The launch application includes the ability to remotely update other Hippotizer systems on the network. This is accessed from the advanced tab of the launch app.

Note: In order for Remote update to function, Hippo Launch must be running on all target machines.

The remote update button will launch a separate application to set up and process the network updates.
