Installing and Uninstalling Apps

Updating to a higher version of one or more Apps

The IGB App Manager shows the version number of every App in the right pane. If a higher version of an App is available and the higher version works with the version of IGB you are running, then IGB shows an option to upgrade to the higher version when you select it. Also, the Upgrade All button in App Manager becomes active.

To upgrade to a higher version of an App, select the App in the left pane and click Update. 

To update all Apps, click Upgrade All. 

Note that once you upgrade an App, you can not install a lower version of an App.
