Auto-Update Feature

Auto-Updates is a feature available within Metalogix Essentials that allows users to have updates, that are made to the application by our development team, automatically installed on their machines. This feature can be disabled or enabled, as per your personal preference.

When starting up the Essentials program as an administrator, the Product Update Manager will pop up when new updates are available. You can choose to install the update, or decline to do so.

To uninstall Metalogix, navigate to the application's installation directory (the default location is "C:\Program Files (x86)\Quest\Essentials" or "C:\Program Files\Quest\Essentials") and double click on the Uninstall.exe file.  This will generate a wizard to begin the uninstall process.

To remove the application's workspace (the location where logs and application configuration is stored), navigate to the user home directory of the account that is licensed to use the product (for example, C:\Users\[Username]).  In this location, find and delete the directory named "Essentials".  If more than one account was licensed for the product on this computer, there will be additional "Essentials" directories in the respective user home directories which must also be deleted.
