ALWAYS UPGRADE TO THE LATEST VERSION - UPGRADES ARE FREE AS LONG AS YOU STAY CURRENT!!!
|When you choose the Check for Upgrade option on the information menu, Image Surfer Pro will access information at www.ImageSurferPro.com in order to determine what the latest release available is. It will compare the information about the newest release with the release you are currently running and display a summary of the comparison in a window similar to the one on the left.
In the Upgrade Options box there are two possible options. The top option is for upgrading to a new free edition while the bottom version is for upgrading to a new registered edition. Each option will be enabled if a newer version of that edition of the software is available.
If there is no newer version of the software of that type, the corresponding option will be grayed out in the form. If both options are grayed out, then you are running the latest version of the software.
Read the text of each option carefully before deciding which option to choose. The options are radio buttons and selecting one option will automatically unselect the other option. By default the option to upgrade to a registered version will be selected.
This field will be checked if your user configuration setting is enabled. Changing the field on this form will change your user configuration.
When checked Image Surfer Pro will contact www.ImageSurferPro.com once each day it is used to determine if a newer version of the software exists. This does not cause your browser display to navigate or change in anyway, the connection is made silently.
If Image Surfer Pro determines there is either a newer Free or Registered version of the software available from www.ImageSurferPro.com then the Upgrade dialog will be displayed.
If you choose to ignore the upgrade (with the Cancel button), you will want to make sure this feature is disabled or you will be reminded daily to upgrade.
The Upgrade Now button behaves differently depending upon which option you choose and whether or not you have indicated you have a confirmation code for the new release.

If you are running the free version of Image Surfer Pro, you will want to disable the auto checking feature or you will be prompted daily to upgrade to the registered version because the the additional functionality in the registered version is considered an upgrade to the free version.
The auto checking functionality is primarily meant to be used by registered users who want to know when a new version is available without having to manually check.
NOTE: As long as you always upgrade to the newest version the upgrade is FREE! Once you miss an upgrade however, future upgrades go back to the regular price.
