When you run Visual Paradigm, checking of possible updates is done in the background. If there are available updates, you will be notified through the message pane. Then, you can perform an update to advance to the latest build.
Updating when running Visual Paradigm

- You can click on the message to start updating. If not, when you restart Visual Paradigm. You’ll see the following dialog box:
- By clicking Yes, the Visual Paradigm Update program will be launched. An update will be performed.
