if you select continue; and then restart the application it works without the error message from that point on

You know, there was once a television series that ran for four seasons that had as a major premise this concept: Have you tried turning it off and on again.



A cold start fixed whatever the problem was. The thing is, I rebooted it after it installed some Office updates when I went looking for .Net updates and THAT didn't.

Sorry for the sirens.

I removed some old settings and it prolly didnt agree with the app's user.settings update command, since the value is no longer defined.

Clearing the User.settings should clear it up

or pressing OK to continue, then closing the APP to generate the new settings file then re-opening.

Thx for the update. Great work SkateZilla!

I would sugest to paint the following message in red in the GUI:
Application Status: Update available

Is it an option to make the updater update itself (after confirmation) in the near future?

I am having issues with the "External Apps", it just does not save che checkmark to enable them to start w/DCS... this happens for SRS and the other 5 applications I have defined there. If I close and reopen the GUI it remembers the paths but deletes the checkmarks.



Seems like it's not saving any information about that particular state in the user.config file.

At one point in late 2018 the update check and download was automatic, but it was removed due to webhost reporting the Updater aa malicious software.

the update check was also changed to manual because users did like the update prompt.

Im working on new solutions along with some other new features.
