Running Web Update

  • Verify the download information by clicking on the Change button; this is located in the upper right corner of the web update program.
  • This will open the properties page. Here you can set the download path for Download Link (A), the path to the OP gdb_common folder (B), and the path to the OP Database (C). Ensure that these are pointing to the correct server before continuing.

Note: The Download Link of 19 always has the latest version.

Note: If this error is displayed: "Error read XML data from" remove the "s" in "https" in the URL box under Properties. If this does not resolve this issue, open Internet Explorer, Settings, Internet options, advanced tab. In the Security section, deselect the Do not save Encrypted pages to disk checkbox.

  1. If an update is available, a pop up box will appear signifying the available update. A brief synopsis of the update, including what version is involved, is mentioned within the box.

  1. Click OK, then the Start button and enter in your username and password to start the update.
  2. Once completed, a pop up box will appear mentioning that "all updates installed successfully." After clicking OK, and closing the Web Updater, the update will be applied once Office Practicum is opened on the OP server.
  3. The update is then applied to all individual workstations once opened on each workstation following the update.

Note: If you have workstations that do not update properly following an update on the server, please visit this page for assistance.

If a terminal server is utilized within the practice, the terminal server must be updated prior to users that are connected to it opening Office Practicum.
