Software Updates

Updated October 07, 2016

This article applies to:
  • Terrain 3D
  • Terrain Forestry
  • RoadEng Civil
  • RoadEng Forestry
  • Softree Optimal

Softree uploads “micro updates” of the software periodically. RoadEng® and Terrain Tools® have an automatic update version checker that accesses the web to look for updates.

The default is set for daily. When a new update is available you will receive a Softree Product Update message. Press the More Info… button to review the enhancements and fixes since the previous version.

If you are not receiving Softree Product Update prompts, chances are the Check for Updates may be disabled (see Changing the Default below).

To manually check for updates:

  • Open any module.
  • Select Help | Softree on the web | Check for updates.

Changing the Check for Updates Default

The default is set to daily and can be changed to weekly, monthly or never.

    Open the Terrain Module
  • Click on Module | Setup from the top tool bar
  • Select General Tab
  • In the 'Check for Updates' dropdown, adjust the default to your preferred frequency (daily, weekly, monthly, never)

Running an older version of the software?

If you are running an older version (Version 5 and higher) periodic updates are still available for major bug fixes. Please note, improvements to your overall functionality will not change unless you upgrade to the current version.

You can also upgrade your software. Please contact our sales team to discuss upgrade options.
