The attached is a small utility that can be used to get the current ADE version. This may be useful for users with versions prior to the current production version (1.75) since the on-line update check will report they are up to date when they are not. It is trivially easy to use. Just run it and click Check, and after a second or two you should get the current version. If the check fails then you should get an error message.

latest version - does not look at your local copy at all - gets the data from a file I upload. I struggled to work out what to call it - current latest version? If anyone can come up with a better description then please say so :)

Where can I get the manual update?
EDIT: I found it!
Can I nevertheless wate for the next automatic update because I have no problems with the version 6704 ?

Maybe "most recent build."

You can wait on the next automatic update if you have no issues with the current one. Thanks for the suggestions Rick and Doug - I think that sounds better and more descriptive

Loaded and ran this and get result "Most recent version is 1.76.6708 etc".

My ADE reports that it is 1.76.6709. Am I ahead of myself?

No you aren't ahead - you are using the updated executable to fix the display problem. Also this is under test so the result being delivered may not be right for some people. I will update it when I release the next 'official update'
