  1. New facebook update?


    One of our PCs has received a new facebook update through store for version 71.664.57956.0 whilst our main machine is not getting offered it. Is anyone else seeing an app update come through? Seems strange that our other machine remains on the older version 69.651.21211.0

  4. New facebook update?

    Hi:

    I do not use that app.
    However, MS -- like all other software companies -- releases software updates and patches to a portion of users at a time.
    In other words, the entire world does not get updates all at once.
    Just because you have more than one computer in your household does not mean they will get updates at the same time, either.
    This gradual release is called "throttling".
    It's done both to balance server load and to watch for problems that may necessitate (for example) pulling a particular update.

    It's nothing to worry about.

    MM

    @Scottyboy99, you can always go to the Store, Downloads and Updates, Check for Updates. That may get you the update quicker than waiting in line.

  6. Yes thank you. I'd already been doing that. I have auto updates of apps turned off so it's always a manual check. Unfortunately the update wasn't being offered on one PC, they both found app updates for camera and Mail & calendar but Facebook was only in the list on one machine and not the other. Maybe MM is right, I'll try again later. I just wanted to get the update done and dusted whilst the machine was on

    Scotty, if it wasn't in the list (Downloads and Updates), check "My Library". If not there, search for it and install it again. It may be "stuck".

  8. New facebook update?

    Thanks again. It's in my library. The issue is purely when doing a manual check for updates the new version isn't being offered for download. I can't see anything stuck. I still have the app in my start menu and it launches just fine. If I go to store and search for update the box says 'launch'. It just baffled me that one machine gets the update and the other is not yet finding it, so each machine is now running a different version of the app. Hopefully MM is right and sometimes app updates do not get offered all at the same time. As I'm thinking about it I'm sure some time ago I got a onenote update on one machine and not the other despite regular manual checks for updates. It didn't eventually show up on the other machine a day or two later. So I guess it does happen albeit rarely. It's just frustrating as I have just checked again and it still isn't offering. Just would of been nice to get it done and out of the way. I guess if it doesn't show within a couple days I'll assume it is problem of some kind

    Cheers

    One last trick, if you want to. Uninstall the one you have and re-install from store. Don't know how much setup is required cause I don't use it.

    Orrrrrrrrrrrrr........ just wait! *Biggrin

  10. I think that's good advice. What I will do is give it 24 hours and if no update becomes visible I will uninstall the app and then re install from the store as suggested

    cheers Wayne

  11. I got impatient and I uninstalled the app, then re installed the app. Unfortunately it's still showing the as the 'older' version. Seems strange MS is not offering the update to everyone, I can't understand why a small ish app update would put too much strain on servers. Guess I'll need to wait it out

    EDIT : now 2 days later and still no new Facebook update being pushed to our main machine. I checked again just now and received an update do mail and calendar app but nothing for Facebook. How can MS take so long to push a small non bandwidth hungry app update to all machines. It seems ridiculous one machine is running an older version to the other

  12. I still don't understand this, has anyone else seen the new facebook version? several days later and our main machine is still not getting it. Yet it is happily getting uodates for other apps through the store. I wonder if the facebook update got pulled soon after our second machine got it?

    New facebook update?

    Could it be that the update sees something installed on your computer that is incompatible so it won't download?

    @Scottyboy99

    I don't use the app, but I just went to store and installed it. This is the version I got. Don't know if this helps or adds to the confusion!

  15. Ok thank you. The version you have matched the one on my main PC that is not being offered the newer version. The only logical thing I can think is the version 71 was perhaps temporarily offered and then pulled ! I really appreciate the feedback though and the fact you went to the trouble of installing the app to let me know.

    cheers
