The installation of latest Updates (formerly known as HotfixPacks) is highly recommended for all DocuWare systems. Your DocuWare system is always kept up-to-date by installing the latest Update.
Starting with DocuWare 7, Updates are integrated in the DocuWare installation packages.
Therefore, to get the latest version of an Update you need to download the DocuWare setup files again.

As soon as new Hotfixes are available, an updated version of the DocuWare installation package is provided, including all fixes and improvements.
With running the familiar setup routine again, the latest improvements are installed on your existing DocuWare system.
For new installations, downloading the latest version of the setup files ensures that the DocuWare system is up-to-date after finishing the installation.

- DocuWare Service user login credentials (Windows administrator)

After finishing the installation:
- Clear the browser cache
- Update the DocuWare Desktop Apps
