Folks, it actually works fine, unless anti-virus/security software interferes with it.
"Folks", no it doesn't. I was sure I'd gone over this ground before but just in case, dutifully disabled all security (Avira) anyway, and still got the same result. As you say, it's a good thing there's an FTP link. Odd how my other FTP-capable programs don't seem to have this problem, even with antivirus measures turned on?
For a good time search the forum for "update.exe" and look at the fireworks, meltdowns, imprecations, angry shouting, footie-stomping and occasional sound of breaking glass. I may not like some of these guys attitudes but they are not -all- just forgetting to turn off their anti-virus, and the symptom is a Visual C++ runtime error that could presumably be debugged, tested out and coded for to at least error out gracefully with an explanation instead of crashing. Of course, if it just blindly recommends turning off anti-V when a person already has it all off... I suppose the footie-stomping will just begin all over again, won't it?
In any case, thanks for the great update patch , we love you all for the best of our conflict simulations, and we still love you despite their small failings, none of which are the end of the world.
Have a wonderful holiday!
