New Gui Version script

Recommended Posts


I remember seeing a UDF for a script that I THINK Valuater did that you can put in your script to tell the user if there is a new version or not. I don't want to make one from scratch so does anyone know where that is? I can't find it anymore.

EndFuncAutoIt is the shiznit. I love it.

I haven't seen any UDF, but it only takes a couple lines of code.

There may be better methods, but I just park the current version in a file on one of the servers, and compare that to a hard-coded version number in the running script. If there's a mismatch, I kill the users process, launch the update program, it puts up a pretty little "updating..." window while it replaces the executable on the users drive, and then relaunches the updated script when it's done.

$VersionFile = "\\Server3\IT-Files\superduper.ver"
    $UpdatePgm = "\\Server3\IT-Files\autoupdate.exe"

; set version in running script
    $Appname = "My super duper script      2.37"
; read latest version number from file on network
    $file = FileOpen($VersionFile, 0)
    $FileVersion = FileReadLine($file)
; launch update program and terminate process
    If StringRight($AppName, 4) < $FileVersion Then
