    Sorry that I seem to have kicked a hornet’s nest – I was just reading that people had had problems, and found a way that worked for me. But yes, updating etc is not going to work. And yes, GIT pulls are best…

    BUT for real Noobs (been there, done that), GIT might be a bit “weird”, while ZIP is recognized.

    Bottom line:
    This all works - use @yo-less instructions, then either go the ZIP route (where you have to remove the -master) OR the GIT route (nice & easy).

    Thanks everyone for finding all the problems. Let’s leave this with the conclusion that THIS AWESOME MAGIC MIRROR works on Win-boxes too!

    You are right, git seems a bit irritating and uncomfortable at first and of course downloading and unzipping works at the moment. Neither strawberry nor I wanted to bash on you!
    We just wanted to point out the downside of the zip approach 🙂

    @amanzimdwini Nawwwwwwwwwww you’re okay not to worry…

    I’m a ‘windows’ guy and not a linux guy but once you do it a few times… it just becomes second nature… 🙂 PLUS windows is a pretty mindless thing… it’s easy because they’ve done all the work for you… what fun is that? LOL
