I tried to update my TomTom Home! But the update does not work!
Somehow I lost my msi.-downloaded installations -tool.

At the moment I have got the version 2.10.2. Th e new version is 2.10.3...
I get the error message:1f80bebe-d344-4228-ad22-db74f10e3c26.png

    Try this:

    1) Uninstall TomTom Home

    2) Download last "good" version from http://download.tomtom.com/sweet/application/releases/v2_9_91_411_win.exe

    3) Install it without running ie, uncheck the 'Run Home' tick box when installation completes

    4) Using Windows Explorer, navigate to
    C:\Program Files\TomTom HOME 2\xul (32 bit Windows)
    or
    C:\Program Files (x86)\TomTom HOME 2\xul (64 bit Windows)
    and find application.ini file

    5) Edit application.ini file (you might need admin privileges) and modify "Version=2.9.91.411" to "Version=2.9.94.450"

    6) Run TomTom Home. It will believe to be running latest version 2.9.94.450 and therefore not pull the update.

    I've tried and run up against "administrator privileges". Also it says the file number is only optional.
