  • Check For Update / Update Avaiable

    Suggestion - If a user opens help and manually checks for an update but doesn't download it, can the "New version available!" link be activated in the upper right corner right away instead of waiting for the next auto update check on the next day?

    Hmm. I thought it already did that. Whenever it checks our site for an update, it stores the latest build number in the State.xml file. The "New version available!" link appears whenever that stored build number is greater than the running version.

      That didn't happen to me for this latest build.
      Perhaps it requires a restart of the application before the link appears?

        No, it should appear right away. Let's give it another cycle -- let me know if it happens again.

          I tried on another computer, and the link did show up right away.
          I'm not sure what happened on the first box. Thanks.

            Any chance of losing the exclaimation mark on the message?

                  At least it's not in all CAPS

                  How about "New version available... "

                  Also, what about an option for this one....

                  "Upcoming release news..."

                    I see you noticed my "release news" test. Yes, if it looks like we'll be publishing news items regularly, I'll consider an auto-check option. Historically, the only "news" we get around to publishing is new releases, so it may be a moot point.

                        Not sure if this is a bug, but thought I should report this anyway. I saw the website updaed with the version 450. I could not wait till the autoupdate runs, so I forced the manual check. It showed version 451. Which one is correct?

                        ------

                        Got another one while updating;
                        F:\....\CirrusShellEx.dll

                        An error occurred while trying to replace the existing file:
                        DeleteFile failed; code 5.
                        Access is denied.

                        ------
                        I guess I was too quick with the update. You changed the web site 2 minutes agot

                          I installed 450 then was notified and successfully installed 451. I figure a last minute change was pushed out.

                            Yes, we released 450 on Friday and 451 today. The 450 optimized build wasn't working properly.
