It seems like its not the actual file getting dowloaded..

I wanted to give the new download a new name then delete the current script.. but i guess I can't do that while downloading.

I thought about just adding the version of the program at the end of the name, but that doesnt look good, and then there would still be 2 .exe's

any ideas?

From research i found this:

?do=embed' frameborder='0' data-embedContent>

I will look it through

Also when its updated is it possible to just relaunch or something ? Instead of closeing

It is possible to rename and delete the current running script?

im thinking about doing this:

rename to  "MyProgramOld.exe" -> download "MyProgram.exe" -> close "MyProgramOld.exe" and launch "MyProgram.exe" (basicly an instant relaunch) -> delete "MyProgramOld.exe"  thats what i need.

or if I could make it overwrite 100% so if i have deleted lines that they will also get deleted.

I think the reason it doesnt do this is because the program is running whilst trying to update itself, can I start the update in between the relaunch?

Basicly just build a program dedicated to updates and which makes sure that the main program is closed for now :)

That's slightly trickier..

func ReLaunchUpdatedApp()
    $cmd = 'ping 192.0.0.0 -n 1 -w 2000 > nul' & @CRLF
    $cmd &= 'cd ' & @ScriptDir & @CRLF
    $cmd &= 'del my-app.exe' & @CRLF
    $cmd &= 'ren my-app-new.exe my-app.exe' & @CRLF
    $cmd &= 'start /d "' & @ScriptDir & '" my-app.exe' & @CRLF
    FileWrite(@TempDir & "\relaunch.cmd", $cmd)
    Run(@TempDir & "\relaunch.cmd", @ScriptDir, @SW_HIDE)
    exit
    ; don't forget to clean up the temp file at the start of your script!
endfunc

btw, the ping command is simply a two second pause, in case your app takes a moment to shut down.

Or that, I guess!
