Exactly the same problem......
"`Updated' Update Wizard on 9/6 from version 2.4.1702. Subsequent attempts to start the Update Wizard fail. MS error report says:
AppName: update.tmp AppVer: 2.4.1704.0 ModName: update.tmp
ModVer: 2.4.1704.0 Offset: 00062e73"
I have the same problem, if I use the shortcut on the start menu. The update wizard fails immediately. However, it works fine if I spawn it from the Package Manager or if I copy the command and run it from a command prompt window.
On the mailing list, it was said that requiring the shortcut to use Windows 98 compatibility mode also works.
Ah, thanks, setting the compatibility mode does indeed work.
How can I change the compatibility of shortcut?
Right-click shortcut, choose Properties and then Compatibility.
