I had no trouble updating to 5.1.
I have just installed 5.2 update to my pc but when I click on the icon it says,

The item ‘DEUS_UPDATE.exe’ that this shortcut refers to has been changed or moved, so this shortcut will no longer work properly.

Do you want to delete this shortcut?

I have uninstalled it and then installed it and it keeps showing this message when I try to launch the update.

Like I said I had no trouble before what am I doing wrong? Any help would be appreciated.

I see there is a footnote regarding the V5.2. I am assuming you just load the main V5 download and it now defaults to 5.2?

When you download the software you get all versions, including historical ones. When you get to the point where you plug the computer cable into the controller a window will pop up. At this point there is a drop down box where you chose the version you want to update. It’ll be there ::g

What a palava, what I know about computers is not worth knowing.
Mcafee had quarantined a file (I did not realise this till after I factory reset my laptop and reinstalled windows 10) so I set it free, turned everything off to stop it just quarantineing it again and now I am running 5.2 or 5.2b03 to give it its full name.

Installing it rendered my x35 13” coil useless, so I reassigned the coil to my remote and that seems to have remedied that so fingers crossed all is well.

Did you fix it? If not delete all your old versions off your computer. Then install the new download again from the web. All should then be good 👍🏼

Try switching of your firewall and anti virus whilst you do it from scratch. It worked for me.

I’ve just update to 5.2... no issues other than it has deleted all my personal programmes. I’ll be testing it out tomorrow to see if the chirping has quietened any.
