Alright guys. I'm getting ready to release a new build. The main update in this build is self updates. Kind of ironic how an app that is built from ground up to update another app can't update itself. Any how.
I need some help from you guys. I would really appreciate anyone who is reading this to go to the folder that they have xbmxupdate installed, zip up your log folder and send me a copy. it would really help me a lot to fix any issues or miss behaviors that the app has logged.
Ps. The log files don't contain any personal information.

This is really cool, thanks!
One feature I would love is an option not to overwrite certain files, in particular the keymap.xml.

That should be requested from the installer and not the updater.

xexe Wrote:That should be requested from the installer and not the updater.This app doesn't use the installer, and the installer should already not be overwriting the keymap.xml file. If the keymap.xml is being overwritten by the upgrader, then it is an upgrader issue. Post the issue at the Google code homepage for this app so kay.one can track it better.

Apologies I completely misunderstood how the updater worked.

Alright guys, good news, just uploaded 0.7.0 which automatically updates itself! so ideally you would never have to re download the app.
I have also fixed the keymap.xml issue temporarily but will come up with a solution for an ignore file list.
give it a go, and let me know how it works!

alright dudes and girls! there was bug in 0.7.0 which would break self update. please download 0.7.2 manually! i promise its the last time!

I just tried your update program. Great idea!.
I'm running Vista Ultimate Sp1 x64 and get an error when trying to install. It downloads and extracts fine, but get access denied when it tries to upgrade the installation. I assume that it has something to do with running Vista x64?
Posted the log file on pastebin.

sorry, i had this on the old homepage, somehow got left out of the new homepage,
Windows Vista Users: if you have XBMC installed in C:\Program Files\ or any other system folder, XBMCUpdate should be started with admin right otherwise it will not have access right to update XBMC. To start XBMCUpdate as admin, right click on the icon and click on "Run as administrator". If you have XBMCUpdate setup in windows scheduler make sure you have the option "Run with highest privileges" checked.
hope it helps!
