How do I keep the EC2Config service updated on my Windows instance, in keeping with EC2 best practices?

It’s a best practice to keep EC2Config updated to the latest version. EC2Config assists with Windows activation and the successful execution of userdata and CloudFormation tasks, among other things.

You can update manually by following the instructions at Installing the Latest Version of EC2Config, or update EC2Config by using Amazon EC2 Run Command.

Note: In order to update EC2Config, the instance needs Internet access either via a NAT instance or Internet gateway.

To ensure you’re notified when a new version of EC2Config is available, see Subscribing to EC2Config Service Notifications.
