PC Access Executable Disappears

Problem Summary:

 

After running “f_update.exe” in the PC Access folder, the software will no longer start up.  Upon further investigation, it is determined that the PC Access executable file no longer exists.

 

Cause:

 

The “f_update.exe” is the utility that updates the PC Access software when a web update is performed.  Essentially, when a web update is performed, PC Access downloads the new version to a temporary file.  PC Access launches “f_update.exe” and then terminates. ”F_update.exe” deletes the PC Access executable, renames the temporary file to PC Access, and launches the new version.

 

If the “f_update.exe” is executed outside of the web update, it will delete the existing executable, and since there has been no download, there is no longer any executable.

 

Resolution:

 

Reinstall PC Access using the most recent executable in the PC Access Downloads folder and perform the “Check for New Version” feature to update to the latest release.
