Subject: update.exe launching a exe in install directory
Hiya guys, is there a way i can make the update exe launch a exe i've packed into the directory? Its right next to the update.exe, the reason for this is i'm trying to make my app automatically update itself, i've tried adding a run application to the update script but it doesn't seem to do it, any times or pointers to make the update.exe launch this exe in the root of the install (next to update.exe)
What version of CreateInstall do you use?
What parameters do you specify in Run application command in Update Script?
Do they look like these
Path: INSTALL PATH
Neverming, I managed to get it work now :) my application written in batch sucessfully runs the updater which will launch my script to download the latest update should there be one available :D thanks for your help anyway, I'm tempted to eventually pay for a full version, does the lite version support clearing/deleting existing files from the install directory before copying new ones?
The 'Copy Files' command is available in the Light version and you can specify Overwrite in 'If File exists' combobox. So, may be you don't need Delete files command.
The 'Delete files' command is available in the full version only.
