Ok, just a heads up for anyone still having mass update issues.
Well Globacides Mass Updater is one hell of a piece of kit, when it worked, developers have seemingly vanished and no responses to ANY messages for over a year, lots of people very p****d and rightly so.
In light of this i personally called in the big guns and asked one of the best developers my company has ever employed (i have used many and have many i use), but this guy is....well....frankly my main #1 go to guy and as always, he smashed it. Fixed known issues and applied his usual amazing skills to get VM Mass Updater working for J2.5 and VM3 only, but, that's not an issue, yes i know J3 is preferred, no support for J2.5 but i run a ton of sites on J2.5 still and for the trade off this solution has been an invaluable solution to maintaining existing eCommerce and building new ones.
If anyone is interested just drop me a line.
It's working and fully functional and an amazing product, just a shame the developers fell off the face of the earth, and also terrible that people are still buying it and it fails INSTANTLY without support!
I HAVE A WORKING VERSION.
