An update to the above issue.

Internet workflow for 'check for updates' is working with XS but not in VS. Below is the screencast :

It's important here to provide some feedback when there's no connection. Nothing happening is not a good UX.
Comment 3 Dominique Louis 2013-06-21 13:31:36 UTC
Agreed, this should be better. No internet connection was a scenario I had not checked. Is this a blocker for 1.2?
Comment 4 PJ 2013-06-21 13:44:54 UTC
Given that we are still without windows builds of 4.6.9, I'd say we can try to get this in. Presumably we could trivially test this change and release, likely before 4.6.9 is fully sorted.

So yeah, non-blocking but perhaps we can try to get it in?

Have to comment to set it back to CONFIRMED.
Comment 6 Dominique Louis 2013-06-24 17:10:41 UTC
Latest MTVS on master and 1.2-series branch should have this fixed.
Comment 7 Saurabh 2013-06-25 13:00:43 UTC
We have checked this issue with latest builds:

MTVS 1.2.133
VS 2010/12

Now, user gets relevant message if no internet in the machine.

Hence, verifying this issue.
