Scan/US Software Updates

The page you are reading now is where to check to see if you need to install a software update. The software build numbers and database release dates shown above are the information you need to check, against what is installed on your own system. We DO email everyone when updates are available, so you don't need to check back to this page, but since email is not foolproof we provide this information as a convenience so you can check for yourself.

Please email "support" at "scanus.com" or call the 800 number to request an update, or if you think you may need one. Here's something to keep in mind when you do install your update: you must have Administrator privileges on your computer in order for update setups to install correctly. Therefore, if your IT department controls such computer functions in your company, you must obtain your IT department's help before you can download and install these update setups.

Note: How Software Updates work

All software releases are "cumulative": In other words, they contain everything up to that time. If you need to re-download the base system, it will be just as up-to-date as if you run the "update" software afterwards. So, you don't have to do that. The "software update" setups are just a convenience, which we will send to you when necessary, so you don't have to re-download the whole thing.
