Wrong version reported

  • Michael Grossbach

    Great idea to have apt-get-like behaviour on Windows! I tried using the cli of Appupdater (with the help of PsTools) to keep a couple of networked PCs up-to-date but ran into some inconsistencies:
    1) On "appupdater -l" Appupdater reports version 2.0.012 instead of the installed for Thunderbird.
    2) Flash Player and Plash ActiveX are both shown as "Flash" in the list following a "Appupdater -l"

    Thanks for this great piece of software!

      1. I'm not seeing that here.  You should go into your installed.txt and see what is reported for Thunderbird (vista: c:\programdata\appupdater, xp: c:\documents and settings\all users\app data\appupdater).

      2. Yes I combined those both into a flash "package."  This makes more sense for people that are looking to install flash for the first time with Appupdater.

      Hi there,

      my problems seem to have been caused by concurrently using a network-based install of Appupdater on several computers at a time. Exclusive reading and writing rights for installed.txt in a future version would be a nice topping.

      Thanks again,

        You can set the path of your installed.txt to a local file in the config file, I think that should solve your problem nicely.  You are looking for INSTALLED_TXT.
