Update Says It's Available But It's Not

Recommended Posts

Every time I open Chief X7 it says there's an update available. But I have the latest. When I try to run the update it thinks I want to repair something. Is anyone else getting this?

That's kind of odd. I have the exact opposite problem.

I haven't upgraded to X7 yet and was wondering why

I don't get the message saying that there is a newer

version of the software available and would I like to

download it now.

That is probably an option in prefs you have not set.

Scott, Got fish??

No, but what I have is an achy body after 2 days of snow boarding. And I have another day to go. I don't ever remember being this sore after boarding.

And now back to our regularly scheduled program.

Don't know D. Scott. Preferences says that it

should be checking for updates daily.

 

What has been holding me back from updating

is that I am unsure of the procedure if one is

using the hardware lock. I'm using X6 with the

lock. If I upgrade to X7 will my X6 lock still work

or are they going to ding me for another $60 for

a X7 lock? Chief's product page shows different

locks for the last 4 versions (X4-X5-X6-X7).

 

Anybody know the procedure? Or do I need to

get on the horn to Coeur d'Alene?

your X6 lock should work just fine

 

I have used my old locks with new and no issues

 

however, CA could have changed things

 

so if you have issues contact CA's customer service on Monday to discuss

Your X6 lock will continue to work just fine for X6.

X7 will not use your X6 hardware lock - it will run with the software lock unless you buy an X7 hardware lock for it.
