Still no VPS notification nor sound
« on: October 17, 2013, 05:58:28 PM »
Ever since RC1, I've never had sounds or notifications for VPS updated. (streaming updates are fine). I was expecting this to be fixed by the final version. Has anyone else had VPS update with sound and notification.

In other words I get the VPS update somehow but don't get the sound nor notification.

This a clean install.

Any solutions?

At the moment there seems a larger issue no VPS Updates yet today, so the sound isn't going to be

The streaming updates are working away, but still waiting for VPS. Whilst typing this up I got a pop-up that promoting the avast! Mobile Security informative pop-up. No avast voiceover.

These informative/promotional toaster pop-ups appear to be piggybacked to the VPS Update Notification, so you don't see the VPS update notification, I suspect it is this that is screwing up the avast sounds on update notifications.

Did you also have this problem in the BETA?

Yes in RC3 (didn't start in the earlier beta trials), but that was only on this XP Pro system, I don't use my netbook in the beta trials.

VPS updates and pop-up working normally for me,  no sound but that is a minor problem.

Well 131017-1 arrived this morning unannounced on my win7 netbook, no popup or sound. Checking the 'Show last popup message' still shows the FB Privacy information popup as in my Reply #3. This system hasn't been rebooted so it could well be recalling the same popup as before.

The same 131017-1 (image1) arrived this morning unannounced on my winXP Pro, no popup or sound. Checking the 'Show last popup message' (image2) it is greyed out. This system was shutdown last night, so confirmation no popup relating to this update.

See if it works when you change from English to Pirate talk.

Why would I want to do that, if I want it to work with English, unless you are saying that it would jog other languages to life (which I rather doubt).

Well, it would be just a test. ;)

So it seems some people have the problem and some others don't...

Could it be an OS or back end (server end issue)?
