When I go into preferences in C1-6 and check updates, it will show an up such as version 6.3.3 and I'm currently 6.3.2.. The update 6.3.3 shows in blue and I attempt to click on it like a hyper text link and nothing happens. Is this the way I'm supposed to update and something in fouled up in my software?
I believe that behavior is a known bug. Submit a support case to Phase One, and they will help you with it. In any event, you can always download directly from the website.
