SleepyHead Upgrade
#1
I have been using Sleepyhead for the past month. Very nice program.
However, when I start it up, it says there is an upgrade.
When I click on get upgrade, the progress bar goes green and climbs from 0% to 100%, where it promptly turns red and says Failed.
In the log, there are a couple of fetching and re-directing lines, and then,
Received 1932824 bytes
Extracting SleepyHead.exe
Download Complete

Win 7 (SP1) machine, 2.9 GHz AMD Phenom II quad core processor, 6 GB RAM, plenty of disc space.

I am running BOINC (on 2 cores) and Pegasus Mail in addition to SleepyHead.

Have others had this issue? Any suggestions?

You can set the option for it to stop looking for updates.

Right click the .exe file (not a short cut) and select "run as administrator". Open Sleepyhead and it will successfully install the update. This is the only time you have to do that.

Thank you Paula (and Mark as well for writing the software).
Those instructions worked well!
