Auto Updater

5 posts in this topic

Here is the auto updater I created. This program reads a version.ini file and compares it to a current.ini file and if the new version# is greater, it downloads the update and closes the existing program and launches the new version. This works good for a few minutes then stops doing what it is designed to? It is not crashing, just not checking for the version.ini any longer. The webserver does not register any hits after a certain amount of time. It has no gui, just a tray icon, clicking the icon closes the app, you can also do a CTRL-ALT-X.

Could someone please look this over and point out anything that could be done better, or why it may be stop responding?

Thanks.

1) It Burns CPU

2) Don't Use The InetGet() Use a _IE* function to read the page.. (much faster),

3)_VersionCompare() To compare the files...

4) If using version compare...dont use a .ini..use a fileread...and etc...

Just some things I saw..

When you say burn CPU do you mean cause its working all the time? Im not objectionable to a timer, however I do not really like the sleep function because it prevents the application from responding to a close request.

i'm new to autoit, could you show me how those items you suggested work?

Thanks.

Put a Sleep(50) in there, it will not seem to slow it down, but it stops the burn of CPU.

_VersionCompare() It's in the Misc.au3 file.

_InetGetSource() might be what you need or use a _IE* function to read the txt without downloading it.

And use FileWrite, FileRead, FileReadLine() Etc. to see the actual version without using a .ini

There is 2.25 seconds of sleep time durring the main function of looking at the version info? Does it need more?

could you do something like..

for x$ 1 to 120
sleep(1000)
** do soemthing here to still listen for keyboard commands.
next

that way you sleep for 1 second at a time for 120 seconds while still responding to mouse clicks and such?

also checked the logs, it seems to work for around 30 - 35 minutes before stopping? any clue?
