Hello Jeff,

I checked for updates, today, and BD initiated the action to install but an error message popped up indicating the EXE could not be opened and nothing would load. I clicked on OK and the screen closes. See attached screenshot.

Regards, Al

Hi Al,

This seems to be a problem with the move to the new host provider. 

Please upgrade in this instance by going to the Downloads >> 
Birder's Diary Program page on this site and clicking on the download button.

After that, the Check For Program Update feature in BD should work again.

That should fix it.

Jeff

Jeff,

I downloaded the update and used the "run" option. It opened and installed to BD. I now have BD 5.1 v102. I didn't use the "check for updates" feature so don't know if it works.

Thanks for the update Al.

Go ahead and check the Help >> Internet: Check for a program update feature to ensure it is now working. You should get the message that you are up to date
