gSyncit Updates

CURRENT RELEASE: v5.1.41 (March 2018)

NOTE: Close Outlook before installing.

NOTE: 64-bit version requires Outlook 2010/2013/2016 64-bit. Otherwise, install the 32-bit version of gSyncit including if using Windows 64-bit.

If you encounter a problem installing the 32-bit or 64-bit version where the installer indicates you must have a specific "bit" version of Outlook installed then please click here for details on how to address this issue.

We use rapid release cycles meaning that we release in quick/short iterations resulting in frequent updates. This is opposed to longer release cycles which would otherwise delay customers receiving fixes/updates to the software. 

We send update availability notifications via the software when determined that the update includes a critical set of changes important for maintaining stable syncing. We prefer to avoid frequent software update notifications and will continue to take steps to reduce the frequency of notifications.

While not recommended, users have the option to disable the check for updates on the gSyncit settings / general panel by unchecking the option to check for updates and install updates as they choose.

    It is highly recommened to make a backup of your Outlook and Google calendars before enabling this option during the beta period.
