Success on Win 10

It updated for me.

Background

As expected, at least the Windows version will run in the computer's background unless the user goes to the General Settings and unchecks the 'background run' box.

Worked for me, but ...

It worked for me on Win 10 Pro, but the install was unusual in that it prompted me for my payment region (country) before launching the install. I don't recall ever seeing that prompt before. I ran the update from the internal update link that was shown when launching express.

I had no payment region prompt. I ran the update from the popup 'new version available' window.

Yeah, I bet the update popup prompt overlaid the "Store" selection on the underlying screen, and somehow I got multiple clicks when selecting the update prompt. I use the touchpad controls on my Alienware laptop instead of a real mouse, and sometimes it is easy to "fat finger" those controls.

Working now, so unsure why there was an issue, it's always worked before without issue, clearly a glitch somewhere between my keyboard and Garmin.

I open GE and it will ask if I want to download the newer version. Answer yes and it just sits there, never automatically downloads it.

In GE I have to go to "About" check for a new version and then download.

No glitches observed on my updates.

Maybe make sure your AV is temporarily disabled.

Be patient...I found a long wait on a Win 7 Pro machine but it was using an HDD. My Win 10 Pro machine, with an SSD, probably took about 15 seconds for the GE screen to appear.

As above, it worked later so a glitch somewhere rather than AV issue but thanks for the thought

If your AV has to be disabled, that would worry me immensely.

Two Installs

I installed this on two different computers just minutes apart. One went fairly fast, the other was very, very, very slow. Somewhere between here and Garmin, there likely were internet issues.

On another note:

If you have to disable your antivirus to do any installation, you need one of two things:

1. A different program to install,

2. A different antivirus.

With programs of integrity and a quality antivirus, you will never have to disable your antivirus.

I have to say, I have been a

I have to say, I have been a PC user since the early 90's. I moved to Linux around 2006 and Mac in 2012. I have never had to disable antivirus to install a program. I can agree with the statement upthread that "If you have to disable the antivirus to install a program..."

Norton used to be the worst about this. I haven't used an antivirus program since I left Windows in 2006.

I have had some programs tell me to disable anti virus.

I never did because then the door would be open for an attack. I never had an issue.

It worked on my Windows 10 Pro machine but took over 45 minutes to install. I almost cancelled the install a few times but I was patient. Maybe try again and wait.
