Autoupdate allows you to pick up the latest updates for Instant JChem without needing to re-install. Autoupdate only applies to the installer based versions of IJC, not the Java Web Start versions which are updated automatically. You access it by using Tools -> Plugins. Documentation on using autoupdate can be found here .


Automatic Update Center functionality will be removed from Instant JChem after version 18.8.0. This means that version 18.8.0 will be the last version offered through Automatic Update Ceter. To update our software after version 18.8.0, you need to download the software from the web and perform reinstallation, or if desired, a clean reinstallation.

titleImportant note for Windows Vista users
When running autoupdate, you must run IJC as an administrator to avoid problems when installing later versions.
