Check for update is a bit slow in the update


#1

Just so you know, this has happened many times:

I open the WIP and goes straight to the check for update to get the latest build. And as you can see, it states that there are no new updates and that it HAS checked, but the link show that there is a new one:

And when I close it and open the check for update agan then it shows that it is downloading.

@brian can you help here?

Hi Jorgen,

I understand how this is confusing. And I also understand why it works this
way…

First, the update service only checks for updates when Rhino is started. We
figured there wasn’t any sense checking for and downloading updates on a
machine where Rhino is never run.

So, when you start Rhino, it asks the service “hey, you got an update?”.

If this is the first launch since the update was available, the service
says “Nope” and then starts a background process to check.

A minute or two later, the update service has figured out there is a new
build available and starts downloading it.

The delay you see in the update dialog box is because of the delay in the
update service. I’ll see if I can figure out a way to make it faster.

Or maybe it doesn’t necessarily need to work this way? Perhaps Rhino could could simply say “Checking for update - please wait” as the first response under the circumstances you described.

Hi Brian,
This still happens. I think it would help if it didn’t claim that it was up to date until it was sure:)


As you can see it even thinks it has done a propper check as it states that last check was a minute ago.

When I wait two minutes and check again the download has started.
