How do the automatic updates work?

M-Files automatically checks for software updates. When an M-Files update becomes available, the update is downloaded to your computer and installed automatically. You can delay the update for a limited time if you are working on something important while an update becomes available.

The feature obtains the latest update information from the update server using HTTPS on TCP port 443. This means that normally you do not need to change any firewall settings.

Note: For the automatic updates to run, local administrative permissions on your computer are not necessary.
