Thank you for sharing your time. I assume that since you are a "MVP" you may
have better information on this than I have found so far.
The specifics you requested are these:
Automatic updates should be that - automatic. They are not. There doesn't
appear to be a manual overide that I have been able to find.
When they don't update it posts an error code "8000FFFF" sometime, other
times its something else "8024...". When you search for these error codes,
you get a response with about 10 other error codes, none of which are the
ones that you searched for. Just a tad bit frustrating.
So I read this forum to see if anyone else is having the same problem, and
oh My! yes they are. They get great help, like "reboot" which I have done for
weeks with out any improvement. I erased some file that I shouldn't even have
to know about and reboot. No change. Two other similar wild goose chases and
I am right back where I started from.
If this software was a toy or an appliance, I'd take it back for a refund
because its broken and came out of the box that way. If you have a magic
answer, I would appreciate hearing about it.
