    Popup Manager version confusion

    I happened to click on the "Check for Popup Manager Updates..." from the context menu today and it says there is a new update available. Doing a bit of checking I see that the download is for version: 1.0.1.4. However, I have 1.0.1.8P (Beta version) installed which if the numbers mean anything, it is a newer version than the alleged new one. Comparing files sizes, they are identical (127 KB). Looking at the Properties for these files offers no information as to version either. Does anyone know the release date for this alleged updated file? There is no e-mail contact information for the author, else I would have asked him. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Like many other such websites (including Microsoft's MSN Messenger!) it seems to be the work of the devil to find out what version of the software you get when downloading. Sometimes you can only find out having downloaded and installed! But the convention for Version Numbering should be maintained. The author should really have a version history available. I did note that there is an email facility hidden at the bottom of the FAQs.

    Just for interest, have you tried the Pop-up Ad Blocker that comes as part of the Google Toolbar?

    Thanks for finding the e-mail link! <IMG SRC=http://www.the-highway.com/Smileys/BigThumbUp.gif> I'll send off an e-mail to the author today.

    Sorry, I don't care for the Google Toolbar, etc.. I can access Google in several different customized ways with my present IE setup. And, Outpost Firewall Pro stops 99.9999% of the popups. Popup Manager is simply a backup and for times when I do tests with/without the Firewall (beta tester for Agnitum).

    Re: Popup Manager version 1.0.2.1

    John,

    Here's the reply I got back to my inquiry about the Popup Manager version # confusion from the owner of the program:

    <hr>The version posted on the website is 1.0.2.1. The download.com page has the wrong version listed on it.<hr>
    I just now used the "Check for Popup Manager Update..." from the program's context menu, downloaded the file directly, and installed it. Checking the "About Popup Manager" information, it indeed is now 1.0.2.1. <IMG SRC=http://www.the-highway.com/Smileys/BigThumbUp.gif>
