We have been using the bitrock autoupdater to allow our software to be update when ever there is a new version. While the code work perfectly ok with Windows XP and Windows 7, we are getting the following behavior from Vista users:
Is this a known issue of the autoupdater? Is the anything we can do about it or should we write our own code? The original bug reported by our Vista users can be found here.

Finally, we have been able to reproduce it. The problem is that there is a conflict with one of the dlls in the working directory (dist), MPR.dll. This is happening because dlls in the parent directory takes precedence. You can find more information here.
To solve the issue, you just have to unpack the autoupdte to a subdirectory of dist or to its own folder under ubuntuone (any location without the extra dlls).
