Restarting the FuseWorks Updater

From time to time the SBS Updater may require a restart.

To restart the FuseWorks Updater:

Step 1: Click the Windows Start menu button

Step 2: Type services.msc > click Services App

Step 3: Locate FuseWorksUpdater in the list of services (you can left click any service, and tap the "f" key on your keyboard to jump down the list)

Step 4: Right click FuseWorksUpdater > click Start

Step 5: If the above is greyed out, right click Stop > then attempt to right click > Start again.

Step 6: We recommend changing Startup Type to Automatic (Delayed Start) - this will now be default on installation.

Step 7: A small window will pop up with a progress bar, once that has finished the FuseWorksUpdater service should display as Running in the status column.

Step 8: Re-open FuseDocs > go to Settings > click Check Update Status.
