Hello,

I have my Visual Update script setup as below, it finds the updates, sees the updates and update size, but fails to download the updates. Not sure what is wrong.

The web server is Server 2012 R2 running IIS 8, anonymous authentication is on, I had to add MIME types for the exe and ini files to download. Weird thing is that it worked in the past. My OS is Windows 10 Build 1709 64-bit.

Code: Select all

As an update, tested it out on a Windows 7 box and had no issues updating, seems it's a Windows 10 issue of some sort....

The issue could be that some of the files are being used by another process. In such a case, Visual Update will fail.

Not sure, but I don't believe that's the case as I have it close all open programs before trying to update. As a side note, I updated to Windows 10 Build 1803 yesterday, tried the update today and it worked without issue, so I assume it was a glitch/bug in Windows 10 Build 1709......freaking Microsoft :x

Crap!!! It turns out the updating issue was my own fault....
In the Program File box for Visual Express I had typed in <installpath>\carlex-apps.exe instead of just carlex-apps.exe so it was invalid and couldn't close the application process. The reason it worked is because I used an earlier install file by accident and when comparing the two I noticed I had entered that by mistake. :oops: :oops: :oops:

I am glad that you were able to fix the problem.
