Second Quarter Build 22B.00.00 Posted

As of 11pm EDT Apr 11, 2018, we completed posting and download testing our second quarter CHT Build, numbered 22B.00.00. The latest WebupdaterC10 version associated with this latest build is: APR.11.2018.C110418

IMPORTANT

If your Webupdater C10 is dated prior to APR.11.2018, you MUST visit our Subscriber Download Site to download (manually) our brand new "Pre-Installer" in the form of a file called CHTSETUP.ZIP.

It contains CHTSETUP.EXE and a security certificate. The included certificate is optional. However it is provided, in order to moderate the challenge raised by Windows 10, when you take the time to install the certificate first, by clicking on it. If you decide for the certificate first, please install it to "Trusted Root Certification Authorities" and to "Trusted Publishers" for best results.

CHTSETUP.EXE is what we call a "Pre-Installer". Feel free to run it any time in order to get a "news brief" about what we're up to. It opens a text file on your desktop, called CHTTODO.CLW that we hope you'll read regularly, bi-weekly, or even daily. What's in this text file is explained briefly below.

CHTSETUP.EXE also provides the latest versions of 4-5 CHT UTILITY APPS that we're currently featuring. We change these periodically to bring them foremost to your mind. They tie in with some of the "PLEASE TRY THIS" tasks which are part of our CHT "NEWS BRIEF". Included currently is a newer version of HNDBRWCL.EXE, the CHT forum browser, and 3 others.

CHTSETUP.EXE also creates a small, separate set of menus on your PC, located under the "&" symbol near the top of your Windows 10 menu. We'll keep this menu short, under 10 items, with some items changing from time-to-time. However, always found in this list are two key items: "@CHT SETUP", and "@WEB UPDATER C10". They're our key installation and upate applications.

HND_WBUPDATERC10.EXE is our "Installer-Updater". It detects when build changes or updates to builds have been posted, which you may not yet have on your system. To check whether there's anything new, by way of a new build or a build update, you must start "WEBUPDATER" from the "@WEB UPDATER C10" menu and click "Continue". It logs in and displays the last-available build number. Click "continue" again and it scans your containers to determine when any are out of date. If it finds NONE ARE out of date, it skips quickly through the available list. Whenever containers requiring updating are detected, it downloads these first. Finally, in step 5, the newly-acquired containers are extracted to your system.

CHTSETUP.EXE finishes by opening a file called "CHTTODO.CLW" located in /accessory/hnd/todo/. This text file contains our quite detailed "NEWS-BRIEF" updated several times a week. The file is structured in reverse chronological order, with the newest entries at the bottom. There are four distinct sections as follows:

reddot.png SECTION 0- "NEWS BRIEF" (UPDATED SEVERAL TIMES A WEEK)
reddot.png SECTION 1- "CHT TODO LIST" (WORK YET TO BE COMPLETED BY GUS 2018)
reddot.png SECTION 2- "CHT COMPLETED LIST" (COMPLETED WORK SO FAR 2018)
reddot.png SECTION 3- "DEVELOPERS - PLEASE TRY THIS" (PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT)
