Greetings. As I recall earlier versions of BW, it use to prompt me when updates were available (especially when I first opened the program). That feature seems to be "disabled" somehow. I now need to manually check to see if there are any updates. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

I noticed that too and am updating manually...

In the updater settings have you unchecked the box for "check once every 48 hours"?

Mine doesn't do it automatically either. I've got all the settings where they should be. It hasn't worked from the beginning, but it doesn't bother me really. Just figured I say something since there's a thread about it, and in case it's a bug that needs to be fixed.

The auto-check for updates only checks when you start the program. Do you start the program regularly, or is it always running (e.g. you leave it running around-the-clock)?

Yes, I know that. No, I don't leave it running. :)

I'm not so sure there's a problem. In version 9 there's an option, in addtion to automatically checking for updates, to check every 48 hours. It is checked by default when the program installs. I'm not sure that option was available in version 8 or at the very least not engaged. This gives the perception that the program is not working properly in version 9 or that updates are less frequent. FWIW

As per this thread's suggestion, I unchecked the "Check for updates only once every 48 hours" a few days ago. This morning when I started BW, it did prompt me for the latest update. So I think all is well. Thanks to all for their insights and suggestions. Much appreciated.
