Condor Updater not working?

Post by JBlyth » Mon Apr 12, 2021 2:33 am

I tried to use Condor Updater yesterday and today, but it seems to go into an endless loop "Looking for updates" and eventually I get numerous dialogue boxes saying "Incomplete Data from Server".

I have tried reinstalling, but get the same error.

Any suggestions?

Cheers

Could be from a numerous of possibilities...
What's your IP? https://whatsmyip.com
Did you try to restart your box?
Latest CU version is 2.0.7771, is it the same on your PC?

Did you try reinstalling with an executable file that was already on your PC or did you download a new CondorUpdater executable?

If you haven't please download the latest CondorUpdater executable as there was a big update recently to incorporate Goodies into CondorUpdater.

I think I saw the same error you are when my old version asked me to update however I said 'not now'. After that it became stuck in the loop. Just go to CC site and download the latest CondorUpdater to install. Maybe try uninstalling the old version before installing the new version too.

Thanks Paul,

Yep - I uninstalled and did a brand new install from a new downloaded executable. It did pick up the old settings. Perhaps my next step will be to uninstall again, find the settings file, delete that and try another new install.

It's still happening, and this is what I am seeing before it goes nuts...

Obviously the wrong version is installed, or you installed the new one elsewhere and still run the old version.
Try uninstall Condor Updater and look if this old version is still somewhere. Maybe antiramsonware is preventing installation of the new version?
Ensure the Installer you run is really the one you just downloaded.
And normally, CU is updated automatically so you should always have the latest version. So something is interferring.

At the top of the above page is the link to download the latest Condor Updaterinstaller. As BOD says it sounds like you're reinstalling an old version or still running an old version.

Thanks for the replies.

I have done the following:-
  • Removed the Condor Updater program
  • Deleted the \AppData\Roaming\Condor Updater folder
  • Rebooted
  • Checked the registry for entries not removed after the uninstall
  • Run the fresh install from the installer program
  • I still get the same error messages and continual looping
  • I have attached the error log below.
  • It is interesting that the defaults I had previously set have been reinstated. Where on earth is the software picking that up from?
Many thanks

That's very weird, it looks like a ghost is clicking on Refresh button every second or so...
I've released a new version (2.0.7776) with more logs to trace who is calling the "Click check for updates" function.
Could you please install it and post the logs here? No need to uninstall everything. Please post also content of CondorUpdater.log.1, it contains logs from previous run and could show if several instances are running at the same time.

About 30 minutes ago I did also delete the registry key CondorUpdater which had not be removed by removing the program previously. That was where it was picking up the old settings from.

Now I get this message box after an earlier one about not having a key....
Updater1.png
And then it - suddenly starting working properly and I was able to download a new key. Perhaps on the second running of the program.

Very strange.

Here is the log file - sorry, it seems that only images are accepted as attachements.

Something is launching CondorUpdater repeatedly. I can't figure out what... New version again (build 2207) online, please try it! And don't delete registry or other, that could rise other problems I'm not tracking here.
After installation and before run Condor Updater, please delete logs file then run CU once, wait ~10 seconds then close it.
How many log files do you have? could you post them here? Thank you, we'll catch this damn bug!

Here you go, BOD1,

Sorry it took a while to do. I got up at 4am and decided to go back to bed at 6am for more beauty sleep ;-)....

I did as you requested and ran the app for about 10 seconds and generated this log. I then ran it again for much longer and didn't have any issues.

Well done with such a speedy fix!

Cheers
