I think it is time we all get together an DEMAND and opt-out for these updates that are foisted on us EVERY TIME THAT WE EXECUTE THE ZWIFT PROGRAM. Not only are these annoying as h3ll when i’m ready to go for a ride, tonight they took the frustration level up several flights. After waiting for the thing download and update, whatever it did hosed my Zwift installation half way through the ride. I’m riding along as i’ve done hundreds of times before, a large group of riders comes along, just like a hundred times before. A message (i’ve never seen before) flashes up on the screen about getting a Pace Partner, and the whole damn program crashes. Kicks me completely to the desktop. Worse, I couldn’t get back into Zwift either. It would log in, then I would get a blank gray screen every time.
Enough is enough. Give us an opt-out, or a way to turn automatic updates off. That way, we can install them when we want them, if we want them, and after we have read through the forums to see if anyone else has had problems with them.
