I just got a new computer and installed NWN but when i downloaded the HGE Updater and i go into the nwn file and double click on it it only pops up for a split second then goes away....anyone know why?
So you installed NWN+sou+hotu, updated NWN, then ran the HGE updater? I think you might need to download and install CEP before running the HGE updater for the first time, though when you have CEP installed HGE updater will offer to update CEP whenever it gets improved.
There's a good one... how do you tell if the CEP has been updated without a revision change... because I had assumed I was up to date, but when runnning HGE update and selecting yes for CEP it just goes off updating like mad... updating what ? is it downloading EVERYTHING all over again?? I could probably download the entire .zip faster...

The HGE updater won't download the whole CEP again, it will only download updated versions of files and new files. That's been my experience anyway, i always say yes to downloading CEP, and it's never taken anywhere near as long as when i've downloaded CEP manually.
HGEUpdater does a compare of the file on your system versus the latest one. If their sizes (and possibly hash) do not match, it gets downloaded, otherwise not. So HGEUpdater is much quicker and efficient than full DL every time.
