I might be missing something, but how do you get the icon on the system tray or does it just show when you get an update?
That appears to be the scenario, Al. But it apparently shows up when it THINKS there are updates.

 

Actually, upon further ponderance, I bet if I told it not to check for updates, it wouldn't show up at all. I think maybe it only shows up upon checking for updates. I would test this theory, but I already uninstalled it.  It never worked correctly, and I dunno why I thought it would now.

 

Something is also wonky about it showing up twice in my uninstaller.

Again today, there's the icon, but there are no updates.  Uninstall time, I guess.  ODM still buggy.

As a test, I installed WB 10.74.  ODM told me there was an update:

And ODM shows 'Update' in the list.  

 

What may be a good idea for us is to put any updates at the top instead of like here, where WB is all the way at the bottom - some may be missing it - think there is no update when there is.

Yes Sean, good idea.  As for me, there were no updates.  I didn't get the popup window that you show in your screenshot. I only got the one you get on right click. Which is why I think the icon only shows up upon checking for updates, which confused this redneck.

Apparently the quote system is messed up...lol.

Thanks Jim. I don't have it set to start when windows starts. I did use it to reinstall WB from that little problem 1903 has. I still like the old fashion way by going to my account.

I'm not bothering with ODM. Going to my account is much less hassle free.

Sorry to hear that - we would really appreciate the feedback to make it better.

I'll give it a shot but if it plays with mine head I'm gonna shoot it.

Ok...so I installed ODM without a problem. Showed the apps I have installed plus those I do not. It didn't say there were any updates nor did the task bar icon come up when I did a reboot. We'll see how long it lasts.

T-Man here did most all of the code writing for the new ODM - he told me he does not write bugs, ever, in his code so it should work error free till the end of time

Thanks for the feedback, Uvah.
