It should be noted that once the software gets updated, all the important company files automatically get installed in the correct location on the system.

Steps for automatic update

The automatic update method checks Intuit services for new updates. With this method, the updates are downloaded only when the software is not used. In order to check whether the software is running or not, then, in that case, this method itself downloads updates from the intuit server.
