Auto Updating

Hi,

I started using TB portable today - works great!

It popped a screen telling me a newer version of TB was available.

As it was not the latest PortableAp I did not do the upgrade.

What would have happened if I did the auto upgrade?

I guess this is a kind of bug - AutoUgrading should refer to the latest Portable Ap available and not the latest TB available.

Thanks

Dont worry

You can do the in-place (auto) upgrades without any problems. John has said before that most (if not all) of the programs he puts out supports this. Also, next time, or just in case you dont belive me, use the search feature located on top. Here's the results of a quick search for in-place upgrades: https://portableapps.com/search/node/in-place+upgrades+thunderbird

Seconded

Both Thunderbird and Firefox update fine. Both in terms of the main programs and themes and extensions.

Problems with auto update

Hi,
I have problems auto-updating thunderbird portable.
I am using version 1.5.0.8 with gpg and enigmail. I added lightning and german language extensions. The updater downloads the thunderbird-update but after restarting thunderbird portable it shows an error that it could not install the update and then it tries to download the whole thunderbird-package but after restarting it fails, too. Can anyone tell me how to fix that or how to update thunderbird portable manually?

Thank you!

Hmmm

Did you UPX the files to save space? This happened to me when I did this. Just let it do a complete update, it never hurt me when I did it.

Whats UPX?
No the complete update didn't work either. I am using Windows Vista Business...
Works great except the update. But didn't think that is the update, but a misconfiguration.

Do you have a Zip-File or a new portable exe so that I can upgrade manually? On this site I found only 1.5.0.8

Firefox 2.0 upgrade does

Firefox 2.0 upgrade does work, but the updater requests administrator rights. Thunderbird update does still noch work, so a manual zipfile-archiv would be helpful.

Make sure you have plenty of free space (40+ MB is good). That's the most common reason updates fail.
