CS Connect: Download and apply updates

Show expandable text

For a local or network installation only

Use CS Connect to download and apply any available updates for your application.

  1. Click either File or Utilities at the top of your application and click CS Connect.
  2. Click the Connect now option.
  3. Mark the Retrieve available updates checkbox.
  4. Click the Call Now button. CS Connect logs in to our network of secure data centers and downloads all available application updates.


    • If you access your software through Virtual Office CS or Software as a Service (SaaS), you do not need to use CS Connect because the most current version of your program is always available.
    • CS Connect informs you of approximately how long the download will take, and you can choose whether or not to download the updates at that time. To cancel the call without downloading the updates, click the Cancel button.
  5. Click the Apply previously downloaded updates/licenses option.
  6. Click the Apply Now button to apply the updates.

If you are working in a Terminal Server environment, be sure to download and apply all connect updates in install mode at the terminal server. For details, see Terminal Server Best Practices for CS Professional Suite applications.
