In response to a ZA message, I just updated to the 2012 version.
see the new version info below.
My reason for his thread is that the update was VERY different than my past experiences.
More feedback than issues here. but ....
1. when asked to run or download, I (am sure) that I chose download. It went straight into an installation. (it appeared to have downloaded a download manager?)
2. the displayed numbers for time and volume and speed during the download were totally bogus. While I'm not really concerned, displaying could raise questions in my mind about the programming - better not to display numbers, perhaps just the typical progress bar?
3. In all previous updates, I was ASKED FOR MY PASSWORD. this time I was NOT. The old version was just uninstalled. This is, IMHO, a SERIOUS SECURITY VIOLATION.
I looked for a place to provide ZA feedback directly, but did not find one.
Anyone here have an email address for feedback?
