    Update (yes/no) dialog box not to halt folding.

    Post by Transisto on Sat Jan 01, 2011 3:25 am

    There has been many updates lately. a few time I caught machines not folding because of the update dialog.
    Say after a power outage reboot.

    Thank You and Happy new year

    I have windows set to notify me of updates, but not auto-magically install them. Then I can install them at MY convenience. It just might work for you too. Smile

    Ahhh, my bad. Probably why the Tracker guide I found initially suggested not checking for updates, although that was for an older version.

    Seems like a time-out on the update prompt could be a pretty simple fix. Or maybe just a non fold stopping info box that an update was available, and then go do it manually.

    Happy folding!

    There are 3 radio buttons in the setting for the tracker relating to updates.

    Do not check for updates on startup

    Check for updates, prompt for install

    Check for updates, install automatically

    I would suggest checking the first one and make sure to follow the twitter or check back on this site for updates periodically.

    I don't think a change is necessary in this case. If you have the Tracker set to start folding automatically then you should either disable the automatic updater entirely or select the option to install updates automatically. (which will allow folding to resume after the update is installed with no prompts)
