Autopatcher kills it selt, why?
Posted 09 August 2009 - 01:00 AM
I downloaded latest apup.zip and unpacked it under windows "program files (x86)" / "Autopatcher", after that I ran "apup.exe" and then Autopatcher Updater automatically marked first two boxes (AutoPatcher Updater 1.0.5 + AutoPatcher Engine 5.6.81) to be downloaded. Then ran "autopatcher.exe", it made the connection, checked license boxes twice and after that the (autopatcher + autopatcher engine) loaded modules ok, confirmed release integrity ok and then killed it self on last stage loading folder structure and simply said that you have loaded wrong release.
So, I can't fix it or run it differently, am I doing something wrong or is this something that appears to all of you who tries to run it for XP x64?

Is it terminated for eternity or what?

no. but the current team members doesn't have the hardware nor the software to run x64. due that, we can't do an decent x64 script, because we will be unable to test it. but, if someone is willing to join the team...

my friend, i don't see any reason to lie about it. but not everybody update his own machines very often, you know. in any case, this is the machine that i'm running right now, according to my licensed version of everest 4.6:
AMD Athlon XP, 2083 MHz (12.5 x 167) 2600+
MSI K7N2 Delta2 (MS-6570E) (5 PCI, 1 AGP, 3 DDR DIMM, Audio, LAN)
nVIDIA nForce2 Ultra 400
1 GB PC3200 DDR SDRAM (3.0-3-3-8 @ 200 MHz) (2.5-3-3-7 @ 166 MHz) (2.0-2-2-6 @ 133 MHz)
NVIDIA GeForce 6800 GS/XT (256 MB) (it should be showing like GeForce 6800 Extreme, but...)
LG M1721A [NoDB] (170116843009)
APC Battery BackUP
the power supply is an TT W0008R and the hd is an seagate 250GB SATA 2 (working as SATA 1, because the motherboard doesn't have support for SATA 2)
my spare machine is almost the same one, but the processor is from another family and the same with the motherboard. the vga card is an GeForce 5200 (if so, because the usage that i have for this machine is also an multimedia center only) and the HD that my spare machine has is an PATA seagate 120GB. of course, my spare machine just have an power surge protection, nothing more. if you wish, i can take those expects too.
and, by the way, i don't have any reason to replace those machines in a short time, because the usage that i have for booth doesn't require state of the art machines. as for the other guys, they say that they don't have the hardware and the software. i don't have any reason to doubt that
but of course, those that have the hardware and the software are welcome to do the script, but there's an basic pre-requisite: the OS must be genuine. booth of my machines are running oem versions of win xp and booth are genuine. if i look into my stuff, i'm sure that i will find my other 3 licenses for the same OS

Intel Core 2 Quad Q9650 cpu
Kingston KVR1333D3N9K2/4G memory (8Gb installed)
Western Digital 1Tb SATA 11 32Mb cache drives (two each)
Plextor PX-712SA and PX-716SA Internal SATA drives
Diamond Radeon HD 4870 Video card 1Gb GDDR5 RAM, PCI Express (two each) connected in CrossfireX mode
Creative SoundBlaster PCI Express X-Fi Titanium Fatal1ty audio card

Lian-Li PC-A77 Full tower case
Samsung SyncMaster225bw (two each) one connected to DVI one to analog
I am running Windows XP Pro x64 w/SP2 on it and Win7 RC 64-bit.
The issue as I see it concerning 'testing' AutoPatcher scripts is what does that entail? I have no experience with 'scripts' and as far as I know you have no manuals or guides that an interested person could use.

oh well, there's this. it is very basic, but it works. still, update the scripts isn't so hard. basically, all that you have to do is take the download link, size and md5 and do an module for it. since a lot of updates work in the same way, all that someone needs to do is take an already existent module, make a copy of it and replace the relevant infos.
as for the issues with x64, besides the 2 major issues, there's the time for update all those scripts. speaking for myself only, i can't find any time for another script anymore and even my girlfriend is complaining about my free time. and she is right. i don't have any :-(

Did a quick review of the info therein - will have to read more closely later to decide if understanding could be easily achieved or if the project is not extremely time consuming.
Wife/girlfriend issues not applicable, am divorced and being retired provides plenty of time. Issue is project complexity and/or overall time consumption and/or worth of project as WinXP Pro x64 is, basically, obsolete and Win7 64-bit is on its way.

well, to build one release from scratch, time can be an problem. but it can be done, one update at a time
> am divorced
twice. and due my "free" time, soon i will be single again
about windows seven, yep. i've read something about the ones that helped on the beta stages of seven win a copy of it, but the news wasn't clear about everybody or just the invited ones. i'm sure that i will not run seven in a short time, but the license could help (at least in here, you almost have to sell a kidney to buy an retail version). but until there, i will keep running xp. at least, 90% or more of the machines that i had to fix last year was still running xp (and the reason for that isn't that vista is immune to viruses/users/power surges)

I've been running both versions for over a month. The release candidates will not expire until, I think, March or April of 2010 so you will habe plenty of time to use/play with them.
I have seen no postings or comments anywhere that would prohibit you form downloading them even though you are outside the US or Europe.

or patience. i've already have the rc versions since some time ago, since i did some tests with vista rc. but several years ago, when i was learning something about linux, i've downloaded an distro that had 5 cds at dial-up. patience is an wonderful thing... but my machines barely are able to run it
> prohibit you form downloading
and isn't. you can download it from here, win the license until march 2010 (after that reboots every 2 hours). but to anyone that wishes this one, run. the download will end at august 20th. except for the issue "autopatcher doesn't recognize seven rc", it may work. but the news that i've read are about an full license, not the beta/rc ones. well, i'm sure that they will not deliver it for Brazil, so...
