Hi Jorge,

Winstep Nexus just updated itself but I cannot find the installer. As I always keep a backup of my install files can you please let us know in which directory it gets downloaded to please?

Thanks for that. However, I'm left in a quandary because I read the ReadMe which states it is merely an upgrade file to an existing installation and cannot be used as an original installer.

I don't know how this happened but I have 2 original installers named UltimateSetup.exe, both downloaded on Jan 27, 2017 which I am unable to identify because in the details tab of the file properties their version number is 0.0.0.0. The first was downloaded at 11:23:42 and is 50,265,598 bytes while the second came down at 11:24:26 and is 45,680,090 bytes. Which of those would be the original installer and what version was it please?

I have no idea how I came to download it twice in the space of a minute. Just as perplexing, both folders contain a PDF copy of Invoice 42029210 and my wsxkey. That said, the folder with the larger of the 2 installers also contains the tile pack.

Are you sure both say UltimateSetup.exe ? I'm asking this because the Nexus Ultimate setup file is still under 50 MB in size, and only Xtreme is over 50 MB.

As for the '0.0.0' version numbers, from v17.12 onward the installers already list the version numbers they relate to.

This said, since your license key is good for it, why don't you at this point just 'start over' and download the full v18.1 setup file of Nexus Ultimate from the Winstep web site? No need to run it, just for archiving purposes. Then you could delete the other zip files from the Versions folder to avoid confusing yourself in the future and you only keep the full v18.1 setup file.

Next update you already know where the incremental setup versions are stored and you just add them to the folder where your full install is.

Somehow I got it into my head that the standard installer was not the full version and that you were only provided a link to down the latter once you have paid. Your solution is indeed much simpler and your customer service is the fastest on the planet. In fact, the only way anyone could have provided quicker service would have been to answer the question before I had even thought of it! :mrgreen:

Now I have downloaded the latest version as per your suggestion, I have discovered why I thought you only get the full version after payment.

Indeed, the public download is NexusSetup.exe and the paid version is UltimateSetup.exe. This also explains why I had both downloaded within a minute of each other and it explains the difference in file size. Which of course leads me to the question, are you sure the public download of v18 is the full version?

If you mean Ultimate.zip, yes. The file size of Ultimate.zip v18.1 is 49,456 KB (48.2 MB).

But it is not Ultimate.zip that one downloads from your site. It is nexus.zip and its file size is 46,179,026 bytes.

Any chance you could mail me a link to download the current version of UltimateSetup.exe? Alternatively, PM me the link.

PM sent. :)

For future reference, the link is also on the email with your license key.

Whoops! I didn't keep a copy of that mail, only the BC Micro invoice.

Thanks anyway. :)
