How do I update to the latest version of Visual-AIDD

Each month, or every 4-6 weeks, we release an updated version of the Visual-AIDD software that contains the most recent ID document additions to the library as well as various improvements, bug fixes or feature enhancements that improve the performance of the Visual-AIDD software.  There are 3 ways that a customer can get updates, please choose the option or options that best suit your business needs and inform us how you wish to receive the updates and we will deliver them accordingly.

1st Update Option: Internet connected system.  If a customer can their computer or tablet running Visual -AIDD to the internet on a regular or permanent basis, we are able to automatically download the updates to that system using ShareFile, a secure tool will download the latest update to a folder on the users desktop named "Monthly AIDD Updates & Newsletters" -  Registered users will get an email notification from ShareFile once the latest version is available.  The download will usually be complete within a few hours of the email notification, depending on the settings and internet speed.   Users will still need to double-click the update file to launch it. Please refer to the How-to-update-Visual-AIDD guide later in this section for how to install the latest version: 

2nd Update Option: No Internet or system not connected.  Once a month we will email the registered user or administrator a link to download the to the latest version from our secure ShareFile server, the email comes from - there is no need to log in or use a password, just click on the link and download the file manually. If there is not a good Internet connection for the computer running Visual-AIDD, this process can be done on any back-office or personal computer with a good connection and then the latest version file can be saved to a thumb drive and copied onto the computer running Visual-AIDD via a USB port.

3rd Update Option: This is essentially the same as 1st Option but instead of waiting for ShareFile to download the latest version file in the background, the customer admin or account manager can log onto ShareFile  ( using their AIDD registered email as the User Name and the password "12Updates” to get taken directly to the Advanced ID Detection ShareFile page where they can choose the folder “Shared Folders” to then view the folder called “Monthly Updates”, where the latest version is located. Please refer to this guide: How-to-download-the-latest-version-from-ShareFile

Please note: As soon as the latest version has been uploaded to the ShareFile Monthly Updates folder, ShareFile sends a notification (to the email address used to log in with) letting the user know it’s avaialble - this is the fastest option but requires them to log in.

Additional Terms: Advanced ID Detection uses ShareFile to upload certain data from Visual-AIDD to make improvements to the system.  You may choose to opt out of this data sharing by choosing to update via the 2nd Update Option or contacting us with your request.
