This UAB code so far from complete, they is no way it is usable.

One of many problems I just ran into is if the DeplyProcessor can not move an update, it simply deletes the files from its 'DownloadFilesBase' location. If it copied a few files over, then ran into an error, it deletes all the files it copied, leaving incomplete installation. Problematic at best.

Also when determining which files to download, UAB runs a hash and if the file is open, it blows an exception.

I have been in and out of this UAB code, and I can not even remotely imagine how designers had it in mind for this to work?

Anf if that is not enough, this board is constantly failing when posting messages. Unbelievable.

I Hear Ya, re: board unstable...

I have had emails with Betsy @ Microsoft on this issue.

I'd say that workspaces are the one big failure for .net and need to be re-built from the start.
