Wow.  Very different interface now.  Okay, maybe not VERY different, but I was looking around for the buttons at the bottom and they aren't there anymore.  When I stopped ignoring the pictures at the top (which is a nice addition by the way), I noticed that they were more than eye candy tongue.  Very nice addition.  Thmbsup

You can still get the old buttons if you want (view -> advanced controls).
The same commands can also now be accessed via the File menu.

Heeeyyy mouser.  Was thinking about DCU today and had an idea, figured I would bounce it off you.  You know how you have pre-release versions available to members of the site but not to the regular visitor?  How you also have alphas (as with FARR v2) that we have to check a forum to have available?  How about if we can put in our forum username and password in DCU and it will know about versions available to us that isn't available to the general public?  You can have a beta-tester list of people you want to get very early versions of a program and DCU will notify us about it and give us the opportunity to download it and try it out.  It should also have a way to revert it, maybe it will "archive" our existing version  on the system so it can revert it that way.

Just a dumb but cool idea I had.

hey mouser. i really like the new interface, but to remind you of a request i did some time ago:
did you ever use XP prof. or 2000? when your right-click on an executable, there is an option called "run as..."

clicking on this option opens up a dialog where i can choose to run the program under an administrator-account.
i would really like an option in dcupdater to open this dialog for the updaters, because i run an underprivileged account and i have to run the installers with an other account to avoid getting messages like "you must be logged in as administrator..."

picture of the dialog (in german language): http://www.screencast.com/t/sa3lzwk1

another idea, mouser.. what about a "what's new" list when DCU finds a new update? especially one that is very close to the previous one, will help lessen the burden for dial-uppers.. Wink

johi's reminder prompted me to remind you about proxy server settings as well.  At work, we use .pac files for configuring our proxies, and I haven't found a workaround for that yet.  Therefore, unless I bring in the updates on a USB stick, I can't get them at work, and that makes DCU a little pointless there (e.g. where that configuration file points to).  Could you set it to get the proxy settings from the default browser?  That seems like the easy way to do it, though I don't know if that is easy to code.

Mouser,
Would it be feasible to add another tab/link/some control that includes the 'what's new' information for a given update. I use some apps on my machine that provide such functionality. First thing any user wants to know is what this update is bringing to the app being updated. I think all will welcome such feature.

Hey Mouser!  I disabled a few programs in DCU that I never would use (flipbook printer, international image maker, etc) and while I have no need of this feature, just thought i should mention it:  Would it make sense to add a tab that shows disabled programs?  That way you can see what you have disabled in case you change your mind about one.  It would work the same as the available to be installed tab, sort of keeping them separated logically.  I dunno, maybe it doesn't make sense.

The reason I actually started this post was to ask, is there still any chance of categorization going in?  I can see a large number of items being configured in this program and one huge long list would be very unwieldy.  My idea is a tree view when user insertable folders, then they can drag the items to the folder and drop it to put it in there.  Plus, plugins would automatically be a subtree of the program they plug into.  Like all the FARR plugins.  By default items would just insert at the bottom of the list, under user specified categories.

I would like to see an option to close DCU after checking for updates. I.E. when DCU is done checking, if it doesn't find any updates it'll just exit all together. I couldn't find such behaviour currently (sorry if I missed it in that case...).

My reason for this, is so I can use nncron Lite to launch DCU only on certain days or every 2nd day or whatever, and then exit when done.

user the commandline option "-nothingexit"  - tells dcu to exit if nothing new found.

steeladept,

Not knowing of your post, I duplicated it in this thread Proxy, and Martin Aignesberger recommended wininet technology.

To all users,

Please post each new BUG REPORT in it's own thread. Do not use this thread for bug reports. You can add them to the DC Updater forum. After one is posted, we will add it to the DCUpdater - Official Bug Tracking Thread. This will help eliminate the clutter that was the old bug tracking thread.

Thanks for your help!

Josh

You can add them to the The Form Letter Machine forum.

Typo alert? Shouldn't that be DCUpdater forum?

The latest version reports itself as 1.25.02, thus requiring update over and over. Otherwise no problems on  WinXP and Vista.
