Story Topic:


I've tried several times to update this through the built-in updater; each time, it says the downloaded copy is not valid. I've tried it on two computers (both running Windows 7), but the same flash drive (Sandisk cruzer micro 4gb). Not sure if this is an isolated problem (never had issues with this drive or installation before) or not, so figured I should mention it.

Sorry about that, the md5 hash wasn't updated in the updater database to this new version, so the updater always thought the file didn't download correctly. It should be working fine now.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
