If you're running Silhouette Studio and you're relying on that little feature to make sure you're running the latest version of Silhouette Studio - you're making a huge mistake. It doesn't work the large majority of the time.
In fact I'd be willing to bet my much-needed morning cup of creamer with coffee that at least half of you reading this right now aren't running the most up-to-date version of Silhouette Studio....despite believing you are!
Let me show you what I mean...
When I open up Silhouette Studio and go to the Help Menu and click "Check for Updates"...
I get a window that tells me "No updates are available"...
The problem is, when I check my current version of Silhouette Studio, I can see I am running Silhouette Studio V3.7.206. That's an old version of the software.

I know it's an old version of Silhouette Studio because when I cross-check on the Silhouette America website, I find the most most up-to-date version is actually Silhouette Studio V3.8.088.
This is why it's so important that you routinely check for Silhouette Studio updates - which often fix bugs, make the software more stable and add new features - directly from the Silhouette America website. It's also best that you download the latest version of the software directly from the Silhouette America website and not through the software.
