Hi guys,
Following the instructions for your new download procedure, The 'check for updates' button produces "error downloading update manifest".Click OK to close. Next comes "Loader is up to date". And v.4.5.4 is shown on the Loader Welcome screen.
Any ideas? Updater says V4.5.2. Everything has worked perfectly until this time. Over to you!

Does the problem happen every time you check for updates? I've had the above happen occasionally, but it resolved itself next time I switched the computer on.

Has your Anti-Virus setup changed recently? It could be preventing the Updater connecting to the SimSig site.

Thanx for your reply, Steamer. Apologies for my inertia!
I don't think I've used the update button before.Obviously not, as this would have been seen earlier.
My Anti-Virus hasn't changed, I've tried removal and install again of Loader, But still the same symptoms.
Loader works fine with listing and opening simulations, but the update facility doesn't.
Like "Eric the Eeel", I'm out of my depth here!

I suspect there's something on your computer preventing you accessing the update server. Can you confirm that you have a stable internet connection when you're trying to upload? You probably do, but I'm just eliminating possibilities.

Assuming you do, it's probably a firewall or Anti-Virus program that's blocking the Updater. I can't help with these problems (also out of my depth!) but if you post the brand of anti virus and firewall you use, I'm sure someone else will be able to offer advice.

Broadband is with Vermin..... Sorry, Virgin! (can't think why I said that)
A/V was ZoneAlarm. Currently Defender 'til I get a new one.
I'll have a look if I can see anything obvious in the 'Protection' Dept.
Thanx for taking the time to reply!
