Software updates

How do I know?

If a software update is available, KONNEKT informs the user with a toast, if the user has local admin privileges.

You may alternatively observe the context menu of the KONNEKT tray icon (right click), if there is a new version available.

Preview Releases

Sometimes we publish KONNEKT Preview Releases. We do this, when we are working on a new version of KONNEKT, to give customers the opportunity to try new features before those are finally released. We are happy, when we get feedback on those versions, to find bugs and improve release quality.

Preview Releases are still in development and therefore bugs may occur.

KONNEKT Preview Releases are not published via the built-in update-checker in KONNEKT. You have to manually download it. If a preview release is available, you can find it in the changelog.

Executing the update

Please follow the following steps to update KONNEKT:

  1. Reboot the machine if needed

Local admin permissions are required to execute an update of KONNEKT.

Why do I have to reboot the machine?

An important module of KONNEKT is a kernel driver. This kind of drivers can be updated during a reboot, only.

Restart vs. Shutdown

If KONNEKT setup requests a restart, please do so. Please be aware that shutting down a Windows machine and start it up again may not be equal to a restart. Many modern Windows machines use hibernation for shutdown by default. In this case driver updates may fail.

Managed FAT clients should be updated by the client management system (e.g. MEM/Intune)

Multiuser VDI servers should be updated manually by admins.
