Windows 10 home - updating qbt from 4.1.5 to 4.1.6
« on: July 05, 2019, 09:54:05 AM »
qBittorrent version and Operating System
ver 4.1.5 (x64) attempting to update to 4.1.6 (x64)
Windows 10 home. 64bit

What is the problem:
each time when I open bt; it detects that it is an older version and promts for an update. I download, and it installs, and even disassociates itself and re associates iteself with magnet links / being the default client for torrent files - so I know it's installed etc.. but the version still stays @ 1.5 and never actually updates to 1.6 - so each time I open BT again; it just keeps cycling over the same process..

What is the expected behavior:
to overinstall from the previous version; same as all other version skins.

Steps to reproduce:
update using the check for updates link; follow all prompts and attempt to install.

Extra info(if any)

there also seems to be an issue that chrome now opens and additional tab to open a magnet link before qbittorrent picks it up - as before it just used to open directly into QBT. Is this a chrome behaviour that can be prevented or is it also something to do with QBT?
