More/Check for updates not working anymore?

Hi,

For the past week or so, I have had this peculiar problem:

When I manually check for an update in the HeidiSQL app, it shows that a new update is available, downloads it (when I click the appropriate button), and then nothing more happens. The client is NOT updated. The client doesn't even exit like it used to do. I do get the Windows prompt to run the update, but after that nothing happens at all.

I have also tried locating the update file in the %TEMP% directory, but it acts just the same.

I typically check for updates about once a day, but I doubt many do that. I guess that's why the problem hasn't surfaced in the forum just yet.

I am using HeidiSQL for Win64, version 12.1.0.6565.

Cheers, Archfrog

Yes, that's a known issue in the updater binary. Sorry for the mess. I fixed issue #1616 recently, and broke the whole updater process along with that. The updater starts to run but does not show its dialog, and does nothing then. Could be you see some dead "updater.exe" processes in your task manager.

I am still sorting out the issue. Once I got this fixed, I will release a stable version, to force updates through installing the release.
