Where's Update Pack file for K-Lite Codec Pack v17.0.5? Empty Where's Update Pack file for K-Lite Codec Pack v17.0.5?

I notice there's been a change in Update Policy of the website.

As we all know, there is a new version 17.0.5 for the K-Lite Codec Pack as seen in page https://www.codecguide.com/changelogs_full.htm. Usually, I will then go to page https://www.codecguide.com/klcp_update.htm to download the respective Update Pack file. But that file has still NOT been there since you made it available on 2022-06-14. The current version in that last page is still 17.0.4. I would then have to download the full version file from the first page to update to v17.0.5.

So, what's going on? I don't see any notes regarding the policy change in those pages. And why the change? It's only a minor Point release after all. Kindly someone please explain the reasoning and inform the release date of the said Update Pack file. Thank you!

The update pack is only available for simple updates. Certain updates such as newer shell extensions require the normal installer. This has always been the case and will not change.

There will not be an update pack for 17.0.5. You should use the normal installer instead to update. You don't need to uninstall first.

Thank you for the reply, Admin.

Probably best idea to put a note in page https://www.codecguide.com/klcp_update.htm containing what you just said above every time there is "NO Update Pack for this Point Release and Full Installation is required". So noobs like me won't be confused again.

Another thing. After updating, this page popped out in my browser https://www.codecguide.com/configuration_tips.htm showing the "Latest Versions" List at the top part of the page. This is the first time I saw it; and I've been using K-Lite for over a year now. Probably better as well to relocate that List somewhere else, like in page https://www.codecguide.com/about_kl.htm or another where it is easier and intuitive to find by all users.

The latest version is shown on the front page.

The pack also contains an update checker to notify users about new versions.
