How does Force Streamer update work when it's enabled?

The Splashtop Streamer and the Spashtop client app for Windows and for Mac are bundled into every new release of Splashtop Center. Users are given a specific Splashtop Center URL, to download the newest Streamer and Client app, in their Invitation Email.

When the Force Streamer Update checkbox is checked, the Force Streamer Update button will be enabled as shown above. In this case, the Splashtop Center upgrade won’t replace the Windows Streamer with the newly bundled version. On the other hand, when the Force Streamer Update checkbox is not checked, the Force Streamer Update button will be disabled, and the Splashtop Center upgrade will replace the Windows Streamer, updating it to the latest bundled version. Please note that currently, the Windows Streamer is the only software that supports the Force Streamer Update function. The IT Administrator can still use the Modify buttons, shown above, to update the other software items anytime. Once modified, they will be reflected on the Download page of the Splashtop Center Web Portal.

When the Force Streamer Update checkbox is checked,click the Force Streamer Update button to open the Streamer Update dialog box shown below. Select Update to all computers if you want to push the Windows Streamer update to all computers in the list.
Or, if you only want to force the Streamer update into certain computers, click the Update to selected computers button, and then select the corresponding checkboxes in the Update column for the desired computers.
