Three steps to set up UpdateStar Premium Edition
Getting started with UpdateStar Premium is straight-forward and a five minute investment. But you will profit from the service UpdateStar Premium provides every day.
Step 1: Download, install and launch UpdateStar
Please visit our download page to download the installation file. Free and Premium use the same installer.

Afterwards follow the installation wizard instructions and finish the installation on your PC.


Now you can launch UpdateStar for the first time on your computer, for example by double-clicking on the UpdateStar icon on your desktop.
Step 2: Get your license for UpdateStar Premium Edition
To test-drive our Premium service with 20 times as many updates and many more features, you will need a Premium Edition license. You can immediately get your Premium license for only $34.95 from our online shop. We offer an unconditional 30 day money back guarantee. Or you request a free trial license here.

Once you received your Premium License via email you can enter the license code under the "Premium Edition" menu of the UpdateStar client.

Step 3: Scan for available updates 
Now you can begin with your first scan for available updates for all of your programs by clicking on the "Update Programs" icon in the menu. Alternatively you can use the "Search for updates" button in the center of the "Start page". The first scan will also activate your Premium Trial License.


The scan for updates will finish after a short while and the scan results will be shown. You may start to download available updates shown by clicking on the program names or switching the view to "Program List" in the menu.

That's it. UpdateStar Premium delivers your updates as well as minor upgrades right on your computer from now on.
