I have TMG Gold vs 8.08.  When I click "Check for update" it says "Your software is up to date"

 

I know there is a version 9, so what is going wrong here?

 

Thanks for any suggestions

Bil,

 

The "Check for Update" feature in TMG, like other programs I've used, only tells you about fractional (free) updates to the current version. So it's telling you that your copy of TMG8 is current. What it's not saying is that there is a new paid version, a totally new program, available. I agree this is somewhat misleading, but it seems to be the industry convention.

Said another way it is telling you that you have the most up-to-date version of Version 8 that exists. It never tells whether there is a newer major version.
