Updating SMART

After proceeding, please notice that SMART will launch the R package installation for the necessary libraries. This only performs once and will not run for the future executions.

SMART makes use of the ClickOnce Deployment method which enables it to self-update to the newest version. With this strategy, SMART can be installed and run with minimal user interaction. The only requirement to trigger the update is to have internet access at the moment you launch the application.
