Published: 22 March 2016

A few times per year, IT sends out important updates for your computer. The updates fix security holes and bugs so that your computer works as intended.

When it's time to run the update, a window will be visible on your screen with the heading LTU - update package for Windows computers.

NOTE: The update can only be done when you are connected with network cable at LTU or via VPN.

You can start the update by clicking Start installation now. The update will start immediately and usually takes about 10-15 minutes.

It is also possible to schedule a suitable time during the day for when an automatic update to start.The last selectable time is 18:00. After that time the update will start automatically after 15 minutes.

A notification pops up five minutes before a scheduled reboot. This is to remind you to save documents or to reschedule the update gor a later time if you have changed your mind.

We recommend that the base package has been updated before we troubleshoot your computer, since these updates are performed to fix known errors.
