Welp..... I think it is just me or something but I am trying to make a simple script to see if there is an updated version of the antivirus installer before continuing with the install. Here is the code I used to test the results for the FileGetVersion

$file3 = FileGetSize("http://consumerdownloads.ca.com/consumer/apps/iss3_en.exe")
MsgBox(0, "test", $file3)

Here is the actual function I am using

Func CAISS2007_Installer_Full_Version()
    $file1 = FileGetVersion(".\iss3_en.exe")
    $file3 = FileGetVersion("http://consumerdownloads.ca.com/consumer/apps/iss3_en.exe")
        Case $file1 = $file3
        Case $file3 = ""
        Case $file1 <> $file3 And $file3 <> ""
            $NewVersionFull = MsgBox(3, "Udated Installation File", "There is a newer installation file out would you like to download it? If you would like to continue without updating press 'NO'.")

It is not exactly a finished function but I do not like to continue things unless it works up to the point I am at.

Anywho the problem is that no matter what the my $file3 result always comes back ''

Anyone have a way to fix this or a workaround?

You are trying to get size of file from internet?! using FileGetSize?! :shocked:

First you must download it, and then check it, if you want to check the size, then try InetGetSize()... but to check the version on http, i don't think that is possible.

you could use something like this

InetGet("http://consumerdownloads.ca.com/consumer/apps/",@TempDir & "\tmp.txt",1)
$line = StringRegExp(FileRead(@TempDir & "\tmp.txt"),"(?m)iss3_en.exe(.*)M(?m)",2)
$line = StringRegExp($line[0],"\d\d.*(?m)",2)
$line = StringSplit(StringStripWS($line[0],7)," ")
MsgBox(0,"test",$line[1] & " " & $line[2] & " " & $line[3])
FileDelete(@TempDir & "\tmp.txt")
