Re: Olympus Master 2.11 update

There must be far too many people updating as I have attempted four times to download and have not been successful.

Re: Olympus Master 2.11 update

Worked for me first time. I booted Master 2.05, it automatically told me there was an update available, I followed the instructions, it took 3-4 minutes to download and then the software restarted and, voila...

Re: Olympus Master 2.11 update

Surprisingly it worked for me - though I would recommend a mug of coffee and a good book as necessary accessories to the activity.

Mind you it might make a good opportunity to browse the gallery.

(looking at the firewall logs I would suggest just on 10 minutes)

Re: Olympus Master 2.11 update

Just tried to install the update. Program now won't run, won't re-install, un-installing with Add or Remove fails, update in Add or Remove fails. Maybe a System Restore will work

Ho, hum............

Oh - dear, what OS are you running - I had no problem with XP, haven't yet done the Vista box.

XP Pro (SP3). The System Restore worked but am wary of trying again.

Re: Olympus Master 2.11 update

After several attempts I finally updated the program.

Anne is still struggling. Both running Vista.

Well it's not SP3 (necessarily) as I'm running that, might be worth going to the uk olympus shop (in a few days) and doing a fresh install.

Well, I have now successfully updated at last - somewhat disappointed as I had my mug of coffee in hand, a good book at the ready and what happened - the download was completed before I could take my first gulp!

Regards, Anne

Re: Olympus Master 2.11 update

All OK now and running 2.11. I have so many programs installed on my machine that I suppose the more I put on the more likely that something will conflict.

The funny thing was that after the restore I was back running 2.06, I rebooted the machine and tried to upgrade. I was told I was running the latest version and when I checked it was 2.11

Anyway, all is well

Steve
