After Updating m-Power

Clicking the ‘Apply m-Power Update’ button begin the apply update process. Alternatively, you can manually click the “Apply Update” button. Open the Admin slider –> Version & m-Power Update. On this screen, click the Apply Update button.

If successful, you will see the following screen once the process has completed:

If there were any errors, please contact mrc Support.

This step will only need to be done in development, as your production environment does not have an interface.

To turn off the auto apply update notifications, open the mrctool.properties file located in /m-power/proddata/conf in a text editor. Set the property, check_apply_update, to false. If this property does not exist, it should read: check_apply_update=false.
