Bug in Updater found - solution found too!


I intend to run CIS on our company PC and laptops, so want the Intranet Updater configured correctly. c:\windows\temp was filling with Gb’s of tmp files.

Out of the box, Updater is configured to update every 300 seconds and set to “Automatically detect remote folders from client requests” Updater still goes away and trys to download everything including obsolete update. Setting “Remote Folders” to JUST "av/updates50 and inis600 and inis1001 only, prevents unnecessary downloads.

It appears to me that if obsolete software updates are enabled, when updater fails to obtain the updates, it downloads everything, and then leaves masses of data as tmp files.

Keep up the great work!

We would very much appreciate it if you would edit your first post to create an issue report in line with the bug forum guidelines and format here. You can copy and paste the format from this topic.

To understand the reasons why we ask you to follow these guidelines please see below.

Bugs/issues can be impossible or very time consuming to fix if developers don’t have enough information to reproduce them. Since CIS is free, development time is limited. So if you want your issue fixed, please use the format below to describe it.

To avoid clutter, issues not described in the format below your post will not be moved to the ‘moderator verified’ issues topic. This means that the developers may not look at it.

Best wishes and many thanks in anticipation

Unfortunately we do need this issue to be reported in the right format, and with all the information we have asked for, if we are to forward it to verified issues.

For the moment I am going to move it to the Orphaned/Resolved child board. If you do edit your post to create a complete issue report in standard format, and PM an active mod, we will of course consider moving it to verified reports.

The devs only look at the Orphaned/Resolved board if they have time, so please do edit the post and PM an active mod if you want it fixed.

Best wishes
