On a terminal server, memoQ can be automatically updated to a newer build in a scheduled manner. automatic updating does not need user interaction: it is possible that none of the memoQ users on the terminal server are actually allowed to update installed programs.

Using the Auto-update category of the Terminal server configurator tool, you can configure the schedule to install automatic updates, and you can also set up e-mail notification that is sent to the server administrator when updates are installed.

How to begin

Start the Terminal server configurator tool, then, in the Category list, click Auto-update.


By default, memoQ checks for updates automatically. To control this, use the Check for updates periodically check box. It is checked by default; to turn off automatic update checks, clear the check box.

Scheduling update checks

Use the settings in the Update schedule section to set a schedule for checking updates. Choose how to do it using the two radio buttons:

Manually schedule auto-update using Task Scheduler: Choose this radio button to schedule the update using the Task Scheduler service of Windows. Do not choose this option unless you are very familar with scheduling tasks with Windows. You need to schedule a program called TSAutoUpdate.exe that resides in the C:\Program files\Kilgray\memoQ-2013-R2 folder. (On 64-bit systems, this folder is C:\Program files (x86)\Kilgray\memoQ-2013-R2.)

Schedule the task for me: This is the default setting. Choose a starting time and a frequency using the controls below the radio button.

Installing updates automatically

memoQ, more precisely, the memoQ auto-update service will automatically install any new updates if you choose the automatically install updates radio button in the automatic updates section. With this setting, new updates are always installed shortly after they are released.

Setting up notifications of available updates

If you wish to control the installation of the updates more tightly, you can choose to be notified when an update is available, and install the update yourself by logging on to the terminal server, and starting the process. If you choose this, the auto-update service sends an e-mail to an address you specify, whenever a new update is available.

Click the Send e-mail when an update is available radio button to start setting up notifications.

Use the following controls to configure sending the e-mail:

Address: Type the e-mail address where the notifications are sent.

SMTP settings section: Type the address of your e-mail server in the Server URL box. If the e-mail server uses authentication, type a user name and a password in the User name and Password text boxes. If the port number is different from the default, type it in the Port text box. Click the SSL check box if the e-mail server uses SSL encryption.

To test the SMTP settings, type your own e-mail address in the Send test e-mail to text box, and click the Send test mail link.

Sender section: Specify the name and e-mail address of the sender of the notification e-mails. Type the e-mail address and the sender name in the Address and the Name text boxes. You might want to specify an e-mail address that can in fact be checked for replies.
