What version are you running? I use mutex's in the code such that the GUI can be open and you can still import. You just can't have 2 GUIs open or do 2 imports at the same time. I'll have to try and recreate this on a VM. This is definitely not intended behavior.

Thanks for letting us know! :thumbup:

Ver 1.1.15
I was able to reproduce by creating a batch file that includes the update commands from the scheduled task. Open the GUI. Open a DOS prompt and run the batch file.
I get something like 'there is already an instance running' error. The file is not updated and then it imports the old file.
By the way AWESOME job on this

Ah, I thought we were talking about the client GUI. Due to there only being allowed a single token by the SD API, I think there is no easy way around completing an update while the configuration GUI is open. An open configuration GUI will cause any update task to abort. I'll take a deeper look, but I believe this was the best I could do.
