Windows 8.1 Pro, 64-bit
Intel Core i7-2630QM @ 2.00GHz
8GB RAM
TXS Version: TeXstudio 2.6.6 (hg 4105+:b24377c712d7+)

To reproduce:

  1. Menu - Options -> Configure TexStudio
  2. Click the "Check Now" button under Update.
  3. Error message: "Update check failed with error: Connection closed".

Notes:
1. My internet connection is working fine.
2. I also encountered this in 2.6.4 before re-installing windows.
3. Last check time stamp next to "Check Now" button says "6.11.2013 18:56", even though I installed TXS yesterday, after having re-installed windows yesterday as well.
4. I have been trying unsuccessfully to build from the repository to fix the annoying home/end bug issue, and the update button should have told me that 2.6.6 was out to save me the trouble, but since it didn't work I didn't know. I only found out after going back to the site to re-install after having re-installed my OS. i.e. this should be fixed with priority since there's no point doing updates if people don't know it's there.

Thanks!

    This is caused by file access problems on sourceforge.net. Issue is reported to sf.

    Ah I see, thanks for following up on that.

    This is fixed for TXS >= 2.7.0. However, older versions still won't get the update notification because we had to change the update request.
