IDE version update

HI,

I'm quite new to intellij and am having trouble updating intelliJ version from 10.0.1.
Everytime I see new version availability popup, I just click "Download Patch and Restart" which eventually does nothing but just bounce IDE itself without any updates.
I run IDE in documents folder and want to know if I can manually apply those patches.

Thanks in advance

Daniel,
maybe that's a similar problem as this one here. As a last resort, you can always download the complete installation package and install that instead.

Hope that helps,
Dirk

Thanks it worked by running it as administrator.

Shouldn't the updater check this before suggesting the update? Or print a better error message? Thanks.

The drastic solution is to save away your config files. See
http://mindprod.com/jgloss/intellij.html

Then uninstall, reboot and install the new version downloaded from the
website, then insert your config files, merging them intelligently
with the new ones.

A less drastic solution is to install the new version on top of your
existing one with Intellij NOT running, and after a fresh reboot to
ensure DLLs are flushed.

Politicians complain that Kindles and iBooks are killing jobs by
destroying the paper book industry.  I see it that they have create a way
to produce books for less than a third the cost without destroying forests
and emitting greenhouse gases in the process.  They have created wealth. 
They are encouraging literacy and cutting the costs of education.
