IDEA: Symantec anti-virus auto-updater

<< < (4/8) > >>

Ok, as of 1.04 that exception should be fixed, and the manual update button has been added.

EDIT: 1.05 is out, some minor fixes and the ability to abort an update, GUI changes...

EDIT: 1.06 is out, rewrote most of the code, focusing on the threading...


Hey, for 1.09, is there a way to make it so that you can enter the URL of the page to be checked for the update that way it isnt hard coded into the app. Perhaps this can be stored in a registry key, and loaded each time the program starts. That way, if symantec were to change their page, you wouldnt have to update the program.

Also, the exception is thrown when you click an empty spot in the log window. Also, ntvdm.exe isnt being killed in task manager. I still show it running.

 One thing I did notice is that when you change the amount of time between updates, its not remembered when you restart the app and its also not updated on the timer. Is there a way to do this via a registry key? You could store whether or not silent updates are enabled, auto update is enabled, the update interval and the default log file to use all in registry. Would this be feasible? One final thing, when you press update to do a manual update, it doesnt reset the timer (at least in the titlebar of the app). Thanks again!

:) A late entry!

DownloadAndRun - Download a file from the internet, and run it or open it in a program.

- Open the ini file to change the file to download, to show traytip and what action to take.
- Wildcard * can be used in the filename=
- To just save the download file, use action=
- To run the downloaded file, use action=Run
- To open the downloaded file in, say Notepad, use action=Run Notepad.exe

You'll find the downloads and more info at 1 Hour Software by Skrommel.

This one is a bit rough, like missing a gui for the settings, but I plan to expand it to extract any info from a web page, not just links, and format the output, so just try it out. Also I'd like to add multiple sources, scheduling and multple threads.

Also, RegEx is possible, but I find it somewhat cryptic, maybe wildcards is good enough?
