    this is XP Home, single user (as far as i know i have full admin rights)

    1) i installed TTax Deluxe Plus State 2005 (purchased from Costco) accepting
    default install options
    2) i ran it and exited
    3) i downloaded the Dec 13 manual update from TTax web site
    4) i ran the update, it unpacked its files into C:\Program
    File\TurboTax\Deluxe 2005\Updates
    5) i launched TTax and it said there were updates to uinstall, i clicked
    "Install Updates"
    6) nothing happened

    i tried steps 5 and 4 a few more times with the result always being step 6.
    turned off virus protection and re-tried, nothing happened. i tried
    manually running "update.exe" and nothing happened. i uninstalled TTax,
    deleted the Updates directory and the update file i downloaded, reinstalled
    TTax, redownloaded the patch and ran it with the same result.

    what am i doing wrong? is there some trick to get the update to work? do i
    have to actually create and save a return before the update will run?

    the patch file is "wp_turbotax_1040_dlxr_fnd_2005_00a_lfp.exe" at 26.5MB
    (27,884,112 bytes) with File Version "wUpd.2005.07.00.01", is that correct?

    I had this problem also. I exited the program, reloaded it, went to
    One-Click Updates (so it tried to d/l the updates again) and then did
    the install. This time it did the install properly. It seems to be a
    glitch but one that can be easily overridden.

    Good luck,

    thanks. did you first try the manual update? i haven't tried updating from
    within TTax or using the Update shortcut on the TTax program group. i
    prefer using manual updates when i have the option (so that i can keep the
    update if i have to reinstall the pgm and the online update isn't available
    at that time).

    i guess i can try using the One-Click Update, but i'd prefer to get the
    manual update working.

    No I didn't do the manual update. The updates are saved on the
    computer though so if you had to do it again, you could.
