How to Update Verbum

This article will show you how to make sure your Verbum software is up to date and update it if it is not.

Note: With Verbum 10 and later, the software should update automatically when new versions become available unless you have explicitly prevented this from happening.

Checking Version Levels

Click the three dots icon in the toolbar and click the About Verbum option.


This shows a panel with a range of information including software versions


The number below SOFTWARE indicates the current software version while the color indicator will be green if Verbum is up to date or red if it is not.


Updating Verbum

If Verbum is not up to date, you can use the update now command in Verbum to download all updates including both software and books.

Once the application update has been downloaded, you will be prompted to restart the application to apply the update.


Troubleshooting Problems with Updating the Software

There are a number of things to check if the software will not update.

  1. Verbum will not run on some older operating system versions. See this article to see minimum requirements and ensure that your operating system satisfies those.

  2. Verbum has the concept of an update channel and, unless running beta software, this should normally be set to default. To ensure this is the case, set it from the Verbum command box:
