I use Quicken to manage my money (a.k.a herd cats). This morning I launched Qucken and it politely indicated that an update was available and asked whether to download & apply the update now? I selected "yes" - and the window closed.
Nothing else seemed to happen. No other window popped up. Thinking that maybe it had applied the update and closed, I launched Quicken again. A dialog came up indicating that Quicken was already running and that if this message kept occurring I should reboot the computer (yes - the suggested fix was basically toggle the power switch).
Opening Task Manager and viewing the network activity tab showed a slow trickle of data. Popping open Wireshark showed me the IP address, and using nslookup determined the address tracked back to quicken.com. I used Wireshark for two reasons: where was the conversation to, and was anything actually being downloaded?
10 minutes later a dialog finally came up stating the update was ready to install - and pressing the "next" button gave me an installation progress bar.
Yo! Quicken!! Bad UI!
