@sohbinong - I have heard that the ARL CAB file hosted on the PLC is not getting reliably updated on a content delivery network used to deliver that content, and from some parts of the world you may see an old version of the file. The provider of the content delivery network is working on it, but I don't know of an ETA for getting that resolved.

I would recommend that that the following URL is a better one to use for downloading latest ARL content rather than going through the  PLC: https://www.managesoft.com/support/Compliance/RecognitionAfter82.cab.

This URL is appropriate to use regardless of whether you are downloading the CAB file manually or automatically. It does not use the same content delivery network as the PLC.
