Mouser,

DCU is a great concept, and already seems very handy. But...

I just ran DCU, and (perhaps for the first time) it told me that itself and FARR needed updating. I clicked "DL & install all updates". Pretty soon a Firefox (2.0.0.4) download dialog appeared, but I had to wait about a minute before FF responded to my click on the dialog's "Save" button. This happened for both the DCU and the FARR downloads. Don't know if this is a DC or a FF issue, but it has not happened before with FF dl's.

I eventually ended up with two copies of the DCU download, and one copy of the FARR download, in my DL directory. Even if I clicked the Save button again while waiting, WTF?

Also, what is the point of calling the button "DL & install all updates" if it does not automatically go into the installation step? Seems like I had to manually run the two downloaded update files. Or am I missing something.

Win2K SP4.

The updater is supposed (and does, on my computer) to download the updates and then run the updaters, you still have to press the "next" buttons on the installers, though. Not sure if that's what you're referring to.

jdmarch,

there is an option on how you want it to install things...
if you set it to run the installers, you shouldn't get that behavior.
it sounds like its set on "open browser to download"

Thanks, mouser. That's it, of course. Perhaps the text on the "DL & install" button should reflect the actual operation to be performed.
