Description

Problem

By accident the Clock demo in "Demos" folder of MUI share the same name of the Clock utility of the Enancher Package of AmigaOS4

Analysis

In case you have, atleast once lanched the Clock demo of MUI, then anytime you strat the Updater program of the Enancher Package, the name version of this MUI demo will conflct with the Clock utility of the Enancher … this prevent you to check and download correctly the Clock utility using Updater
When you open the Updater

Enhancement recommendation

Well, perhaps changing the name of this demo from "Clock" to "MUI Clock" or something similar could help

There might always be a collision with similar or the same application names. I'd suggest to adapt the logic of the Updater instead of having to rename arbitrary foreign applications.

Why does the Updater search in paths of foreign applications at all? MUI is no part of the Enhancer package. So why is its folder taken care of?

I don't know exactly how it could be done, i mean .. there is no a fixed path (apart for the obvious classes, libraries and drivers) .. but regard these other components (like Clock) you can, eventually install them everywhere you like most … so how can be possible for Updater to check exactly what component is strictly related to the Enancher Package or not ?
That's why Updater check for the name of the program i think … now as yours is merely a demo apps, maybe is your component that might be renamed in order to avoid eventual conflicts .. atleast this is what i understand from the situation ..
