Check for Update

Click the File | Online | Check for Update command to check for the most recent version of Surfer. If there is an update available (e.g. Surfer 16.0 to Surfer 16.1), you can follow the directions to download and install the free update. An update contains minor changes to the program. Normally, no new features are added in updates. See the Golden Software website version information page for a list of changes. Surfer can be updated to the latest minor version (e.g. 15.x) regardless of maintenance status.


Before using this command, make sure your computer is connected to the internet. Follow the directions in the dialog to complete the update if an update is available. If you have any difficulties with the update, please contact technical support.


Automatic Update

Surfer automatically checks for updates once every seven days by default. This preference can be adjusted at any time using the File | Options command. Automatic updates allow the program to periodically check for an available update. Enabling automatic updates will allow your copy of Surfer to always automatically stay up-to-date.


Check for Internet Update



If your maintenance license is active, you can upgrade to the next major version (e.g. Surfer 15 to Surfer 16) by clicking the File | Online | Check for Update command. If your maintenance has expired and you'd like to renew your maintenance, contact Golden Software.
