Checking for updates failing

Post by RZR »

The check for updates functionality within GSM has been broken for the last month or so for me: every time I run it, it just returns the result "Unable to query website for release information. Please try again later."

Its not a DNS or reachability issue, since I can hit the site directly and do manual downloads. If I check the traffic, the program sends a GET via HTTP, and receives a 302 in response, with what looks like the correct parameters (I can see versions, etc.).

Am I the only one experiencing this? Is there anything I can check or to do resolve this?

Seems to be working just fine for me.
What version of GameSave Manager are you running? The query in-app is performed via the HTTP protocol, perhaps your system has cached a redirect request to the HTTPS protocol?

I'm not sure what the problem was... but I just did an upgrade/clean installation of Windows 11, reinstalled and it seems to be fine now.

Will keep an eye on it and diagnose further if it pops up again, thanks Matt.
