On Win10, the launcher update apparently does not kill the launcher itself before applying the updates, which caused a series of “cannot delete file” errors (since ZwiftLauncher.exe and Patcher.dll, among others,were still open). Skipped those, got an unannounced reboot, restarted the launcher, which again indicated it had an update to apply, and on this second attempt the installer correctly pointed out it was attempting to update an app that was already running. That got me over the hurdle.
Terrible experience so far with game resolution as soon as took the update. 1080p now unusable - scenery and all other riders juddering / jagging so bad it’s giving me eye / head ache. Always been smooth as butter before update. 720p res suffering the same, just not as obvious. Low res is just poor generally.
Any suggestions Zwift?

Hi Chris, it’s constant so far. Currently on 720p setting, only just usable but when Watopia sun moves into view the sun is strobing really bad . Wouldn’t be very good for someone who has a medical aversion to that sort of thing. Having the HUD on or off makes no difference either.
See @Dave_ZPCMR’s post, the new launcher was forced during the new update, you may have had it already if you have done a reinstall within the last month or two. I was on the old one, which was better, until yesterday. The new launcher is causing some minor graphic stuttering. Maybe it is worse on internal graphics cards?
I had about the same upgrade experience. It doesn’t exactly build trust in the software. I don’t see any graphic stuttering, so that is positive. I upgraded from a newly installed installer (don’t remember the version)
Launcher updates appear to use a standard Windows installer - and killing the app you’re about to update is a basic feature of that. Nor sure why this happened in the first place. Not sure why the first install didn’t detect the launcher was still running (and hence hit the “can’t delete” error on all the components replaced by the update), while the second pass at least did. Looks like a setup issue in how they use the installer. Since the launcher is updated only seldom, that path is not as tested as the regular update one (which does not use the Windows installer).
I created a topic but maybe have a to post also here.
Analyse bug after zwift update:
Today I proceed on zwift update. I can see double record is not working properly. End of the race are not available (HT source) I did 2 races today, First is good the second no. My friends have same issue but on the opposite race.
@Wes every few updates (Apple TV) the mini map changes to the ‘perspective’ POV, as opposed to directly overhead, for some period of time, and then reverts to the direct overhead POV after a while. Please, please, PLEASE add the option to keep the perspective POV on the ATV app. It is clearly already there somewhere, so just make it selectable for those of us who want it. Thanks!
Still no mention of a fix for free ride issue when using Wattbike Atom through Apple TV. Free ride section still stuck on the erg mode power level from the previous interval. Works with Wattbike Atom and Zwift running on IPad.
