FileHippo.com update checker
« on: June 28, 2008, 12:13:30 PM »
Hi all

I have been using FileHippo.com update checker for quite a while, with no problems until today.
I get a error when i click to check for an update.
I am using the "standalone version" (NOT the installed version)

If anybody else having any problems.

Using Win XP SP3 all updates

Cheers Pete

Same problem here with 1.022 Beta version.
The same message came in Portuguese (Brazilian).

Anyone having problems with FileHippo.com update checker and VLC media player? I downloaded and installed VLC media player 0.8.6i but FileHippo still says that I need to update it. ( and shows the same version I have installed)

I am not registered at that forum yet so my link is bad but that is the post I was refering to.

I see that you now have more than 20 posts which will permit you to update your profile to include signature information.

Go to PROFILE then Modify Profile then Forum Profile Information then Signature: and put information about your system just like my signature about your system just like my signature so that the helpers can offer pertinent advice.
