I presume you are not using any of the plug-ins.  If 3.228 works for you, keep it.

It says that on all the builds so far. Just visit the Support site to download the later software.

There was one user (No need to mention his name) who widely reported problems with builds 3.236 and 3.271. His advice, based on his own experience, was to downgrade to 3.204, and then use the automatic upgrade feature to get to 3.228 (the only way to get 3.228 - it wasn't available as a separate download).
Other users reported good results with that suggestion.

However, after having other computer issues, and doing a complete uninstall and reinstall, he was able to get 3.271 (as I recall) working, and has reported that he is also running fine with 3.296, the latest build as of today. (I don't know if he tried each of the builds in between or not).

So, 3.236 might not be as buggy as originally thought, but perhaps it (and 3.271) were prone to issues if there were other undetected file problems on the system.

That user has said that for each upgrade, he does a full uninstall (backing up his AHX files first), and then a full reinstall, and has had no trouble. You may want to try that, as another option.

great.  since update button doesn't work, we have to go to x10 software page and sift thru each update ourselves.  OK.  done.  but I missed that new onalertmobile thing and installed it too.  Now AHP won't just open cuz I dont have registration for it and it sticks at that screen and I have to close manually.

Two questions:

1) anyone know how to remove a module like this installed that I don't want w/o uninstalling ALL ahp and starting over?  (not an option!)

2) since a module probably cannot be removed by itself as in #1, I'm stuck with it.  Anyone willing to send me a reg code to make this stupic screen go away?

Find the file ahp_plugin.xml (it should be in C:\Program files\ActiveHome Pro - or wherever you installed it).
Open the file, and delete the appropriate line for the plugin you want to remove.
Then  you should be able to restart AHP.
If you aren't sure which is the correct line, then try each line one at a time, changing the beginning part ("<plugin") to "<noplugin", and then trying again.

And for everyone's future reference, starting with 3.296, you only have to download the main installer. It will update *all* the files it finds for your plug-ins.
The only time you would have to use an individual installer is if it's your first time installing a plug-in.
