Update checker

Orao

Hello,

I am a newbie and am looking for a script that would check for updates like follows:

1. I am having a folder with installation files (Firefox4.exe, 7Zip920.exe, ccsetup300.exe..., etc.), that i use for unattended installs:

2. The script shoul check on the net if there are any newer versions of the instalation files

3. If YES, then it should download the new files to the folder and replace them with the old ones.

Please help me with a simple solution to that,

Or can i find somewhere a simple script for that?

Thank you

Hi Orao, welcome to the wonderful world of autoit, i made a script similar to the one you seek recently; allow me to point you in the right direction. You can try playing around with some of the internet functions like inetget, to check for software versions and releases.

However if you aren't prepared to delve into autoit head on(yet) or you want something immediately on a platter perhaps you should consider a ready made alternative eg1,eg2

Thanks a lot for the links and suggestions.

I will give it a try.

Can you also show me your script, how you did it?

Maybe this can help me.

Thank you
