    Just love this latest idea about the automatic update
    Now this would be just great in Riderunner program itself, so how about that mitch, will we see this in the future in RR?

    John, simply brilliant!

    Roadwarrior, that does sound like a good idea for updating RR in the same manner...........maybe not, who knows.

    ArRRGGGHHH!!!!! Why isn't this easier! I must have lost half of my brain somewhere cause I cannot get RRVoice and RREarth to work! I sure wish there were step by step instructions that could be found somewhere!

    Well, the updater is coming along nicely! I successfully have it getting the files from the server, and storing them in a temporary directory now. That is based on what the date of the last update was. Just some polishing up, and it should be ready.

    On a side note...... I am still bummed out that Beverly McClellan didn't win on The Voice yesterday She was a good friend of mine in High School. Oh well, I am sure her career is on it's way now!

    Unable to install due to menu.skin error

    Ok, this is a new one on me: I'm trying to do a new install on a new Win7 Home Premium carPC and keep getting the error: Error Loading Menu.skin:5, invalid procedure call or argument. I've installed numerous times on XP and never encountered this error. I even reloaded the same setup file on my desk computer (XP) and it loaded DFX5.1 flawlessly. When I try this file on the Win 7 computer, and exit the error screen, the program loads the initial menu screen and then exits all the way out.

    Any ideas out there ?

    Turn on debug and look at the last few lines, it might tell you a bit more details, otherwise attach it here and we can maybe help.

    Thanks Blue. I had already done that, it allowed me to at least start the program, and get to the next barrier: each of the few menu items I tapped caused the program to be unresponsive and had to be closed down. I plan on working on a solution for a while longer before I throw up the white flag. Nothing like a good mystery to keep the brain sharp (or in my case, less dull).

    Ok, the Auto Update thing is coming along pretty good. Still a few more labels and such to add, update correctly and such. In the video, it shows 5 files to update, and lists only 4 when it downloads. The 5th is the DFX.dll that is handled separately. It will not show in the list, but instead you will get a pop-up saying that the dll can not be installed while RR is running. Click OK to restart RR and install this file. When you click OK, RR will shutdown, the dll will be copied and registered, and RR will automatically be re-launched. All of this will be done without ever seeing the desktop during the shutdown and restart process You will get a confirmation screen that the dll was successfully installed after RR and the skin reloads.

    Here is a early preview of it in action:

    Oh, did I mention, that if you lose Internet connection and the download fails, as a lot of people will be using 3/4G, it will just resume where it left off the next time
