Having trouble finding the MobileMe 1.1 Update

MobileMe logoOne of my Macs had a hard time locating the MobileMe 1.1 Update. I had repeatedly been to Software Update, with no avail. My iMac only used my .Mac / MobileMe account for the iDisk and Back to My Mac features. On a whim I decided to open the .Mac preference pane and within a few moments a MobileMe update appeared and linked me to Software Update. Now Software Update is showing the package. I’m not 100% certain of the reason and I’m not in a position to replicate it. But, if you are having trouble getting Software Update to find the MobileMe Update 1.1  then try clicking around in the .Mac preferences for a minute.

Having trouble, or have something to add? Please leave a comment!

  1. Mike,

    I was able to replicate what you described.

    My home machine hadn’t updated yet so I tried “software updates” nothing…

    I recalled seeing the title of this post come over your twitter stream so I decided to see what you had written. Turns out you hit the nail on the head.

    I opened the .Mac preference pane and within a few seconds I was prompted to download the MobileMe update.

    I can talk myself into how this makes some sense for Apple. However, I have a hard time making sense of it from a paying service subscriber point-of-view.
