Upgrading to the Next Build..

Updating Ancestral Quest to the Latest Build

Open up your own Ancestral Quest program to do a build update.
The first thing one needs to do is to check to see if there is an update for you. Go to the Internet menu located at the top of the screen, and click on Check for Latest AQ Release. This will bring you to the Ancestral Quest website.

Once the website comes up, it will tell you one of two things:
1) Your copy of Ancestral Quest is up to date
2) Your program needs to be updated. If this is the case, then right-click on AQ14s.exe.

In the right click menu, select Save link as..for Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome. For Internet Explore, Select Save Target as...

In the Save As menu, select the Desktop as you download destination. This is to make sure you are able to easily find the installer in just a short time.

Minimize your Internet browser to get it out of the way. You can do this by clicking on the minimize button which is located in the upper right-hand corner of your screen. It's the minus button that is just to the left of the X.

Close Ancestral Quest by clicking on the X in the upper right-hand corner of your screen. We need to do this because the installer is not able to run properly if Ancestral Quest is open.

Now you are ready to install the update. On your Desktop, double click on the AQ14s icon, which will begin the installation setup.

To follow the rest of the steps please click here.

Remember Ancestral Quest is fully FamilySearch Certified!

Comments and questions are always welcome!

Happy Ancestraling...
