I guess my ideal situation is this:

Run Sumo in the system tray at startup and have it slowly scan through the files without lagging too much CPU. When updated software is found, a notification window pops up. Right now I have to close 1-2 windows before SUMO finishes the full scan.

This will help the user keep his or her software updated.

Hi, yesterday I bought Sumo 5.5.4...(because of the portable version)

An important prerequisite for me buying software is often the avaiability of a portable version.

Now to my suprise with the first launch my newly bought (portable) Sumo gives me the notification that an update is available.
Now I thought I had the latest (portable) version.
Whats more its an installer version.
Thats so sad :cry:

Hello,

Your licence of course allows use of updated version. Then, no worries, go to 5.5.5 :)
