Download file with name changing

4 posts in this topic

Hi Guys, 

Hope you're doing fine today.

Well, I'm trying to achieve something I want to integrate to a tool I already created.

At work, we deploy computers massively and we use the tool to perform automatic operations. Then, we have to update the BIOS to the latest version. To avoid a heavy tool, I'd like to automatically download the latest BIOS on the Dell Website but the thing is that the name of the fail change when a new version is published. Of course, I cannot know what version will be deployed by Dell but I have this when connecting to the website:

2016-02-11_11-27-30.png.dca2d233e087b51e

Thus, I don't know if the FOLDERXXXXX of the download URL will change if a new version ins deployed. 

Here's one of the pages of a model we also use: http://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/19/product-support/product/latitude-e5450-laptop/drivers/advanced

Well, i'm kind of stuck here and maybe someone could point something out :)

Thanks in advance ;)

Hi. You can do this.

 

#include <String.au3>
#include <Array.au3>

Local $sRead = InetRead('http://downloads.dell.com/published/pages/optiplex-7010.html', 1)
ConsoleWrite(BinaryToString($sRead) & @CRLF)
Local $aData = _StringBetween(BinaryToString($sRead), 'Type: BIOS', 'Category:')



Local $aLinks = _StringBetween($aData[0], '<A HREF="/', '"><IMG')

For $i = 0 To UBound($aLinks) - 1
    $aLinks[$i] = 'http://downloads.dell.com' & $aLinks[$i]
Next

;~ _ArrayDisplay($aLinks)

MsgBox(0, "Lastest Version BIOS", $aLinks[0])

Saludos

Hi Danyfirex, 

That is so cool. I did not know about this page and what you proposed is working like a charm.

I'm gonna play with it and propose something very useful for us!

Thanks again!

      Here a small tool I wrote to update my Sysinternal tools collection without the need to download always the whole package or visiting the site to check for updates. I know that there are several tools available (also some tools written in AutoIt) but here another one for the collection. It was good exercise for me to code it.
       
       
        
       
       
      Some files from cannot be downloaded although they are visible on the web site!
       
      Here the download link of the source code only: AutoIt Sysinternal Tools Synchronizer v0.99.1 build 2017-10-23 beta.7z  (1353 downloads previously)
      -=> Requires AutoIt version 3.3.13.20 or higher / tested on Win8.1 real machine and some VMs: Win7 / Vista / Win10
       
      Compiled exe only: @MediaFire
       
      Just select the Sysinternal Tools folder or create one and press the synchronize button to download the selected items. Click on AutoIt label (near to left upper corner) to open menu.
       
      Special thanks to LarsJ, Melba23 and mesale0077 for their help. 
       
      I've still some ideas to implement which are more gimmick related, so it is not finished yet...
      If you want to add your language please check out #Region Language. Thanks. 
       
      Please report any bug or if you have any suggestions.
       
      The language of the tool tip from each of the executable in the left list view were automatically created using Google translator and weren't checked for correctness.

      Hi,
      I'm looking to create a script which will download all *.txt files from a remote FTP server.
      Once downloaded, delete all *.txt files.
       
      Can this be achieved using AutoIt ?

      Connect Android phone > enable USB file transfer > go to My Computer, there's an icon, but no drive letter - this is normal.
      Open phone icon > go to Internal Storage > go to DCIM > copy all files and folders to computer.
      Now, I want a quick AutoIt script / windows batch to do this automatically.
      Get USB path with this - it works OK:

      I am trying to read all the files in a folder, then whatever file is newest, keep only that one and delete the rest.
      Example files:  (these all have version numbers embedded in them, I dont want to rely on the file name)

      Faint-v2.0.exe
      Faint-v3.0.exe
      Faint-v4.0.exe

      Hi I need your help
      I need download backup from 200 remote pc. I calculate that I can download 20 backups in one time. I need to create loop, take localizations from txt file and start 20 downloads in one time (i want use ShellExecute and robocopy), after finish one from running 20 take another localizations from txt file until localizations finish. And I need trigger if is 7:00 pause script. I hope you know what I mean
      Many thanks for help, sorry for my english.
