However, some programs don’t have an automatic updating feature or if it is available, this feature is generally turned off by most of the users. So you need to manually update each program.
R-Updater is a handy solution that helps you keep all of your software up-to-date with as little or as much user intervention as you'd like.
R-Updater allows you to keep tabs on the latest major releases, beta versions and updates for all of your programs, regardless of the developer or distributor. Here's how it works:
1. After installation (a portable version also available for download), launch R-Updater. The first time you run R-Updater, the software will automatically populate a list of your installed software.
2. Select the programs you'd like to update. You can select all or pick and choose which software updates to install.
3. Click "Update" to download the latest version.
