I prefer the zip no install version, for the sake of consistency

@Marco

Is there any manual work on your side required?

I'm working on a downloader atm that does everything on it's own
- No visible window, only a tray icon (with notifications if enabled), so that it is easy to quit
- Downloading official and beta (if enabled) releases
- Extracting, getting the UTC compiled time of XYplorer.exe
- Calculating the hashes (.exe + .zip) and finally renaming and moving the downloaded .zip
into the final destination (root archive path + creating necessary destination folders for major/minor releases)
- The timer to check is ofc configurable (value = seconds)

The .ini looks like this:

Code: Select all

IntervalCheck=300
IncludeBetaVersions=1
ArchivePath=T:\backup\all\XYplorer Archive
ShowTrayNotifications=1
OfficialVersionURL=https://www.xyplorer.com/version.php
BetaVersionURL=https://www.xyplorer.com/version_beta.php
In other words: Run and forget and if more users use it, we shouldn't loose any release anymore...

All things are working so far, just working on the logging and a bit of polishing...

Hey there!

Currently, there's almost no manual work on my side, because:
-I used Enternal's utility (see first post) to monitor and download new betas to an "Incoming" folder, which I purge when needed
-when I run my updater script, I have an "on restart" script that renames the zip according to the rule and moves it to an "Archive" folder

My manual intervention comes when I upload the builds to GDrive, because I don't use their app to sync a local folder (personal choice) to the cloud but I do everything via browser, and so creating the folder structure too.
I keep the computer on all (European) day long, so the times I missed a release was because I lost the Internet connection at home and don't even realize it when, at work, I don't have the time to log in remotely via TeamViewer.
It would certainly be cool if more users use it because redundancy never hurts :)

Thanks Marco.

I will publish it when it's done. YAUM itself isn't necessary anymore since XY knows how to update
itself :mrgreen:

Ok, posted: viewtopic.php?f=7&t=18316

If you want to support Marco, use it and if he ever requires a version, XY_Update downloader
should have caught it. The .zip name is already in the correct format (containing dates, checksums, etc.)...

Just a little remainder: the Archive contains, as of now, 2977 builds, at about one month before its sixth birthday and with the upcoming XYplorer 20 behind the corner.
A huge thank you to those who made this possible!
