Updating the Test Application when prompted

There are two different types of  Testing Application update prompts. 

These are as follows:

  1. If we release a critical update you will be notified of this when you open the Testing Application, as a full-screen message will appear advising that a new update is available. You need to install this update as there have been major changes in the new release.

    To update your Testing Application select 'Update now' from within the full-screen message and the new version will be downloaded. When the update is complete, restart the Testing Application and the new version will be ready to use.

  2. If a flashing flag icon appears in the top right corner of the Testing Application when you open it, this means there is a new version available and your Application needs updating. We release an update each month so please update as soon as you can, to ensure you are using the latest version of the software.

    Update by clicking on the flag icon and choosing ’Update now’. The new version of the Testing Application will be downloaded in the background. Once the download is complete, restart the Application and the new version will be ready to use.

Users who do not have the full permissions to update the software will be asked to contact their system administrator or the person responsible for IT in their school or organisation for further assistance.

When installation and updates are handled centrally, please notify your system administrator when a new update is available.
