AutoPatcher - Link Cleanup
Posted 02 April 2009 - 04:44 AM
I was messing with AutoPatcher's "About" -> "Release Info" tabs and most of the links given (when highlighting Title)
lead to an outdated autopatcher.com page - it might be a good idea to point the link to the specific Hotfix Depot where
the most recent information can be found.

The information I'm referring to is found like this:
Run AutoPatcher, the release verifies and loads.
You click the "About" tab to the right of "Advanced" and get the scrolling Credits etc.
Now you have 3 tabs, including "Release Info" - click it.
Here you will get the "Loaded Releases" Window -> Title - Date - Author - Official
If you highlight anything listed it gives you the name just below and outside the window. It doesn't reveal itself as a link but it is.
Some links go to autopatcher.com, or to a page on autopatcher.com that is outdated and can't be found (it might be a hidden link),
others lead to the forums. I just thought it would be nice (unless it is too troublesome) to have the links for each release point to it's
own "Depot" page - not a big deal.

in fact, if is that info that you are talking about, that can be easily done. at night, i will replace the rti file from the direct x and extras script. i believe that i will have time for this at night only (something like 8h from now). i believe that the extras should point to here, the java should point to here, the direct x should point to here, etc. in fact, this is more cosmetic, but it's more direct to an user look some infos about each release
ps: i'm sorry, because i didn't realize where was that infos that you are talking about. really, i'm a little slow at this days, i'm not certain about the cause of it yet.

DirectX (Nov 08, I don't have the latest yet) and .Net point to -> autopatcher.com
Office 2003 points Here.
Office Addon Pack points to -> autopatcher.com
As you can see it is pretty random, but this isn't important.
Cristiano, please don't give yourself more work, I was just pointing it out as a cosmetic thing that can be done later on.

All the releases that I have signed point to the generic www.autopatcher.com/forums/. But, as Cristiano says, it's no big deal to change it. I've made a note to insert the appropriate Hotfix Depot link next time I do each one.
So, Windows 2000 will go here;
Windows XP will go here for 32-bit;
and here for 64-bit.
