I almost always have trouble updating ASM, but usually if I just keep trying 10 or so times it will eventually update. This time it absolutely refuses - I've tried about 100 times now over the past 3 days and it just won't do it. I start up ASM, see that it's at version .234 and see the green upgrade button for .235. I click the button. ASM tells me it needs to close. I click ok and it closes. An upgrade window briefly pops up, then ASM starts up again - to the same version .234. I click the upgrade button again and repeat the process. Rinse and repeat, like I said about 100 times at this point. Someone please tell me how in the name of all things good and decent I can get this software updated.
I don't know where that directory is, and I can't find it. The shortcut on the desktop doesn't have an option of opening the file location, so I can't get to it that way. My installation directory is E:\Games\ARK, and my data directory is E:\ARK Server Manager, but neither of those locations has a file/folder structure that matches the "latest" folder I downloaded. My E:\ARK Server Manager folder contains the following directories: Logs, Profiles, Servers, and SteamCMD. Any idea where else I could try looking?
Thanks rulin, I didn't think of trying through task manager. I don't know what's going on in that appdata folder, but there's not just the ASM directory there - there's a bunch of other stuff that seems to be ASM-related. Here's a screen shot of all the folders in that directory. The one at the top that was modified last October is where I landed when I had task manager open the file location, and it looks to have the same file/folder structure as the "latest" download. Can you or Beals confirm that is where I should dump the newest files, and is there anything I should back up, first?
hmm not sure look in the folder see if any files match if i was you i would set up a new one asm directory following my video guid and either move your server files to a locations in c or point it to where its saved now in asm
Well, it was a bit nerve-wracking, but I figured it was best to just start new with ASM, and it looks like everything worked. I have a new directory created, and was able to import my server configuration and files. Looks like it's all working at this point, so that's good. We'll just need to see if I run into trouble with the next ASM update. Thanks all for the input!
