The site 'nirsoft.net' has a lot of small utilities that are updated on a somewhat regular basis. I would like some kind of program that will check the versions that are on the website against what I already have to see if the website ones are newer. If so, it will download them.

Can this be done reasonably in AutoHotKey?

Thanks in advance for the help.

Thank you for that! Unfortunately, it is not something that I could use for work purposes. It is free for personal use, but not in a business setting :(

What about using NirSoft's own NirLauncher?  http://launcher.nirsoft.net

The WSCC about page says:

Free for personal and commercial use.

The Software is being licensed to you free of charge for private and commercial use. It may be freely used, copied and distributed as long as it is not sold, and all original files are included, including this license.

But the $19.95 listed on the website should not break the bank.

WSCC is invaluable. Without it Nirsoft and Sysinternals are impossible to manage.

Speaking of which, have you been able to get the update buttons to update?  The only reliable way I have found is to delete the folder(such as NirSoft tools) then hit install.  It installs the newest.  But if I just hit update button often is says there aren't any when I am staring at new NirSoft versions on Snapfiles and/or Softpedia.

@lugosi84: I'd rather not re-invent the wheel but, if you still feel you cannot use WSCC at work, I'll see what I can come up with for you.

Only Version 2 is free for personal and commercial use - that being said, maybe version 2 is all that is required.

The license included in the download for Version 3 says it is not free for commercial use:
