When I open Studio, is says there is an update available, but when I click “Yes” to install it, Studio shuts down but no update occurs.
Reopening Studio confirms Studio 2.0 is the installed version, no automatic notice appears to update. If I click “Check for Updates”, I am told there is one, but clicking “Yes” to install still just shuts down Studio with no update being done.
The installer framework we use is a sore spot for many of you as well as us. We are working on a replacement that will increase its reliability. Like you, if an update is available, I just want it to update.
Going from 2.0.13 to 2.1 lead to a new problem for my system. The in-program update notice worked, but the install failed. I then used the direct download method, and after uninstalling and installing the new version it failed to run with a cascade of missing installed component dialog boxes. A second reinstall from scratch also failed. I eventually discovered the advice to install the C++ distribution files from MS (vc_redist.x64.exe) and reboot. After completing that the third attempt was successful. The need for the C++ files is not a new requirement, but evidently the ones I had installed previously that let 2.0 run successfully, were not sufficient for version 2.1.
