How Does the Update Manager Work?
Software vendors use the Update Service, a product
created by InstallShield, to deliver updates to you.
Software vendors can build the ability to send you product
updates into the product or they may choose to send
you a message that an update is available from their
Web site. In either case, the Update Manager gives you
control over what updates and messages you receive.
When an application you install uses the Update Service,
the Update Manager may also installed. You can access
the Update Manager through the Start
menu by selecting Program Updates.
If the Update Manager is not installed, see the article
