Automatic update failure

Post by Roadrunner » 02 Apr 16 15:50

PS ask me if I would like to update to 3.2.0.2075 from 2073 and I want that. The web updating process will hang and dosen't download any file (0.0% downloaded). I have tried to restart the computer and even opened my firewall.
Any suggestion to solve this. Are there any way to download the patch manually?

Could have been a temporary problem.
Try it again. If it does not check for updates automatically you can force it with 'check for update' in the Help menu.

If it still doesn't work you can download the latest version from the user control panel at https://cp.idimager.com/

Beware, in some respects the update is a downgrade - I wish I could roll back.
- no previous experience with Idimager whatsoever...

In which respects...? Are you suggesting in the newer build some features were removed?

Thanks for pointing that out.
That, however, is not a downgrade, it is a bug (and I personally came across it in versions prior to 2075).
2075 contains a few other bugs too, one of the most annoying is the jumping cursor, when using CTRL+F, generally the way how the efficiency of the search algorithm has decreased, the fact that synonyms are no longer found if not spelled out completely...

That said, every release contains bugs. Something gets improved, other things might also be affected. In that regard 2075 is no different from other new versions.
A downgrade in my opinion would be the deliberate removal of some functionality by the programmer. I much doubt it was Hert's intention to modify quality settings for viewing DNGs.

Thanks for your answers.
The problem was temporary, today I could use the automatic update process.
