Carefully review all additions, deletions and modifications and ensure that they are valid and expected changes.


If the changes are deemed correct, press the update button,

A prompt will appear on the screen asking if you want to override the limit this one time, Press Yes,

The update will be carried out, Close down the Schemus application, automatic updated will continue to run in the background as normal.
