BDsoft Updater

Information

  • The BDsoft Updater is a small tool to update programs or other files by the use of "update archives".

For users

  • Download "Update.exe" from the bottom of this page and store it on your computer.
  • Download an "update archive" (see next paragraph) and use it as parameter for the downloaded "Update.exe". Everything else should be done automatically...
    • To use an "update archive" as parameter you may:
      • Connect its extension ".update" to the "Update.exe" and use simple double-clicking thereafter...
      • Drag and drop it on the "Update.exe"...
      • Select it with the right mouse button and choose "open with...", then find and select "Update.exe" and press OK...
      • Ask your local "computer guy" for some other ways to do so... 

For developers

  • An "update archive" is just a simple zip-file that includes all files to be updated and a small ini-file, that tells the program where to copy them. And for some reasons it has not ".zip", but ".update" as file extension.
  • Besides using fixed paths in the ini-file you may also specify registry keys, where the location of the files to be updated has been stored. 
    • If there is no valid registry information, the specified fixed path will be used as a fallback mechanism.
  • As the file format is "zip" you may produce your own "update archives" quite easily. Of course we recommend the backup part of the BDsoft DeskMaster to do so...
  • You may use this software for your own projects according to the following disclaimer & license agreement.
