||Update Service does not time out when checks for updates take too long. If the network connection is slow or lost, NI Update Services appears to continue checking for updates.
Workaround: Either allow NI Update Service to finish checking for updates or close NI Update Service and check for updates later.
A notice to update NI Update Service is hidden when redisplaying NI Update Service after downloading an update. When the UI is displayed again after building a suite of updates (because you chose to save only or because the installer errored or was cancelled), the message is not shown with the rest of the list of updates.
Workaround: Restart NI Update Service.
||Incompatibilities are confusing when they are caused by a product contained in an update. Often updates have incompatibilities that are not caused by the product that the update is for, but by a dependency that the update installs.
||When an update fails during installation, some settings in the Windows registry may remain on the system, causing the update to not appear in NI Update Service anymore.
Workaround: Visit ni.com/downloads to find the update online, download it again, and rerun the installer in repair mode.
||The NI Update Service startup task does not always run at logon on Microsoft Windows XP after installing NI software and rebooting. It also does not run at startup to detect if a regularly scheduled check for updates was missed.
Workaround: Manually start NI Update Service.
