1.28.02?
« Reply #102 on: October 18, 2010, 01:24:05 PM »
A short while back, I got an update notice for dcupdater - I downloaded and installed USING dcupdater - I still get the message, saying I need to upgrade from 1.26.01 to 1.28.01 - but when I do Help - About, it says I am running 1.28.02! I just did a new download and install - same version situation.

The dcupdatersetup.exe that I downloaded is 2,121,728 bytes. dcupdater.exe is 3,004,416, and does show an internal version # of 1.28.2.0, modified on 10/10/10 at 7:15PM.

Did I get a bad version somehow?

Thanks
Dan

you dont have a bad version, just me being a bit sloppy with version numbers.  however i think if you re-install the new update it should say you have version 1.28.01 and stop offering an update (even though you really have 1.28.02).  it shouldnt say you have 1.26.01 if you get new version.

Still no luck. I tried a fresh download and install. Same thing. So I un-installed dcupdater, renamed:
C:\Users\Dan\AppData\Roaming\DonationCoder\DcUpdater
to
C:\Users\Dan\AppData\Roaming\DonationCoder\DcUpdater-old
and
C:\Program Files\DcUpdater
to
C:\Program Files\DcUpdater-old
then did another fresh download (to a different name) and install - STILL got the same thing! It says installed version 1.26.01, version on the web 1.28.01. Help - About says I am running 1.28.02. As does looking at the Program Properties - Details.

There is a directory
C:\Users\Dan\AppData\Roaming\DonationCoder\Keys
which I did not rename ...

Any directories or registry keys I should clean up?

Sorry about this, and thanks for your help.
Dan

Version 1.30.01 - April 4th, 2012
  • [BugFix] Fixed bug where virtualstore location was being written to, causing dcupdater to report old versions of installed programs sometimes; see http://www.donationc...x.php?topic=30528.0; thanks to dc member sba
  • [Feature] Added the following optional parameters to versioninfo.xml files:Override_VersionFileRemote,Override_WebPage,Override_UpdateFile.  Using these you can effectively have the versioninfo.xml file overide some values of the local .dcupdate file or even redirect to an alternative versioninfo file.
  • [Feature] Executable and setup now digitally signed and not zip-compatible

Thanks for the update, mouser. What do you mean with not zip-compatible?

In the past I created all my setup files as zip-compatible self-extracting packages.  This had the advantage of making it possible for someone to download the setup file and instead of running it, simply unpacking it for portable use.

However, this had a few drawbacks including not being able to sign the setup program and possibly causing some downloads to fail midway.

So with all my new releases I am providing them as 2 separate downloads -- a main setup program which is no longer "zip-compatible" but is digitally signed for security, and a second Portable.zip version which is a normal standard zip file that can be unpacked for portable use.

wut?!

No posts in this forum since July 2013. I thought I'd change that by saying I just tried out DCUpdater by using it to install some new software and it appears to work flawlessly. Nothing has updated yet, though. We shall see.

It even detected my FARR plugins.   :)

I still use it and like it a lot. Have had some minor problems: cant remember exactly now, but I think if you have installed and portable flavours of same software present, it can get confused with the install path and installs both to same path. For some reason it always starts up with Windows (7) for me - looking for updates for CHS (but tbh I haven't checked if that's something in the CHS settings).
There may be other bugs - but not that I've come across :up:

Thanks for the info, tomos!

A cool feature would be a toggle in the options to treat beta releases as regular updates.  ;)

Would make it a little easier for those who want to help test.

I just got the FARR update. This app definitely works.   ;D

EDIT: Whoops, I meant for this to be an edit to the above post. My bad.  :-[
