Cannot update CWbyBL period

I have been trying all day. I log in, app tells me new version (4.x something) is available I click download and it just hangs. All firewalls are off, including win 10 stuff. No AV.
Guess I'll try again tomorrow,.
Very glad that I am happy with splat as I stated before, it's all I use but I do keep BL updated and open it occasionally. 
Maybe it's mad at me for ignoring it.

    Loads of us have had this issue with updating BandLab Assistant.
     
    Just download the latest BandLab Assistant and install it:
    https://www.bandlab.com/products/desktop/assistant
     
    After that, your CbB update should run smoothly.

    Nah there's definitely something wrong in the Bandlab app at least on my end. Through that little Bandlap app I was able to update Cakewalk as usual, but the Bandlab app itself won't update and keeps saying 'Updated Failed' and the app just stays stuck on that and I have to restart pc in order to clear it - AND this Bandlab app just screwed with my Windows update feature as well when trying to update Bandlab and I'll post about that in a separate thread.

    Maybe it's a Win 10 related issue?  I'm on an older Win 7 OS and this latest BLA  and CbB update and install was the smoothest I've experienced so far. I did skip the last update prior to this one however. I understand that updates have been streamlined to just the files required from the previous most current install. Just saying - my latest was a full install, and it was really pain free.

    So I did as Msmcleod suggested. Got the asst but I do not see any updates.
    Oh well. Guess there aren't any, just the asst

    I just opened Bandlab Assistant:

    Selected Apps (notice I did NOT update Assistant, and took the screenshot after the CbB update)
    and now I have this:

    At the risk of appearing to "talk down" (I'm just trying to help), did you select Apps?
    Is your version #2018.11?

    the reason why some ppls band lab wont update is because your pc is using edge or explorer  as its default browser. you have to go to settings in windows and make chrome your default browser found in default apps

    No problems here using Firefox either, so it may be an MS Edge/Explorer related issue.  Standards and all that ...

    Er no, not really correct. On FIrefox here and everything goes great.

    Each time there is a Bandlab Assistant update i down load it from their website. I then uninstall the previous version and install the new version.

    Since i’ve been doing that i have had zero problems.

    I can then update Cakewalk

    Cheers.

    What is interesting is that I cannot even browse to the BandLab web page any more. I have AV and Firewall turned off, and can get there from another PC , but not from my DAW... it used to work. And Chrome is listed as my Default browser and is all I use... When I attempt to get to the web site it just hangs the system indefiniely...
