Update R14.041 - Breaks install (Win7) [solved]

Hi Guys,

Just an early warning, I just tried to update to R14.041 and it totally bricked my install, the .exe's throw up a bunch of errors so I can't access C4D at all, so have had to re-install fully. I've tried this twice now, going for a third with some different settings on the installer (turn off backup/auto restart etc).

Wandering if anyone else has had problems before I report it to support?

Win7 x64 Pro

I'll post more specific error messages when I try again, might be some permissions issue with my system, although I have full access and ownership throughout.

cheers
brasc

EDIT: Update! Turning off "Automatically restart the application" worked fine! Bit weird really, maybe the SSDs spooled it back up too quick for permissions to go into effect... Either way seems fixed

i don't see 14.041 on maxon.net?

has it been officially released? or perhaps pulled due to this install error?

thanks

I ran it this morning using the "Check for Updates" menu item from the Help menu and it showed up there.
Not sure if it's available as a manual update via download from the Maxon site...

I ran "check for updates" and go "no updates available"

I guess they pulled it as Dann suggests...
I'm currently 14.034

Just checked it and the 14.041 online update is (still) there. Took a while though till it appeared in the dialog box of the OU - I guess the servers are hit pretty hard.

Best regards,

The online updater displays them before you hit the install button.

Best regards,

ok, I don't know what the hell is going on but the installer was there this morning and I updated half of my render nodes, now it's saying they can't connect to the update server. So half my nodes can't connect to the updated server and I have a deadline. Fabulous.

The notes said faster rendering. Hey, if updating broke anything, I would have taken my lumps and reinstalled the old version. That was my fault. But taking down the updater a little while after announcing, that's different.

They did put it back online and everything is updating and chugging fine.

i just keep checking and would get "no updates" and "can't connect to server" but then after about 10 or so checks it showed up - but only for one of my two machines (still haven't "caught it" for the other)

This might be a hiccup of the update server, many people have update successfully already.

This will be added a bit later.
