The following features are available in the Help menu, which allow you to make sure you always have the latest version of the Slide program.
Check for Slide Updates
From the Slide menu, select Help > Product Updates > Check for Slide Updates. This will connect you to the Rocscience website, and will determine if you have the latest version of the program. If not, you will be able to download the latest version for free, if it is a minor program upgrade (i.e. bug fixes).
Check for Rocscience Updates
To check for the latest versions of ALL Rocscience software that you have installed on your computer, select Help > Product Updates > Check for Rocscience Updates.
Check for Updates Automatically
By default, each time you start Slide, the program will attempt to connect to the Rocscience website in order to check for the latest version of the program. To turn this feature OFF:
From the Slide menu, select Help > Product Updates and turn OFF the Check for Updates Automatically option (i.e. clear the checkbox beside the menu option).
You may want to turn this feature off, if you are seeing a "Connect To" dialog when you start the program, and you do not wish to connect to the internet, or check for an update (e.g. if you are using a laptop not connected to the internet, or you have a slow internet connection).
