Fix for Metabrowser Closing Issue
Non-static static IP Address FTW!
First, sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.
Now, to give an explanation of what exactly is happening.
My host recently (yesterday) migrated my account/data to new hardware and caused my "static" IP Address to change. This, in turn, caused a failure in the check for updates to my server and crashes metabrowser after launching because it cannot find the update server.
I have updated the install files to reflect the change in IP Address and have also fixed the crashing issue if the update server is not found. You will have to manually update your installation by downloading one of the files below, based on your current running version of metabrowser.
If, while installing, you run into an issue where it says "Installation directory must be on a local hard drive", this means that you must run the installation as administrator.To run the installer as administrator just open an elevated command prompt, navigate to the location where the installer is and then run the installer, for example:
- Download to C:\Temp\metabrowser.msi
- Open elevated command prompt
- Press Windows Button on your keyboard
- Type cmd
- Press and hold CTRL+SHIFT and then press ENTER
- Navigate to C:\Temp\
- Type the name of the installer (ie metabrowser.msi) and press ENTER
If you have any issues or questions, please feel free to send me an email
Again, sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.
