Once the installation is completed TAMobile 6 will restart.

Updating Remotely

If you are using a remote management system, you can set up a job to automatically update TAMobile 6 using a cab file. You can access the cab file from the URL below:

https://www.trackabout.com/ws/mobile/downloadupdate.asmx?k={Your Registration Key}&v={TAMobile 6 Version}

Your Registration Key can be found at the top of the Software Downloads page. When adding the registration key to the URL, be sure to add it without the dashes.

The most current TAMobile 6 version for your environment can also be found on the Software Downloads page.

Note: You should not use this method of updating TAMobile 6 remotely if a fresh install of the software needs to be done.
