Firewall & McAffee

3 posts in this topic

I've written an updater program, it downloads a program if an update is available, exits, and restarts.

Is there a way I prevent McAffee Firewall from popping up saying this file has changed???

Thanks for any help guys


Who needs puzzles when we have AutoIt!!

What file is it that you are updating? I would think this would be a setting within McAffee to stop this message.

If its just a warning and you just click 'OK' you could script out autoit to hit ok when the window pops up.

Actually, that was going to be my second question, my prog is part of our companys software installation files, but i've built in an autoupdate feature which works great, altho as i dont know the installers firewall manufacturer I need to find a way to remove the firewallpopup if the file alreadys exists and requires updating. I can get around it by setting the newfile date to oldfile date then mcaffee doesnt realised its changed, tho i'm sure theres another way.
