0.7.2 installed and tested. Flawless.
mapped it to my remote to make life easier.
An option to launch XBMC on update completion would save me a few buttin presses.
Excellent work. Really this app will save countless man hours.

just tried the update tool, worked like a charm, good stuff, really easy to use

Tested it as well, tool seems to work as it should. No f--k ups either or overwritten files as far as i can see
I have a habbit of copying a xbmc folder as backup just in case, maybe "snapshot" feature on update would be something to concider?
I know....not a biggie and I can do it on my own, but together with future scheduled updates maybe it could be neat feature
edit: Not bothering posting it as feature on googlecode. Its just my personal mind rumblings, I can live without it ;-)

A userdata snapshot/backup feature is a very good idea.
only issue is that userdata can get very big but thats probably all the more reason to backup

Thanks K1, works perfectly when run as administrator on Vista x64.

hmm, i wouldn't mind this!

done with a windows rsync port and some cleverness it could actually be quite feasible to keep a backup of userdata per update.
last time i checked my userdata folder was about 1.2GB so thats something to keep in mind

Rather just a backup of files that were replaced, seems to be more appropriate. Then a quick rollback can be done if necessary.

Any chance this will update plugins as well ...
