The Active X plug-in can be installed prior to the Update if you choose, but we ask that you NOT install it any earlier than a week prior to the Update to ensure that you are installing the latest version unless you're beta testing. If it is not installed before the Update occurs, users will be prompted to install it via the browser when they first access the new Update. Users will need Windows local machine administrator rights to the computer to install the Active X themselves.
All other client software can be installed at any time with the Update or following the Update to ensure that the most recent version is installed. We highly recommend that you always install the latest versions of the client-side software so that you have the most up-to-date and bug-free software.
