Magic Album - Program Bugs

Updater not working, deletes itself. (not a bug)


I am running version on Win7 HP 64-bit with MA installed on my C: drive, not in Program Files.
When I tried to update most recently, I received a "can't update" message.
Turns out, the updater.exe file is gone from the directory.
So, I downloaded a fresh copy, put it in my MA folder, and ran it.
Nothing happened and Updater.exe was deleted from the MA folder.

EDIT: Norton 360 Multi-device's Norton File Insight was flagging updater.exe as unreliable and nuking it. I had to manually trust the file before it would run.

Does it works normally after you trust the file?

yes, all worked fine, but I had to copy the exe into the MA folder, run Insight, and trust the file there; trusting the file while still in Downloads folder and then copying or moving to the MA folder didn't work

I can't help it. Send the file to the Norton if it is possible.

I will. You can close the ticket. Norton isn't saying there is anything actually wrong with the file, just that the "community" hasn't rated it trusted enough yet.
