Checking versions

Checking the version means:
  • select the executable of your application that will be used as reference for updating the applications that are already deployed.
  • select the minimum version allowed to operate without update. To force all the users to update the next time they start their application, all you have to do is copy the current version into the minimum version.
See Checking the versions for more details.

  • the users currently connected to the application,
  • for each connected user:
    • the computer used to start the application,
    • the version of the application used.
