The Web Update Wizard adds automatic update functionality to your applications with a single line of code. Just upload your revised software files, together with a simple script, to your web server. This solution works with any server or ISP as no server-side processing is required. The Web Update Wizard is a one-off, non-recurrent cost - there are no ongoing fees or additional expenses.
The Web Update Wizard runs on all versions of Windows and works with Visual Basic, C++, Delphi or any other development environment capable of making Windows DLL calls or launching a Windows process.
The Web Update Wizard V2 is already in use across thousands of desktops across the world. A selection of testimonials from enthusiastic current users is available from the PowerProgrammer web site.
Every time a user runs your software, the Web Update Wizard will check for updates then download and install them as required. You can control whether the updates occurs automatically or wait for a prompt from the user. You can embed a call to the Web Update Wizard from your application with a single dll function call or via the ShellExecute() API - either in your application's start-up code or in response to a menu/button press. Web Update Wizard can even run updates on systems without Administrator privileges.
The Web Update Wizard contains features that other update components leave out and provides an all in one update and marketing solution.
Some of the new features in V3 of The Web Update Wizard include:
Â Full multi-lingual support. All user interactions can now be easily customised via language files.
Â An easy to use Project manger for preparing update scripts / uploading files to server.
Â More customisable dialogs.
Â Syntax definitions / clipbooks for popular file editors.
These features add to an already extensive list, which includes:
Â Built in (optional) unzipping of zip update files, including folder replication.
Â Conditional updates based on file version number, datestamp or existence.
Â Launch any number of processes, either before the update has been downloaded or afterwards, in either the logged on user's security context or SYSTEM/Administrator mode. Conditional launches for each operating system (via optional parameters).
Â Extensive folder constants for 'Program Files', 'My Documents', 'Windows', 'Desktop', 'Temp' etc. folders.
Â Your own custom messages / user interaction dialog messages. All user messages can be customised and can be made locale specific, based on the locale of the logged on user. (Default=English).
Â Customise the look and feel of the Web Update Wizard dialogs with your own colours, fonts, icons and bitmaps.
