While I cannot reproduce this problem here on any of my machines, I
went ahead and rebuilt the updater package -- making sure not to make
the one mistake that I know of that leads to the error message from
your log file.

I successfully tested the rebuilt updater on 3 WinXP machines and 1
Win 7 machine.


If this still does not work (which seems likely, given that you say
that also does not work), then the thing I would like to know
is the time stamp and file size of the file


it should be time stamped May 31, 2013 and the file size should be 746

If that is ok on your computer, then I would like you to do a search
for "Ifeffit.dll" and tell me where else that file is found on your


PS: I added links to earlier version of the updater package to the
bottom of the Demeter home page.  Won't help in this case, but it may
be useful in  the future.
