How to force auto updater to start...


Recommended Posts

Just a FYI...

 

I was on version 1.2.6.18651. and when I would start the game, it would not run the autoupdater.

I somehow deleted my link to updater in my start menu. But I was able to find the updater in the ...DCS/DCS World/BIN file, but that wouldn't work either. It would just start up the game without checking for an update

 

I found out how to force start the updater.

 

go to .... saved games/DCS/Config

 

find the file : autoupdate.settings

 

I changed it to : autoupdate.settings.bak

 

I ran the game and now the updater checked and found the latest patch and installed version 1.2.6.18933 !

 

hope this helps anyone else....

You can just recreate the shortcut on the desktop from the updater, right-click it to edit it and add "update" to the Target line so it looks like so:

 

"C:\Program Files\Eagle Dynamics\DCS World\bin\DCS_updater.exe" update

 

and it will force an update check cycle when you run it.
