VLC Media Player 3.0.14 fixes broken Windows automatic updater

Quote

VideoLan has released VLC Media Player 3.0.14 to fix an issue affecting Window users and causing the software's auto-updater not to launch the new version's installer automatically.

"VLC users on Windows might encounter issues when trying to auto update VLC from version 3.0.12 and 3.0.13," VideoLan explained. "We are publishing version 3.0.14 to address this problem for future updates."

@hazelnutthanks a lot 🙂

this window was showing me by searching for updates manually

Quote

VideoLAN and the VLC development team present VLC 3.0.14 "Vetinari".

Please READ!

 

The upgrade you are doing will not launch the installer, because of a bug from our team. We are extremely sorry about that.

 

You will need to manually launch from your temp folder after the download.

 

This upgrades fixes security issues in the updater and in the application. Please update.

only for Windows users

Short version:

  • - versions 3.0.12 to 3.0.13 are not able to update automatically anymore, and will require user action
  • - versions 3.0.11 and earlier should update automatically to 3.0.14

Description:

This notice applies to VLC 3.0.13 and VLC 3.0.12 users.
Due to a mistake introduced in the automatic updater code, updates will be downloaded, verified for integrity, but will not be installed. This is bad and we would like to apologize for this.

Post mortem explanation:

On May 10th 2021, the VideoLAN organization released VLC 3.0.13, and enabled auto updates.
This usually would be fairly straightforward, a prompt would appear informing you that an update is available, you click download and install, and that would be the end of it.
However and unfortunately, for this particular update, a few additional tedious (if not painful) steps will be necessary.
The issue was introduced in 3.0.12, but it didn't become obvious until we started rolling out 3.0.13.
While the issue was fixed for 3.0.14, we can't rely on that fix for people who've installed 3.0.12 already.

Here is a link to the VideoLAN page that trium has quoted from which gives more instructions on how to update to VLC 3.0.14.

Basically you have to update to 3.0.14 by doing a new install, or if you have already downloaded the update through VLC itself it tells you where to find it so you can run it manually:

I just ran the 3.14 installer as it shows in my link to the Bleepingcomputer article above .

Not a new install, it just overwrote the previous install as it usually does.

I hardly ever update from within the program itself and always run the installer over the top instead.

I tried it from inside VLC itself and got the warning as per triums' first quote.

It downloaded the installer and then I had to go to %TEMP% in File Explorer to double click it to install.

For the non-technical:
%temp% is simply Windows shorthand for your Windows temporary folder, you can type it in instead of having to type the full pathname. (You can use upper or lower case).
It typically takes you to- C:\Users\{yourusername}\AppData\Local\Temp

As I said, just download the installer from VLC website, double click it and it will install over the top of your previous build.

No need for going into TEMP etc.
