Rich what do logs and update level have to say about the CF10 patch level?
CF10admin > Debugging & Logging > Log Files > update.log
CF10admin > Server Update > Updates > Installed Updates
Are you running on Windows? I have had issues like yours in the past. If I at least temporarily add the user account that the ColdFusion service runs under to the local Administrators group, the updates run completely. Otherwise, I see the same thing you are seeing.
Thanks for your reply.
No, I'm running on Mac OSX (10.8.2)
It now says I'm up to date; patch level 05. But that's not what it said when I did my updates! It kept saying that I had to apply the patch and the little orange sunburst in the upper right corner wouldn't go away, nor would the message that I was only on patch level 02.... Weird. I guess this one is closed for now....
thanks for your help.
Browser caching, perhaps? Oh well. Good to see solved,
