Circuit Desktop App automatic updates

Last updated:

Circuit Desktop App regularly checks for updates and downloads them automatically. When finished, the update is either automatically installed, when you are not using the app, or you are notified that an update is ready to install via:

  1. a green square that appears around your name, in the upper-right corner of the app;

  2. a pop-up notification in the system tray, if you are using the Desktop App on Windows and the app runs in the system tray.

The green square around your name remains until the Desktop App updates to the new version. The pop-up notification in the system tray goes away after a short period of time.

You can proceed with the update, by doing one of the following:

  • Navigate to the upper-right corner of the app, select the arrow beside your name and then click Update Circuit.

  • Click the Circuit icon in the system tray and select Update Circuit...

The Circuit Desktop App will be automatically restarted for the changes to take effect and updated to its new version.

Note:

If you do not perform the update within an hour after its automatic download, you will be remind to do so via a pop-up notification in the system tray, which only appears if you are using the Desktop App on Windows and the app runs in the system tray, and a pop-up notification that appears in the top-middle area of your app. You can click Install in this latter notification to restart the Desktop App and begin the installation process or Postpone to be reminded again after one hour.
