For several days the TCC "Help" "Check for Updates" option has been returning the following Error popup.
Invalid updates configuration file. The first line of the .INI file should be ";aiu;".
This happens on both systems where TCC is installed.
TCC 9.02.151 Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]
TCC Build 151 Windows XP Build 2600 Service Pack 3
Registered to xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx 2 - 2 System License
AFAIK there have been no configuration changes to either system since updating to 9.02.151. -- other than routine updates to Opera, Firefox2, TortoiseSVN, and UltraEdit.

What do I need to do to get "Updates" working again? Thanks.

What are the contents of your TCMDUPDATE.AIU file?
It turns out that the Error pop up was correct because the file contained:
<h1>Not Found</h1>
<p>The requested URL /downloads/v9/tcmdupdate.aiu was not found on this server.</p>
<hr />
<address>Apache/2.0.46 (Red Hat) Server at Port 80</address>
I removed (i.e. renamed) TCMDUPDATE.AIU and was gratified to find that (1) Check for Updates was working again and (2) TCMDUPDATE.AIU had been recreated with appropriate contents.

I'm sorry that I didn't find and check TCMDUPDATE.AIU before posting but it has provided an opportunity to thank you for the customary prompt and professional support that enhances an exceptional application.
