EViews Updates
IHS Global Inc. occasionally releases patches to the EViews program, and we strongly recommend that you keep your copy of EViews as up-to-date as possible.
EViews includes an automatic updating feature that can check for new updates every day, and install any update that may be available. The automatic update feature can be disabled from the Options/EViews Auto-Update from Web item in your main EViews menu. You can also manually check for updates from within EViews at any time by selecting Check now... under the EViews Auto-Update from Web menu item, or by selecting EViews Update from the Help menu.
You may also check for updates to the EViews program or for updates to supplementary components such as the EViews documentation or sample data and programs manually by visiting the Download section of the EViews website (www.eviews.com).
