I thought you still had a copy of W-7 on one of your computers and was referring to the Tuesday Patch update, the Java update, and the Adobe XI update. That is what Gwalk900 and I were discussing yesterday and what most of the Hughes.net customers are confronted with this week. I was not referring to the W-10 beta new release.
In regards to my question, I thought it was not possible to set up Windows 7 updates in the Hughes.net Download scheduler? I also thought that if a W-7 update got cut off that what had been downloaded to that point was retained in temporary memory and when the connection resumed the download continued from that point without starting over again?
I'm glad you were able to complete the W-10 within the free period. Do you check your download speed prior to the update? If so, what was it? I recall you mentioned that they had fixed your slow speed problem of recent times by agreeing to upgrade your plan to one that is not normally available anymore.
I guess I'm a bit, or a lot confused....
Thanks for the clarification. I have 2 W-7 and 1 W-8,1 in service and totally understand the download start time problem regardless of the settings. That's why I took them out of check for updates at 3 A.M. for patch Tuesday. I still haven't actually downloaded any of them yet, but have received notification in the taskbars that they are ready. Usually the 8,1 pc does do the downloads during the night but once in a while when a reboot is required for it to continue to the next update we will see a message of restart necessary or W-8 will do it in so many minutes.
I hope that a lot of folks who believe that their updates are being done during the night and have stated so as not being a cause of lost allotment during the day will check into it themselves to see what is really going on.
