Can't Update DCS

DCS does not update automatically and it will not update from the "Eagle Dynamics\DCS World\Update DCS World" on the Start menu. A window appears briefly saying "Searching for Updates" then it disappears and nothing happens.

 

Any ideas?

I believe that happened to me in the past. You may try to do this at your own risk:

 

Go to, C:\Program Files\Eagle Dynamics\DCS World, BACKUP and delete the following files and relaunch DCS: autoupdate.cfg , autoupdate.dat and the autoupdate logs.

 

I *think* that's the way i fixed it.

Also, make sure you disable your AV. I have Bitdefender, and it messes with the updater if I don't set it to "ignore" the .exe before running or simply disable AV during update.

 

Figured it out. The DCS installation is on an SSD that holds only video games. When installing DCS on this drive, the Start Menu shortcuts(DCS Update, DCS Repair, etc) did not point to the DCS executables on the SSD. Manually edited the shortcuts, good to go.
