SVO can't update itself?

Hey! So for a long time, this has not been working for me. I think it would be AWESOME if it did, so I wanted to know if there was a fix for this. I would love to be able to update my system without all the hassle! Also, just to be clear since I didn't mention it already, I am referring to the VUPDATE function, or the little links you can click to have svo update itself! Here is what happens for me:

    I get that pretty much every time I update to a new version, but if I open up the Package Manager it -is- installed properly, so I just restart the client and it's fine. May be worth checking that next time and seeing if the same is the case for you.

    Same here, I've never had a mudlet update actually work without having to do it manually.

    Mine actually gives that error every time despite installing successfully.

    Out of my 7 or so alts, SVO updates itself just fine for 5/7 updates.

    Takes about thirty seconds for the manual install if it does fail so it's never a huge deal for me.

    When I get that. I just reinstall SVO again if it's been deleted and then try to update to the new version. Usually updates fine during the second or third time.

    Manual installing isn't a problem, takes just a couple of seconds, was just interesting to see that I'm not the only one who hasn't ever had an automatic update go through.

    It seems to be very random in when it doesn't work (it can even do that on a single computer, apparently). For the technical reason, what happens is that the script execution just... stops at some point and doesn't continue. No errors are raised either. There's some theories into this, but I haven't been able to make this happen in my windows vm, which makes it more difficult to work out.

    No problem! It will be interesting to see if it works when I get a Macbook Pro in the near future

    Has anyone on Mac / a Linux OS had troubles updating like this?

    @Shibumi updates just fine, we are referring to the auto-update system in place?

    A lot of the times on Windows 7, for me at least, it was my GPO that was stopping the updating. I basically just disabled a ton of stuff and it worked fine.

    I've never had a problem on Windows 8 or Windows Vista

    Yes! The Group Policy O....stands for something. Object? I can't be the only person that uses their work machine to play.  >:)

    Haha! Gladly!

    You may get in trouble for this!

    • To open Local Security Policy, click Start, point to Settings, click Control Panel, double-click Administrative Tools, and then double-click Local Security Policy.
    • In the console tree, click User Rights Assignment.
    • In the details pane, double-click the user right you want to change.
    • In UserRight Properties, click Add User or Group.
    • This varies: for me I added my AZCORP and LDAP ID with admin rights.

    C/P'd some of the instructions from Technet
