What is the ShopStream Update Tool?



The ShopStream® Update Tool application downloads new software upgrades and service releases on VERUS® and VERDICT® platform types, and is also capable of updating its own program. When connected to the Internet, the ShopStream Update Tool checks to see if an upgrade or service release has become available for the diagnostic tool. This check occurs once every 4 hours. The tool also checks for updates when the device powers up. If a software upgrade or service release is available, the ShopStream Update Tool downloads it in the background. The ShopStream Update Tool is a low priority application that only downloads an upgrade when there is unused bandwidth available. If there are other applications running on the device that communicate over the network, such as a browser or instant messaging, a download may be temporarily suspended. This allows the diagnostic tool to remain fully functional.

In addition to automatic updates, the ShopStream Update Tool can also be activated manually to check for software upgrades, service releases and firmware updates. Manual operation is explained in the diagnostic tool's user manual or the ShopStream Update Tool Information Guide.
