Updating Bluescape for Windows Wall Client

Bluescape regularly releases new features or bug fixes. If you are using version 19.11.01 or later, the Bluescape for Windows Wall client automatically prompts you to update upon a new release.

Note: To ensure you receive the automatic updates each release, we recommend that you leave your Windows controller/PC turned on overnight for at least one night every month.

How do I determine the current Bluescape version?

To check your Bluescape for Windows version:

  1. Tap the System Info link at the bottom left of the Lobby.

  2. The System Info panel opens with the current release version listed in the Release line.

To manually apply an available update:

  1. Log in to the Windows Wall computer as an administrator.

  2. Right-click the Bluescape Enterprise icon located on the desktop.
