OK Its a great pity that one cannot simply cut and paste from the readable window here. Seems a bit convoluted compared with other text windows.

After you run the command, press F6 to reach a read-only window of your results, then select and copy as normal.

Actually, after writing that last message, I launched my alpha portable, and immediately got an update request.
So I retract my former message.

That said, responding to your below, did you see Leonard's message on August 29th, replying to thread "does alpha snap auto update on windows 7?"?:

Could you guys please provide the output of the following in a python console?

import updateCheck; print(updateCheck.state)


My output is as follows:

{'pendingUpdateAPIVersion': (0, 0, 0), 'pendingUpdateBackCompatToAPIVersion': (0, 0, 0), 'dontRemindVersion': '2019.2', 'lastCheck': 1567002250.28,
'pendingUpdateFile': None, 'pendingUpdateVersion': None}

Regards,

Leonard

Yes when I last asked about he update automation, somebody said they would look into it, but I never heard any more

I guess one could raise a ticket for it. However the log definitely says checking for updates as it boots in, so without a smoking gun, so to speak, I don't know where else to go with it.
Anyone out there actually get alpha snaps to automatically inform of updates?

Don't know, but mine never do either, or at least never seem to prompt for updates, and I'm on Win 10 1903.

It seems to be fixed as we have been running the try build for some weeks now.
I saw an update to put this into the main build the other day, is this now in the normal Alpha build.
Incidentally, has anyone any idea why my portable versions of Alpha snaps never ever seem to check for updates even though its on but it works if I do it manually? This is on windows 7.
I can see no obvious reason.
