 Lunis,

I am running KB2020 and I have downloaded the latest version of the Commands Updater.   When I run the program I get the error message KnowBrainer Professional 2018 is required for the installation.  How can I get the latest version of the updater installed?

 Thanks,

Tee

Same.

Just bought and installed KB2020 and now wondering if I should run the KB Commands Updater Installer Ver. 1.0.5 and, if not, is there some other version I run?

Don't run the KB Commands Updater at all?

Please advise.

Thanks,

The miserable KnowBrainer Command Updater 2018 keeps popping up everywhere. We have been trying to find and assassinate it because KnowBrainer 2018 only existed for a few minutes. Try KBCommandsUpdater (2020) which is a direct download. Your browser has probably buffered an older PDF file

 

It really necessary to update KnowBrainer 2020 at this point but it's good to have the updater utility ready.

Lunis,

Surely you meant to say  "It is not really necessary to update KnowBrainer 2020 —"  Rather than  "It really necessary to update KnowBrainer 2020  —."

 I downloaded the updater shown in your post but when I ran it, I got the error message:

"KBCommandsUpdater.msi can't be downloaded securely."

Thanks for your help with this.

Tee

Sorry about that speak-o. Yes you are right. 

 

You are receiving that message because the download address http://www.knowbrainer.com/downloads/KBCommandsUpdater.msi doesn't begin with HTTPS:, like secure sites. It is generally assumed that any time you are downloading from our website, you would already know that it's safe but we probably should change the download site address to reflect that it is secure. We will put it on our webmasters list but you can safely download

The download is perfectly safe but as previously explained, the address begins with HTTP rather than HTTPS. You can ignore that warning We've downloaded several times over the last 48 hours

Lunis,

My problem is that when I click on the link you provided, I get the error message: "KBCommandsUpdater.MSI can't be downloaded securely" and the only thing I get in the Downloads folder is a 1.03 MB File named "Unconfirmed 195278.crdownload."

Update:

I went to the settings for Microsoft Edge/Privacy, search, and services and turned off the Microsoft Defender Smart screen option. That let me download the file "KBCommandsUpdater.MSI."  When I ran the file, I still get the message "KnowBrainer Professional 2018 is required for the installation."

We do not know why you keep getting the KnowBrainer 2018 updater but this http://www.knowbrainer.com/downloads/KBCommandsUpdater.msi link is the KnowBrainer 2020 download. Try emptying your browser buffer. We just uninstalled and reinstalled the KnowBrainer 2020 updater without issue. The KnowBrainer 2018 updater should not even exist

 

PS: You don't have to disable Defender to download this installation. When prompted, click the 2nd link which is something like “more options” and you should be able to bypass the download warning

Hi Lunis

I am getting the same problem.

 

When I try to install the KnowBrainer updater I get an error message saying that KnowBrainer 2018 has to be installed.  Then the app installation terminates.

 

Solution?

Thank you

It looks like we screwed up by accidentally replacing the KnowBrainer 2020 updater with the KnowBrainer 2018 updater...AGAIN. We will contact RĂ¼diger Wilke to help us out again and make the appropriate updater available.

Thanks to Rüdiger, we have just replaced the KnowBrainer 2018 updater with the KnowBrainer 2020 KBCommandsUpdater at http://www.knowbrainer.com/downloads/KBCommandsUpdaterInstaller_2020.msi Note that your current download PDF information is also up-to-date so either download should now work

 

PS: Windows 11 users will receive dire warnings about this download but it is safe.

Most likely because of Norton. In my Microsoft Edge, I get a warning, but may get past it. It is because the KB download page is not HTTPS.

 

Try this link instead:

 Edgar,

 

Microsoft Edge issues a nasty warning but should allow you to go through with the download with a couple more clicks

@Rüdiger: Great! Work like a charm.

I suspect that it was Norton but Norton is rarely silent about something like this. Let me look at its event log… No, nothing in the log (today's successful trial was logged).

Thanks for the quick response!

When I click the link from Mr. Wilke I am able to download the .msi file.

 

When I try to install it, I still get the message requiring KnowBrainer 2018 and then after that get a "Installation Incomplete" dialogue box saying that the installation was terminated.

Gentlemen,

Many thanks for the feedback, particularly the screenshots. Very often, a picture says more than 1,000 words, and I can see the mistake been made here. Now please work with me.

Actually, the message is a misnomer. A mistake which happened when copying from the previous version, but not updating the text, which should read "this utility requires KnowBrainer 2020".

Effectively, this is what the installer searches for, before if goes on, or terminates otherwise:

[ProgramFilesFolder]\KnowBrainer\KnowBrainer 2020\KBPro.exe

So, does this file exist in the specified path on your systems?

I will update the installer and post about it later today.
