➢Using the firewall and anti-virus settings, as specified here, should allow these automated updaters to function normally.
However, if you are not able to get the automated updaters to run normally, then you can use the manual updating methods below.
To manually update Q++Studio:
1.Download the current updater data file from the link qppupfilesxe3_99999.zip (this is a very large file; approximately 160 MB).
2.Copy the file, downloaded above, as is (do not open it), to the server folder Q:\Q++ServerXE3\Updates\ (the drive letter Q:\ might be C:\ or D:\, if you are not running the server version of Q++Studio).
3.Close Q++Studio on all workstations.
4.Check the modified date of the file C:\Q++StudioXE3\Utilities\Q++StudioUpdaterXE3.exe.
5.If the date is after March 27, 2020, then you can skip to step 7.
6.Otherwise, follow the steps below:
a.Download the file quu_xe3.exe.zip (file is approximately 15 MB).
b.Rename the downloaded file as Q++StudioUpdaterXE3.exe (do not try to unzip it).
c.Copy the renamed file to the folder C:\Q++StudioXE3\Utilities\.
7.Launch the Q++Studio updater normally (making sure to select the build number prepended with "F", such as F21552, for example).
8.Repeat steps 4 to 7 on every workstation (steps 1-2-3 do not need to be repeated).
The steps above will not update your licenses. To update your licenses manually, you will need to follow the steps below.
To manually install updated license files:
1.Close Q++Studio on all workstations.
2.Download the zip file containing the latest license files using the link QppLicenseFilesXE3.zip (very small file; approximately 10 KB).
3.Open the downloaded zip file QppLicenseFilesXE3.zip, and extract the 3 files, inside it, to the server folder folder Q:\Q++ServerXE3\ (the drive letter Q:\ might be C:\ or D:\, if you are not running the server version of Q++Studio).
You can now launch Q++Studio.
To manually update the database of worldwide public holidays at your site:
1.Make sure that you have installed build 21361 of Q++Studio, at least.
2.Delete the file qwhuxe3.zip, in the folder C:\Q++StudioXE3\Utilities\, if it exists.
3.Download the data file manually, using the link https://www.qppstudio.net/download/qwhuxe3.zip (file size: approximately 500 KB).
4.Copy the file downloaded in step 3, above, qwhuxe3.zip to the folder C:\Q++StudioXE3\Utilities\.
5.Close Q++Studio on all workstations.
6.Launch the Q++Studio worldwide public holidays updater normally, from any workstation (this only needs to be done once, on any one of the workstations).
