I hope someone can help me with what has become a very frustrating experience. I am running VSE 8.5.0i on a Win2k SP2 box (hence not using VSE 8.7.0i), and all has been going smoothly until a couple of weeks ago, when my AutoUpdate logs started showing Update failures due to a corrupt gdeltaavv.ini file.At this point not even _manual_ updates from the console could get past the problem. I then searched these forums, where I found suggestions to
(a) find and update some files called "frameworkservice.exe" and "updateui.exe" (??) but I was unable to locate these - where can they be found? ...
(b) download and install the latest SuperDAT (5975 at the time).
Option (b) seemed to do the trick, and I was again able to update both manually and automatically... for a few days. Now, I am only able to update manually again, with the same sort of gdeltaavv.ini errors as before. Very frustrating! To give you a taste, here is the relevant snippet from the Automatic (failing) and Manual (successful) AutoUpdate Log files:

5/11/2010 8:55:39 AM DGVIMS-TOPLICA\Administrator Update succeeded to version 5978.0000.
At first, I suspected that it was because the automatic updates were executing under "NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM" while the manual ones under "DGVIMS-TOPLICA\Administrator", but I don't think this is the problem because what I've described above is _not_ a deterministic process.On some automatic updates the problem _may_ happen, but on others it won't. Weird.. Please help!
