There was one other thing I sent in my original email:
I received several errors when I tried to unzip the new version of CircleFlip from Themeforest.
The errors read like this:
An unexpected error is keeping you from copying the file … Error 0x80010135: Path too long
It came up several times when I tried to upzip the folder, and often had to do with images, such as column-background-1
In the end, I had to copy the contents of the zipped folder to my desktop by dragging them from the folder in order to install the new version.
You might want to see if the folder unzips OK for you when you download it from ThemeForest.
I believe this happened on the last update, too.
