Retry on checksum errors
Posted 18 July 2008 - 07:06 PM
One very irritating issue (at least for me) is that, periodically, a message will appear that "one or more files have checksum errors". These errors seem to disappear if I try again with a restored AutoPatcher folder.
I am wondering how difficult it would be to check files immediately on download and retry at least once if a checksum error is found.

pal, periodically, ms replace their updates with files that have the exact same name. given so, apup will download the file anyway, but will point that isn't downloading the same file. due that message, we always investigate the reason for that and, if required, the script is updated to match with the new file. you may also notice that when this happen, the detection for the installed module will not work for the new one.

of course. because apup will look if you have the version that was expected to, doesn't matter if there's an new version for the file or not. due that, you only will download the new version when we realize that there's an new update and fix the script. you may also notice that this issue happens more often each 2nd Tuesday of each month, that is know also Patch Tuesday (today, to be exact)

The upside, despite a few small aggravations, when all is said and done the release is available to use on another computer or use again without having to redownload, versus the options available when using MU/WU.
