Anyone else have to install FxFactory updates twice?

I've just updated to FxFactory 5.0.6 but it made me download and install the update twice before it would take. I'm wondering if anyone else has to double-install FxFactory, like me, every time they have an update.

I don't know if this is a problem at their end or whether, if I'm the only one this happens to, I need to simply do a clean new install of FxFactory. Or does this constant double-install thing happen to other people too?

It installs something and then downloads something and then installs that. Confusing and has been happening for several versions now.

Could be that FXFactory itself updates and then the FXFactory plugins update.

Thanks for that feedback, guys. It means it's not just me that it's happening to. One thing I have noticed is that both of the downloads are exactly the same size. I just hope that they can streamline future updates into a single download!
