Automatic update modes

You may choose any suitable way to update you ConEmu installation

Automatic update (internal)

ConEmu is able to update itself if it was installed by Installer or 7-Zip package.

All what you need is to enable Automatic updates or just call ‘Help > Check for updates’ from SystemMenu.

ConEmu’s internal update is using ConEmuC for accessing external sites. When automatic update check is issued, ConEmu tries to download version.ini with information about current versions available, and than, after confirmation, it downloads appropriate Installer or 7-Zip package.

If download procedure fails for some reason please read Troubleshoot internet issues article.


Chocolatey is a Machine Package Manager, somewhat like apt-get, but built with Windows in mind.

With help of Chocolatey you may execute the command, which will download the Installer and do the update by msiexec.

choco upgrade conemu

Manual update

If ConEmu failed to download update package, you may download the package yourself from the primary download site.

Than you may trigger update procedure by Dropping downloaded package:

  • either on the ConEmu shortcut on the desktop;
  • or on the ConEmu’s window title bar or tab bar.

You may use automatic update by 7-Zip package or PortableApps’ standard method by selecting downloaded ConEmu_*_English.paf.exe.


Note Version of the available package may be obsolete because it’s not maintained by ConEmu’s authors. Anyway, the command to update MSYS2 package is below.

pacman --needed -S conemu
