Information Sent to Server

Ref: 0444
Which information does the updater send to Lauterbach?

In addition to the information required by the HTTP protocol, like your IP address, the TRACE32 Software Updater only sends the information needed to update the selected TRACE32 installation. This is the host OS and a list of the files that the TRACE32 Software Updater needs to download in order to update the installation.

Revert to Previous Installation

Ref: 0445
Can I revert an updated installation back to the state before the update?

Yes. The TRACE32 Software Updater moves all updated files to a backup directory (<TRACE32 system directory>/backup/<timestamp>). In order to revert the update, move all files from the backup folder back to the system directory recursively. As the Updater only makes a backup of the updated files, overwrite the new files with the ones from the backup directory.

Supported Operating Systems

Ref: 0451
Can I use the updater on my operating system?

The updater is available for following operating systems:
  • Windows Vista, 7, 8 and 10, both 32-bit and 64-bit versions
  • Windows XP, 32-bit version
  • Linux, both 32-bit and 64-bit versions. Requires GTK2.

Update Process

Ref: 0446
When does the actual update process start?

After checking the selected TRACE32 installation, the TRACE32 Software Updater will display a list of packages to be updated and the minimum required software maintenance. You can then start the update by clicking on the "Next" button, or click the "Cancel" if you decide against the update.
