Background downloader
3 months ago

I have background downloader set to automatically download updates.  It's set to check every 2 days.  I've even manually clicked 'check for updates'.


I've seen that 2018 SP 2.0 has been available to download for about a week or so.


Am I missing something, or should it be downloading the update on it's own?


Is there a separation between when the update is available and when it is pushed out to the downloader?

Re: Background downloader

The background downloader will only do small updates, anything that requires a license number has to be manually updated, ridiculous since they already keep all of that information in the downloader....

Would you believe that within an hour of posting this....the background downloader announced that it has finished downloading SOLIDWORKS 2018 SP 2.0?

I'm fairly new to Solidworks, so I wasn't sure what to  expect....but I was surely surprised, especially as it happened so soon after coming here to ask about it.

Sounds like someone flicked the switch
