      Eric, so then I should always install the smaller packages? I just did after reading this, but it still gives me the same message in Help to check for updates, then the listing to download it again.

      Let me ask my question this way, and I would think it would save you bandwidth...Is there any way to know for sure that you are up to date after checking for updates in Help offers you to redownload? If you don't have that feature, maybe you could have the update check results report back a last change revision of the same version? Even if I right-click on that smaller ntp61_Setup.exe file, all the "Property" menus say it is only 6.1 (no indication of a new 6.1.1 or build number).

      Thanks, and have loved using Notetab for as many years as I can remember.
