      Hit Enter too early. Should have read:

      Will not run

      Very interesting software but can't get 1.0 on Windows to run.

      UI version dies silently; command line reports error as above.

      Wasn't sure if qualified to submit a bug (given I can't use a keyboard), so thought would post here first.

      Cheers -- Elliot

        Looks like an oddity with your system variables.  Can you type the following in a command prompt and tell me what you get?

        echo %APPDATA%
        echo %USERNAME%

      I have similar CLI probs:

      C:\Program Files\Appupdater>appupdater.exe --upgrade
      Using config at C:\ProgramData\Appupdater\appupdater.ini.
      The following packages will be upgraded (* = security update):
              Pidgin  2.4.0 => 2.4.2  12.0 MB
              Powerpoint Viewer       11.0.5703 => 12.0.4518.1014
      Traceback (most recent call last):
        File "appupdater.py", line 40, in <module>
        File "libappupdater\console.pyc", line 161, in run
      TypeError: not all arguments converted during string formatting

      Application Data

        Yeah thats not right.  For APPDATA you should have something of the form:

        C:\Documents and Settings\Elliot\Application Data

        I'd suspect you will have serious problems with your system if this isn't right.  What does this show?

        echo %USERPROFILE%

          Sorry - I'm making a meal out of this...


          C:\Documents and Settings\Elliot.TROUBLE\Application Data


          C:\Documents and Settings\Elliot.TROUBLE

      Ah, yeah, that will do it.  The problem is that Elliot.TROUBLE doesn't match Elliot.  I should change the code to handle these cases, you can file a bug if you want to make sure it gets in there.  A workaround would be to set the following:

      PROGRAMDATA=c:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data

        Yes, that resolved it - cheers. I will look into filing a bug.

      Fixed this in r539.  You will see it in the next release.
