    Re: SIW updated

    I ran the program (version 1.60) and asked it to check for updates. It did and upon download, yielded an error that the program was already in use. Aaarrrggghh! It aborted and didn't do the install/update and I don't know where the file(s) went. I'll just do it manually.

    Edited:The file (siw.exe.$$$) was in the Temp directory of my Windows profile folder. It should be "smarter" than that, but oh well, job completed.

    My auto-update ran OK. siw.exe.$$$ went into Cocuments and SettingsAlanLocal SettingsTemp (and it's still there BTW). Maybe the problem arose from some other source?

    <img src=/S/hello.gif border=0 alt=hello width=25 height=29> Joe! I was just to their site a few days ago but didn't catch the fact it was updated. I ran the Help/update within the program and it went right through and said "Updated successfully" <img src=/S/clapping.gif border=0 alt=clapping width=19 height=23>

    Re: SIW updated

    Hmmm... I guess the reason I might have had a problem is that I have my copy (ever since I first downloaded it) in a directory on my drive called C:Utilities and the internal updater might not have been able to find it. At any rate, since it really doesn't require installation, I just renamed and move the $$$ one and all's well that ends well.

    And, BTW, thanks for the "update" Joe!

    Mine is in a non-standard folder too - "C:Program Files_Utilitiessiw.exe", if that's of any significance.
