Updating Software

When updating to a new core version, many firewalls/antivirus programs will recognize it as a new application. It may be necessary to engage your local IT support to ensure GDS 2 is entered as an exception in these programs to allow normal functionality. GDS 2 users also need full administrative rights to install the update. If issues are encountered with GDS 2 not functioning properly, right click on the GDS 2 icon on the desktop and select “Run as administrator.”

For assistance, contact the Techline Customer Support Center (TCSC) at 1-800-828-6860 (English) or 1-800-503-3222 (French).
