Running LiveUpdate manually

You can either set a schedule for LiveUpdate or run LiveUpdate manually at any time to check for updates. You can configure LiveUpdate to run in either Interactive mode or Express mode. Interactive mode gives you the flexibility to choose which updates you want to install. Express mode automatically installs all of the Backup Exec updates. For information about how to change the LiveUpdate mode, see the LiveUpdate documentation.


By default, LiveUpdate is configured for Interactive mode. If you change it to Express mode you must cancel the LiveUpdate session and restart it before the change takes place.

To run LiveUpdate manually

  1. On the Tools menu, click LiveUpdate.

  2. Do one of the following:

    If LiveUpdate is set for Express mode

    Click Start.

    If LiveUpdate is set for Interactive mode
