I get a WIndows installer error when trying to update to the latest release of FMP released today (2/6/18).
Anyone have any idea how to handle this?
Instead of the manual download let FMP16 download and install. Start FMP16 and it should automatically detect new update, if it does not then click "help" then click check for "update". Once detected click download then click install
worked for me on my w10 laptop without issue.
it looks like the message displayed when calling the msi installer without providing any argument. How did you start the update ?
I downloaded the update and saved it in the same folder as all the previous updates I have and then double clicked it to start the .exe file.
I updated my Windows 10 VM today by doing the Help Menu -> Check for Updates and it worked fine.
Seems an easier method
I had this same issue and posted earlier today.
Sorry but suggestions to "Check for Updates" = "holding it wrong". The stand-alone updater should work.
My sympathies to the person that shipped it without (enough) testing.
You're right. It definitely should work.
I was just suggesting an easier way to do it that seems to work as advertised is all.
Take your files backup!
Completely Uninstall your existing FM version!
Install your licensed latest FM version!
Try updater & Check!
No one stated you were doing anything wrong. I as well as others were just stating how to get the update install.
I would suggest using Report a Product Issue to make sure Tech Support knows about the issue.
I agree the manual download should work.
