Level 3

I downloaded and installed: System_Recovery_18.0.1_56582_Multilingual_Product

The download was direct off the Veritas website seeing I am a licenced user.

This version is stated as being SP1.

After installing, I launched Veritas Update.

It notfied me that SP1 was available.

Is this a bug seeing I already have SP1 installed?

Just for the heck of it, I clicked on install.

No prompt of the installation being complete. The app just closed. I started to wonder if it crashed.

Did a reboot iommediately after.

Launched System Recovery again and launched Veritas Update and did a check.

This time it reported that the system was up to date.

My question: Was this a minor patch to SP1 that was just installed? It seems like the install flag got reset after I clicked on install.

It's a minor bug but I'm a perfectionist. :)
