weird

It keeps suggesting PokerTH, Eraser and PDFTK but I have the latest versions.

I think thats because the ini is wrong as PDFTKs version number is 3.2.0.0, Erasers is 5.82.0.2 and PokerTHs is 0.6.1.1.

The Updater says Eraser 5.86.1.1, POkerTH 0.6.1.2 and PDFTK 0.6.1.0. Peazip isnt updated either. But I guess all those errors will vanish into thin air when Ryans version gets released Smile

Delphi one

I found my Delphi code to do it at https://portableapps.com/node/9388

We need to make a decision on whether we should use NSIS, Delphi or C++ to do this. IMHO, NSIS isn't powerful enough to do it (it's possible, but it's like turning a plane into a bicycle).

NSIS

I like NSIS, and marko has seem to done a good job with it.

it's possible, but it's like turning a plane into a bicycle

I love NSIS, it does great things, and has great possibilities considering it's in installer system. It's hard, but I think it's worth it.

Add this to beta

I think you should request this app to be added to the development test releases section. https://portableapps.com/development/test

Add a comment to request it's addition.

Marko has write access, so he can add it himself Blum

... and will do it with the next version :-)

This version will fix the following issues:
* License- Welcomepage (show only once)
* updater.ini format closer to app.ini
* better function for component page preparation
* new icons (thanks to ptmb)
* support for proxy authentification
* self update support for the updater

Stay tuned Smile
Give me some time to make the last changes /tests ...

I just used it to compress a app that I'm working on together with the application dev itself. Initial testing revealed the application still being functional.

Cheers for John!

[Edit] whoops, was meant for the compression tool. How stopid of me, sorry Smile

Old versions

First off, I think this is a great way to get my portable apps updated. Great concept! My current method of merely keeping an RSS feed on the latest "news" from PortableApps is a bit more time consuming.

However, I noticed that the installation paf's that were being downloaded were older versions than the current ones. Is there something I'm missing?

Thanks in advance

I think

thats because Marko didnt update the ini on the server where the Updater checks for new versions.

Yes, keep the update.ini up to date :-)

... because at the moment I work on BETA1, thats why the updater.ini is not actual.
With the new version the ini will change (closer to app.ini...).

At the moment I set Simeon as author Wink

If I get the last issue fixed (show some information while the ini is loaded) the new version will available tomorrow.

... but I'll update the current ini soon.
