Use the link and always update by downloading the latest from that page and then install over the top of the running version.

If you update it through the   program-provided update mechanism, i.e., the Help menu, the rest of the procedure is pretty automatic. If you use the link in the email, that will take you to  the download page where you can download the edition for your operating system platform,  i.e., 32-  or 64-bit.

The Help menu way is easier and doesn't leave anything hanging around, unless of course one runs the downloaded file rather than saving it first.

Respectfully disagree, Steve...

Directly updating from the Help menu via the Internet connection has been
demonstrated numerous times by users to fail during the process. It leans
heavily on the connection being reliable throughout the process and if it
does not, the update is compromised with possible bad result.

Much safer to do the download as a separate process, and then to run the
executable on the computer.

If updating from the help menu is not a viable option, VFO should eliminate the option.

Updating via the link provided yesterday usually gives the best results. I have seen situations where updating via the JAWS Check For Updates caused me to need a JAWS repair afterwords.

Hi, Maria. In certain network situations, updating via the Help Menu is the only option because of firewalls, and the need for Administrator Permission. Just because an option is provided doesn't guarantee that it is the best option for your situation.

Hi Dave,

From my own personal experience I can tell you that in all the years Jaws offered the "Check for Updates" option and where minor updates were done this way I never ever had an issue with this. After all, if there is an update of whatever size it is first downloaded before the install starts, but to each their own.

Not a viable option? People must be on tin cans and strings for it not to be a viable option.
