    Hi,

    I thought that I knew something about BOClean, but I guess that I have now a question....

    You said that you updated manually.
    Is that still possible with version 4.12 ?

    Look at http://www.nsclean.com/update.html
    When that site is talking about downloading via HTTP, it says:

    Yes it's still possible.Sometimes I do a manual check and happen to download the latest update before the program auto downlads it.

    Hi The Hammer,

    May I ask a question, just to be sure that I understand it right?
    (sorry for asking :oops: )

    There are two things when we are talking about manually updating:

    1.
    You double-left-click your BOClean icon and then you click "Check for update".
    You still go through ftp.
    It is the same as when BOClean updates itself (in case you have set it up in that default way).

    2.
    That old way by using the HTTP-download-way manually when you go to that BOClean site, which I mentioned earlier.


    1. and 2. are two completely different ways !
    1. uses ftp and 2. uses HTTP

    As far as I could see way 2. is only for version 4.11 (according to that site).
    And we all know that version 4.11 is now obsolete.

    So my question:
    Are you sure that you were using way 2. with version 4.12 ?

    Thanks !
    Cheers, Jan.

    FanJ here is the file I used today to manually update:
    http://www.nsclean.com/boc412.xvu

    I figured out the problem! Since earlier I was configuring my router too block certain thing I unchecked the box for "FTP" and thats why BOClean wasnt connecting :oops: ...So now it works ;)

    OK, to add some more and I'm sorry that I didn't think of this earlier :oops:

    There is another way, indeed using HTTP :
    That way is not mentioned at the BOClean site, as far as I could see.
    Those who have subscribed to BOClean update notices by email, know about it.
    And Nancy herself has posted it; example:
    http://www.grc.com/x/news.exe?cmd=article&group=grc.news.latestversions&item=14758&utag=

    So here it goes:
    So yes, indeed, you can also use the HTTP download way with version 4.12 ;)

    Apologies for confusion I might have caused :oops:

    Hi Brandon,

    Our postings crossed.

    Yes you're fully right: you can indeed use that link.

    Once again: apologies to all of you for the confusion I might have caused :oops:
    (I still think that that BOClean site needs to be updated...).

    Cheers, Jan.
