Ah, sweet nirvana of bliss
As in add-on bliss.
WOW! (No pun intended). Things sure have changed in the automatic updater world. I tried a couple of these programs a while back with very little luck. Not the Ace updater, but one or two supposedly generic programs to update anything. Install problems, bugs and errors on running, and difficulty getting them to work was my memory of that endeavor.
This Ace updater is sweet, though. A simple download, unzip and move files and install the program. I’m the impatient sort, so I just fired it up without reading any of the Help documentation. The program came right up, and found not only my installed Ace add-ons, but also found (I’m guessing) my downloads folder as it reported additional add-ons I had that weren’t yet installed. It was a simple matter to tell the program to update everything. Bingo-bango and I’m updated. Really just that simple.
Of course, and all the commenters pointed this out, the utility only updates Ace add-ons. So the more Ace add-ons you have the more this utility will update. This led me in a couple new directions which I’m pretty excited about and I’ll document soon in an upcoming post. Pretty cool stuff, new for me, but I’m just going to leave you with that teaser for now so stay tuned.
For you Mac users, there is a Mac updater also.
Thanks to everyone that commented for opening my eyes to this utility. For all the rest of you that haven’t tried this program yet – it’s well worth your time to install.
