Does PGP Universal Server have the ability to push PGP Desktop client upgrades?
PGP Desktop clients synchronize policy to the PGP Universal Server and during that process, if a new version is available and the setting is configured to allow client updates, the PGP Desktop client receives a notification regarding the update and can then "download" the new version. The update will be installed over the top of the existing PGP Desktop installation.
The user must have administrator rights on the computer, otherwise no prompts will appear indicating a new version is available.
To check if the PGP Universal Server has been configured for client updates:
1. Click on Consumers > Consumer Policy and then click on the appropriate Consumer Policy.
2. Next, click the Edit button next to General.
3. On the top of the General page, check to see if "Notify users of software updates and automatically download" is checked.
Once the installation completes, the user must reboot the computer.
