Default [CLOSED]QIP Update System

Hello buddies... This is for those who enjoy Infium (well, I don't), and don't like the scouting for next 9000 update...

QIP Update System
QIPUpdater 1.1 Beta + QIPUpdateServer 1.1 Beta

1)

2)

3)

4)

5)


What?
A client program (QIP Updater (download)) is started with Infium (using a fake plugin, Updater.dll). This proggy checks for updates, and is able to download them. It has some 'advanced features': backups of replaced files, notification, blah blah.

Server. What server?
It's update.qip.sk, but you can make your own server, if you want, haha. So I release the php code (download) needed to build own server too.

Who's doing this?
All files are stored on my server, you must 1) trust me, and 2) wait until I update files on server when new QIP is released... I implemented a good decentralisation system, so files and file info can be on a foreign server... An example is Czech.dll which is totally outside of my server and not operated by me... I wanted all core components working this way... At least infium.exe and protocols should be on qip.ru server, but... It's not me who can make this. :)

Can I add my files?
You can add your own files (for example translation) to our system... This suplies the empError's lngUpe too... You just have to give me at least url where the file is stored and url where is iso date of latest version of the file (you can also give me url where the comment is stored - you can write there that you're the author or the last changes or whatever).

How to make this work?
Unpack the QIP Updater into the Infium directory (so you will get Plugins\Updater directory). Open file Plugins\Updater\Updater.ini and set language to 'en' and other options, if you understand it. A settings panel is planned but I hadn't enough time. (Re)start Infium. A new icon will appear in the systray - next to the Infium icon. It's the updater... A balloon popup will appear when a update for QIP was found. You can also run an instant check if you turned off the autocheck...

Have fun, don't forget to write me a line. If you, QIP guys, enjoy my system, I would be happy if you will co-operate somehow. I don't use QIP and I don't have too much time for this. It's not a hard thing to upload core Infium components on qip.ru, Inf...

Great program, works fine


But: Sometimes window isn't possible to minimize! I hit minimize button in your updater window, but nothing happens... I must use close button to remove window from screen

andreasm82, do you know the exact situation? Is it before or after update process? I guess it's just in the time when the updater is communicating with the update server... I will look @ it later, thanks.

andreasm82, I guess you're using German.dll... EggL's one? I think it should be added in the update server...

Quality of it is good. Do you plan to integrate that language file in your update system?

Oh, yeah, sorry.
Fix this line in Updater.ini - [lang en] section:
Code:
2  = Invert Selection
into

Code:
2  = Cancel
I updated it in the download archive too.
Btw you can write your native language here (I guess german) for Updater.


...And one more news: I updated files on from latest Infium (yesterday's).

Perhaps, if I have some time, I'll translate it into german. But I can't promise you..


BTW: Updating went fine!


Another problem: If I shutdown and updater is still running in tray, windows says that the process can't be closed and I must kill it by myself. Sometimes, the message from updater appears if I really want to close it.
Perhaps you can change updater in that way, that it doesn't show a warning message if windows tries to shutdown.

I'm really sorry that there was no newest Infium on my update server for more than 24 hours, but I am very ill these days and I have no support now, as all friends are very busy. Since the next Infium release, server content will be updated almost instantly, I promise. Now, I updated content to Infium 9000 (QIP 2.0.9000) packed 2007-09-18 22:27.

Final Updater 1.1 will be released as soon as I will cure and finish all the unattached work, well, I hope, this month.

I think I won't notice here about server updates anymore, if someone is interested about the server content, look @ http://forum.qip.sk/index.php?topic=160.0 , yeah, it's slovak, but filenames and numbers (dates) are universal (I use little endian form dd. mm. yyyy there, instead of iso date in my update system).
