"A newer version of Unity Web Player is required, but the auto-update failed.
Invalid auto-update file (no revision info found). Please Install Manually."
I installed manually, I uninstalled, rebooted then reinstalled, and still get the same message in IE9. It used to work, I think prior to installing 3.4.1.
I'd really appreciate some help withthis one.
Edit: Seems to work with new code built in 3.4.1, but anything of mine built in 3.3 doesn't work.
We're getting this again having updated to Unity 3.5.2, anyone know if UT needs to fix something on their end?

The webplayer has reached out to Unity servers to see if there is a newer plugin available. The file that was fetched was unexpectedly empty, so the webplayer doesn't know if it is the latest or not. The suggestion to install manually is really just the plugin making a suggestion when it does not know what else might work. I wonder if the update file that was fetched was corrupted in some way. Clearing your browser cache and restarting might help.
I tried that, thanks, but no cigar. Interestingly, it worked in Chrome without it even downloading a new player, so this must be IE9 specific.
