Will that GetPing() bug fix cover the issue we were talking about yesterday?



I was wondering the same thing but some reason it wont install. Its saying that I have a newer version already.

Not really a big deal for now since I am now using a variable. I'll wait for the next update and install it and then try it again.


If you uninstall the old version or just delete your current ARC.exe file and you should be able to install the new one.

EDIT: Just deleting the current ARC.exe file will not work. I had the same problem and had to uninstall the program through Control Panel. Once uninstalled I was able to install the new version.


The installer seems to have an issue with 2013! Interesting:) I put a new version up that should fix that.


That's 'cause it thought it was the end of the world silly.
