplicity client will:
- Automatically install all updates
- Automatically install only updates required to keep Syncplicity online
- Not install any Syncplicity updates automatically
