Local Update Server: Subscribing to the Software Update Service

The corporate administrator can subscribe to the software update service by configuring the Updater on the local update server with the received User ID and Updater ID. The Updater command usage is as follows:

UPDSHL10 <Updater ID><Startup Flag><Update Type><Interval><User ID>


To run the Updater as the admin type without termination and check for updates every day (86,400 seconds):

UPDSHL10  0100B03FD1305A4B 1  4  86400  1234567890

To run the Updater as the admin type and install the Updater to the Windows startup:

UPDSHL10  0100B03FD1305A4B 2  4  86400  1234567890

To make it easier, the administrator may create a shortcut to execute the above command.

note NOTE: Instead of using the Updater command, you can install the Updater to the Windows startup by editing the Windows registry and creating a new key in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Current Version\Run. The key name should be the Updater ID. For example, 0100B03FD1305A4B. The value is the full path of the Updater, plus the Updater ID and the startup flag 1 including the update type 4, interval and the User ID. For example, “C:\Program Files\ABC Software\updshl10.exe” 0100B03FD1305A4B 1 4 86400 1234567890.
