LockXLS team is continuously working on improving LockXLS Runtime module and fixing problems reported by our customers. Each month or two new version of LockXLS Runtime is published on our website. It is recommended to install it on your PC and on your customer PC's. There is a way to automatically notify your customers about new version of LockXLS. If option Protection Options | Additional Options | Check for new versions of LockXLS Runtime on customer's PC is selected, LockXLS Runtime on customer's PC once a week will check our website for new versions. When new version appeares, your customer will be notified about it:

User has the 3 options:
  • Download and install file. LockXLS Runtime downloads setup package from our website, saves it into temporary folder and launches setup. You should only close Excel and follow steps in very simple installation wizard.
  • Remind later about installation. If you do not want to install LockXLS Runtime now, but possible you will install it later - select this option. LockXLS Runtime will wait a week and then notify you about new version.
