PrusaSlicer 2.3.0 Final - Automatic Software Updater Issue

I am not quite sure I should submit an issue on Github, so wanted to ask here first.

Every time I start PS 2.3 (final) (or at least the first time I launch it every day), I get a notification that a new version is available (the same version that I currently have installed (2.3.0).

I used the standalone installer for Windows to set it up, and I uninstalled all my previous versions - including the betas and RCs that I had manually downloaded from the Github releases page.

I have tried letting it do this update a few times, and it goes through the process (looks like the standalone installer running again), and it fails at the end.

Am I the only one?

One more point...

I am using the desktop shortcut to launch it, which uses the command as shown below:

C:\Users\xxxxxx\AppData\Local\Programs\Prusa3D\PrusaSlicer\prusaslicer-updater.exe /silent -restartapp prusa-slicer.exe -startappfirst

Is this shortcut the issue (since it appears to be launching the updater program)?

I also noticed this morning that this shortcut was partially broken, since the icon wasn't correct, so I fixed that by using the Properties - Change Icon dialog (which gave an initial error that it couldn't find a particular installer executable file).  

I also pinned the program to my taskbar (once it was running), and if I launch with that pinned item on the taskbar, the update checker doesn't pop up.

I think so yes.  You shouldnt be running the updater to start the program, just run prusa-slicer.exe

@neophyl

OK - thanks.  Maybe I will post an issue on Github regarding this strange configuration for the desktop shortcut that the installer creates.
