What’s New in DAISY 4.3

Auto Updates

DAISY 4.3 has a new feature called Auto Updates, which changes the way DAISY software is installed on your network.

In previous versions of DAISY, both the software application and database were installed on the server. Workstation computers accessed DAISY over the network. Starting with version 4.3, the DAISY application resides on each server and workstation, while the database remains only on the server. This new installation method improves overall DAISY performance.

How It Works

With DAISY 4.3 Auto Updates, installation is a two-step process:

  1. Install the DMC Updater. This software utility enables your system to automatically receive DAISY 4.3 and future DAISY updates.
  2. Install the DAISY application onto the workstations. Installation of the application on the workstations takes place only once as part of the 4.3 update. Future updates will download to your system and install automatically.
