Suggestion: Check for SUMO update first?

Post by ander » Fri Aug 11, 2017 8:36 am

I've noticed that when I run SUMO, it scans for my installed apps, arranges the list, goes online, and then checks to see if there's a SUMO update. Since I run it only about once a month, a new SUMO version is usually available; so rather than continuing with the old version, I exit and get the new one, then start over.

Why not have SUMO check for its own update before it does anything else? Then the user isn't left sitting there, waiting, while it does the other things, possibly for no reason.

I'll agree with that. It's a PITA to get part way through then have to either update and reload, or remember to update later.

Since a few version SUMo checks for its onw update BEFORE checking for all other (while 1st "loading" sequence). Is it OK for you ? Isn't it what you see in SUMo on your systems ?

Kyle, like the OP, I hadn't run Sumo for a month or so. I'm now running latest version so will look forward to an improved experience (and run it more frequently).

Kyle, I agree with you that Sumo checks for its own update before it checks for other software updates. But before that, it scans/loads all the existing software on my pc. The time taken is small, but the frustration is still there. Is there any way Sumo can check for its own update BEFORE it does the software scan - note scan, not check.
