You can access the most current Software Release for the version you purchased until a new version has been released (every June 1st). We recommend that your Windows Updates have all been installed and that you verify the System Requirements for Boulevard® before proceeding.
Option 1 (Recommended option for most users)
Use this option if you have Boulevard 2019 or higher installed. If you are not prompted, you may need to Verify Your Credentials in Boulevard first. If you continue to have any trouble using this method, we recommend that you add Boulevard as an exception/exclusion to your anti-virus software settings, temporarily disable it, or try Option 2 below.
- Ensure you've taken a backup and that Boulevard is completely closed.
- From your computer, click the shortcut to re-launch your Boulevard software.
- When the Auto Update form appears, click Download Now. View
- Click Yes on the User Account Control form that appears. View
- A Please Wait message will then appear letting you know that the software release is downloading. The amount of time to download greatly varies depending on your internet speed. View
- When the installation process begins, follow the on-screen prompts, then click Finish.
Important Note: If the Auto Update form appears again (with the Download Now button), that usually indicates the service release did not properly install. Repeat the steps from above and if given the options to Repair or Remove during the installation wizard, select Repair and follow through the installation wizard again.
Use this option if you are a brand new Boulevard user, have never previously installed Boulevard on your current computer, are transferring to a different computer, or have trouble installing using Option 1.
