Its been a while, but i want to play POC again. At first i ran into a flash related problem which has been solved now, but starting the game gives me another problem:

It asks me if i want to update Automatically or Manually, but whatever choice i make it doesnt do anything, and just pops right back up. As there's no way to close the popup box with the two choices, the game is kinda stuck here.. Anybody know a workaround?

greets

when selecting manual update did you get the next screen ?

Any mesages from windows 7, you should not block an internet access !

just saw that you have a windows 7 but which one ? so we can check for the problem - tell us more about the operating system, cpu etc.

Win7 build 7600 RTM Ultimate 32 bit

My box is

AMD Athlon 64 @3800, ~2.4GHZ
4gb Corsair DDR2
3x750 gb SATA2 hdd (raid0), 1x520 gb PATA
ASUS AH3650 (1680x1050x32) @ 60Hz
DirectX 11

*edit1* Aight i tried adding POC to the firewall exception (allowed) list, not working. I disabled the firewall completely, not working. I also disabled some services like the firewall from my antivirus, same result.

The game asks me for manual or automatic update, when i make a choice the same window pops back up instantly. Im not getting any messages from Windows telling me it blocked something, im also not getting any related messages in the windows event logs

we checked it with windows 7x64 enterprise, but I need a little time to install and check the ultimate.

meanwhile please reinstall the pocxxl version and try once more -- a small update will come soon anyway, but that might not help.

also try before this to use the commandline update
pocxxl update
and what happens then.

When i use the CLI (pocxxl update) it will just start POC from the beginning, asks me to start in a window or fullscreen.. When selecting either one, the manual/automatic update window pops back up..

I will try reinstalling POC and will notify you of how it progresses.

Reinstalling worked, it is now responsive to selecting the update type!

Thank you so much for your help!!

I encountered a similar issue with POC XXL auto-update:

if you select automatic updates and start the game without internet connection at a point in time POC wants to look for updates, you get a popup informing that the game was unable to check for updates (so far everything is all right).
The popup offers two buttons: "Abbrechen" and "Einstellungen>>>" (I am playing the German version, that would be something like "Abort" and "Settings>>>" in English). Pushing "Abbrechen" just makes the popup close and immediately re-appear. The only way to get past the popup is to disable automatic updates in "Einstellungen>>>" and push "Abbrechen".
With automatic updates enabled, the "Abbrechen" should just skip the updates for the current run and retry at the next start of the game but not block the game.
