This documentation refers to PhraseExpress v6 beta. The documentation for current v5 is available here.


Update Check

PhraseExpress can optionally check for updates and major new versions:


Disables the automatic update check.

This setting is not recommended as you will not be informed about newer versions and important bug fixes! We provide technical support for the latest software version only.

You will be informed about important updates that may fix critical bugs.

Important updates are released in the rare event that they are absolutely required to prevent data loss or malfunction.

This setting is recommended for companies with a conservative update policy.

Please choose this setting if you always want to have the very latest version, including minor improvements

Such minor updates are not essentially necessary but may include nice to have new features and may fix minor bugs that are not critical.

Only choose this setting if you expect a customization provided by us or if we instructed you to configure this option for technical support purposes.

Normal users should not activate this option as you may get an update that may not work in your environment or that may be erroneous.

Experimental updates have no use or benefit for normal users.

This extra setting informs you about the availability of beta versions.

You also get notifications about important updates, even if you have selected the setting minor updates.

The online update check is disabled if PhraseExpress is connected to a SQL server to prevent software version mix-up in a network environment. Use the PhraseExpress SQL Client Manager to check for updates in this case.

Proxy server

Here, you can specify a proxy server for the optional software update check and the license authorization.
