Keeping your installation up-to-date.

About this task

Subscription updates include new types of web application exploitation techniques and bug fixes. It is recommended that you install these files as soon as you receive notification of their availability.

AppScan® periodically checks for updates on the HCL website and notifies you when new updates are available. You may also initiate an update search.

After AppScan has detected new available updates you are given the opportunity to download and install the new update files on your machine.


  1. On the Toolbar, click the Check for Updates icon

    AppScan checks for updates. If an update is available the Install button becomes active. (If your version of AppScan is up-to-date the button remains grayed out.)

  2. To install the update, click Install.

What to do next
