MSI Package Builder can check for updates automatically every day or once a week. To enable an automatic checking for updates, check the Automatically check for updates option and choose the checking frequency between Daily and Weekly. You can also define if the program should check for major updates by changing the Automatically check for major updates option value.

If you use a proxy server to connect to the Internet and the required proxy settings are not provided, an automatic check for updates will not take place.

The application may display warnings and hints, and you can choose if you would like each one to be shown again. On this page, you can reset all the remembered decisions to the defaults so that all the warnings and hints are shown. Use the Reset All Remembered Decisions button to this purpose.
