My use is with a XYplorer script I wrote which...
1. Does the checking of the which version you have and the online version.
2. Asks if you want to update which it then downloads or uses an already downloaded update file if it is found in the specified spot with the XYplorer script.
3. Launches this program with the command line parameters of the json data file I created for the updater settings for XYplorer along with the source file(the updated zip file) (as specified in the usage_info.txt file).
4. Then my program basically shows the dialog like in the example and you may then hit update. It then proceeds create a backup if you set that up in the json data file for the program you are trying to update.
5. After that it will then extract the zip file over the application data files.
6. It will when it gets to the application executable to extract it will attempt to close the correct executable (Should be able to find the one that is launched from the path setup in the json update settings file.), so that it can extract the application executable over the current one.
7. Once finished it will attempt to launch the application again.
I don't know if many people will find it useful or not...but I decided to put it out there. Like I said though I do use it myself for updating my XYplorer portable copy/copies as the built in one I believe is just for installed copies and I wanted a faster way to update my portable copy/copies.
As for the scanners that have false positives...I wish those programs that mark it as false positives would get marked as a false positive for once and let them see how they like it when their app is marked that way. As I don't knowingly put that crap inside my programs and my Trend Micro shows clean.
This looks interesting. But to be honest, I'm not really sure exactly what it is or how to use it. Is it an app to be used like DCUpdater used to be?
FYI VirusTotal shows 1/63 scanners marking the file as unsafe, and Jotti has 0/15 scanners marking the file as unsafe.
To others: Given that hamradio is a longtime, trusted member of this site, I feel it is safe to say that the 1 hit out of 78 scanners is very likely a false positive.
