MapWorks & ToolPac contain a Check for Updates tool that not only applies patches to your installation, it also brings in additional tools that we add on a regular basis. To keep track of what’s been added check back here from time to time.
To run the Check for Updates tool (requires an internet connection):
- Make sure your CAD engine is shut down (because it would have the files locked and we couldn’t update them).
- Run Check for Updates under Windows Start > Programs > DotSoft > MapWorks (or ToolPac).
- Check off any CAD engines you don’t use to save hard drive space and bandwidth (MapWorks Only).
- Click the [Start] button and allow the updater to run.
If you have Windows 8.x (which did away with the Start menu for some reason), run the MapWorks Updater from the desktop.
