Don't want to see the 'update' window when there's no update(!)

  • Hello,

    Firstly, I’d like to congratulate you on a great product. It knocks the spots of any other archive app I’ve used.

    Anyway, my ‘wish’ is this: when I run PA, it sometimes checks for an update. However, when there is no update available, the window still pops up and tells me ‘there’s no update available’. OK, so if there’s no update - why do I need to know? I don’t care if there’s no update available, only if there is an update.

    I’d like it if the ‘update’ window was only shown if there was an update available.

    So it’s a minor request, but it bugs me.

    Many thanks, and keep up the good work.

    This is done to show what is PowerArchiver accessing internet for. When we first started this feature, we didnt show the screen unless it had an update - we just showed it in status bar.

    After getting tens of emails accusing us of spyware, we decided to show screen at all times :).

  • Hello spwolf,

    Yes, that’s a fair point. How about showing the screen to say it’s checking for an update, then closing it automatically if there’s none available?

    Thanks for the reply, anyway.

    Bam! Wish granted. Please look at PA 2009 Beta 1.
