this is NOT a question - just a hint!
A few seconds ago I tried to update to the latest version of this EXCELLENT piece of software (I still love it!!!). For the first time, I received "Failed to update [...] heidisql.exe!". The program had stopped all tasks and didn't came back. Once more ... same happening, same message (something within "temp"-folder).
So, if you have the same problem, run your "heidi" as an administrator (right-mouse on icon for start-up) - after that, everything is fine and update is going well!
Just my ... nah, not even one cent! :D
@ansgar: First time ... for years - rly!
Ads were blocked - no problem. But keep in mind that developing HeidiSQL, user support and hosting takes time and money. You may want to send a donation instead.
