My Personal Annoyance
Posted 13 October 2008 - 09:35 PM
What I'd like it to do would be to have three or four tries, flag the failed module and move on. At the end I'd have a list of modules that didn't arrive.
Apart from that, thanks for the good work!

yes, but the already downloaded modules aren't wasted, since if you run apup again, only the missing modules will be downloaded. ok, that could be more stable, but we need an dedicated programmer... until that issue be fixed, please don't remove the already downloaded modules and just run apup again, in the same folder
edit: can you please run apup with /log option? also you are running windows vista, you can just put the file attached into apup folder and run the file that the log will be generated. then, please post the log in here

"Windows6.0-KB955020-x86.msu from download.microsoft.com"
How do I apply that logging switch?

just unzip the file attached into the previous post at the same folder that apup is located and double click the extracted file (apup.cmd)
i've tried the manual download of the file that you pointed. the link is still active, so, probably the issue is at the next file that is set to be downloaded

KB890830 - stuck on 99% installed.
I don't want to be unkind but I am having consistent issues - corrupted modules, incomplete downloads. Thank god I no longer use Site Advisor!
I repeat my request: the downloader widget, as well as the updating program, needs to think intelligently - if something dies, it skips it and continues on, and presents me with a failed task list, rather than just hanging.

Can you please post a log-file, because there is no good reason to hang on KB890830. (See How to make and post an APUP log-file for specific instructions on running APUP if you do this.)

I terminated the process. I will retry and if it hangs again I will post a log.

It seems to have downloaded everything this time and then Autopatcher ran without hanging.

In the meantime, upcoming development of APUP includes better reporting and recovery from failed downloads.
