I'm trying to install the Checker app on a new machine using the link from the wiki: https://cgjennings.ca/checker.html, and am getting an error 404 that the page is not found. I tested the link on two different OSes.

Any word on this issue or the app's availability?

Thanks.

I've pinged the developer's wife.

He may be at work, so it might not be until this evening. I could be wrong, though. :)

Thanks for the fast response, Tricia. I'll start trying again this evening.

Checker download is barely over 3 megabytes. We could host it ourselves in 'xx-nonproject' for instance... I can upload it there right now... :wink:

Except then it doesn't have the instructions. Hold off, please.

Instructions could be replicated on our Wiki page... Since the author created it specifically for LV, wouldn't it be logical to take on its keeping (until the next version at least)?

Incidentally, all download links on C.G.Jennings' page work fine for me (I just checked). :thumbs:

Yes, got a PM a few hours ago that it should all be working.
