I am using LDView 4.3 and 4.2 on two different Win7 x64 machines on different networks and I get the same behavior.  Whenever I try to update the library it gets to "Parsing Updates List" and freezes.  Once I hit the X on the update dialog it throws the "close program" dialog.  Anyone else seeing this or have any solutions?


I think LDraw.org force-enabled https for the update CGI, and LDView does not support that. LDView is (obviously) not supposed to crash, but I also don't think LDView will ever support https on that. I'm pretty sure this happened in the past, and Orion fixed it.

When I try the same thing with LDView 4.4 Beta 1, it says, "Error downloading update list." I believe that the reason it doesn't crash in 4.4 Beta 1 is because the last time this happened, I implemented a fix, but that fix has not made it into an official release yet.
