Hello again Sblaster recommends to check for updates every week. Has there been an update since December 11? That's the date where dear Blaster is stuck, although it goes through its update routine, telling me it has downloaded the latest stuff. I have learned in this forum to check the Options settings for the update to function, so today I updated manually trying it with proxy and then with direct net access, both with the above-mentioned results. So is there no newer update, or am i screwing something up again? Thanks for your help and happy New Year!
