Is there a rogue updater out and about?

Recommended Posts

I see a VWX SP updater notice but it appears to do nothing except perhaps up date the updater?

I am not getting anything but the Updater updater. Irritating.

I downloaded the service pack last night using the Upadater and it works well. The updater now has a downloadable link to the list of bugs that has been fixed. This is great. Sadly, the bugs I reported are not on it!

Dang. Well, hopefully I can acquire access soon…

Too bad about the un-fixed bugs

@mjm It is normal for the Updater to update first. Once you update the Updater app, it will download and install the Service Pack update for Vectorworks.

This is what I find when accessing the updater site directly. does not look to me like there's an actual update.

@JuanP you have any sense of what's up in this regard?

@jblockI do not see any actual updater.  The version stamps are different for my VWX app & the updater app. The VWX app does not seem to get updated.

Also, why do I not see the updater on the website (see above screen cap)?

 

Your thoughts?

When you click More Info and the Updater opens, what happens when you click Update? This should Update the Updater so that it can begin downloading Service Pack 1. The Service Packs are no longer stand alone files that are downloaded. They are all installed through the Updater.app.

Also, I will check with our web team to update the Downloads page to reflect that SP1 has been released.

@mjm hmmm...so it looks like the Updater is not actually updating properly. If you run the Updater.app directly from the Vectorworks 2020 folder, does it do the same?

@jblockNVM, found a workaround: I moved the file named "UpdaterLog.txt" from the Vectorworks 2020 folder (stuck it on the desktop), then ran the standalone Vectorworks 2020 Updater.app and the install is chugging merrily away.

 

NB: Successfully updated 2020 to SP1

Sorry for the delayed response. Thank you for the update. That is strange that it worked after moving the UpdaterLog. My guess is there is maybe a permissions issue on that file and it can't update properly. I will let our engineering team know so they can investigate.
