Updating each version is a major hassle.
In addition, when trying to update hosts the simple update feature simply does not work at all. When using the remote install option and pointing the file to an update MSI, installs to remote (i.e. non LAN) locations always fail saying "unable to complete action" with no other explanation.
When it is working, the software is great. However every single update is a long, annoying task that only becomes more so the more clients I install agents to. Are there any plans to address this, and if so when can we expect them?

We decided to completely re-write the update process to make sure the updater takes complete control over the process instead of delegating it to Microsoft's msiexec and the system. So we implemented this change in the current version (126.96.36.199).
This fix has one downside though - unfortunately, it will not work retrospectively. The new process will start to apply when updating Hosts version 188.8.131.52 (i.e. the current version) and later.
Could you please send us the description and screenshots of the update process (i.e. which checkboxes you choose, what
