it is a consistent issue for me for the last several versions. I am sure that it is something specific to my configuration; but I have been unable to run down the cause. (I am not new to TC, I have been using it since at least v7....
The immediate issue could be resolved if the installer didn't force a check for a newer version and would simply allow you to upgrade.
Mr. Conn, I was probably not clear in my earlier response. I have never had a problem with the installer in previous versions. But, the Updater would freeze in the past couple of major releases if I attempted to "Check for Updates." So, I was assuming that v16 must be calling the Updater during installation. Any suggestions as the why the Updater doesn't complete and could this problem be the same mechanism failing?
No, I run it from an account with admin privileges. I had seen that thread previously and fiddled with the .ini file since I suspected permissions too. Periodically for the past year or so I have attempted to troubleshoot the update issue to no avail. But, it really didn't cause me heartburn until v16 because I can't install the new version now. Thanks for the suggestions though....
That was a very insightful answer. After the attempt to check for a newer version timed out, the installation proceeded normally. Thank you! (I wish I had thought of that.)
Actually, my first task last night was to see if the updater worked in v16. I also had a fresh look at the new updater.ini file which appears to be correct for the new directory names. I still doesn't time out though if I disable my network adapter.
