I'm running into a problem with I/O designer, where it will not update the FPGA libraries via the Internet. I've had this issue since the last time I used IOD back in February, and I ended up with errors on some pin labels, because I chose to ignore the fact the IOD was not updating from the internet, so I don't want to make that mistake again. Here is the error log of the updater:
Current version of I/O Designer IOD9.5
Current version of library 095_000_001_010

This is an older version of IOD, but I don't have a choice on that; since IOD is now bundled with Expedition Enterprise, and we cannot move to vX because it breaks all our automation, I'm stuck with this version. If I can't get this version to update, I guess I will not be able to use it, because after getting burned in February, I won't let that happen again.
I'm trying to use IOD in "librarian" mode, to generate some generic symbols for a 896-pin Altera part.
Anyone have any ideas on why this is refusing to update?
