Connection Timed Out Error

Post by Costa » Sat Aug 18, 2018 4:08 am

Hi Catraxx People

Was wondering if anyone can advise me as to what is going on?
1. I open catraxx
2. Check for Update manually in the Tools Tab.
3. Connection timed out?
Its like something is blocking the connection to search for updated Internet.dll

Thanks if anyone knows
Costa

Me too ( in France ) since one month, or perhaps a little more.
Same with Bookcat and Catraxx.

So if its happenig in France, Germany and Me (Australia) then it is a software issue.
Unfortunately, I think Fredrik has retired and this why we use
Fans Of FNPrg.

I like Catraxx as I have been using it for 14 years.
I also like to keep my software up to date.

Hello,
I've just tried the manual update as descibed. No problem - already up-to-date.
Some ideas from my side.

When you open Tools / Open Data Folder --
Is your CATraxx_Internet.dll located there?
Do you have access to that file? Read Write Execute
Did you try updating as admin?

Is there a firewall blocking external access?

Good luck and stay healthy.
Cheers,

Günter

Ok. Last option from my side.
Manually download with your browser and store the dll to the CATraxx DataFolder.For safety rename your old dll before replacing.
