We have been using the bitrock autoupdater to allow our software to be update when ever there is a new version. While the code work perfectly ok with Windows XP and Windows 7, we are getting the following behavior from Vista users:
Problem: when opening Ubuntu One a small window that says "autoupdate-windows" pops up. Nothing is visible in the window. Upon closing the window (by clicking X in the upper right corner), a message box says a "new update is available," and asks if I want to update.
If I choose "No," the message box appears a second time. Upon closing the second time, nothing occurs.
If I choose "Yes," the message box disappears and the mouse cursor spins for a few seconds then returns to normal. Shortly thereafter the original autoupdate-windows box appears. Clicking X in the upper right corner then closes the box.
This cycle occurs everytime the user wants to update the application.
Is this a known issue of the autoupdater? Is the anything we can do about it or should we write our own code? The original bug reported by our Vista users can be found here.
