The Igor-based installer could also do this - checking some string on our website vs. a string stored somewhere in a WM folder at the time the package was installed (if no string, recommend an update). Maybe better than internal strings housed inside experiments.

Also could check the version Igor, other contents of the User Procedures folder and other folders - for better diagnostics of what may go wrong.

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

done - InstalledVersion.txt (in the package) and CurrentVersion?.txt (webster) must mesh (check by hand) for this to work.
