...to those of you who may have stumbled by and are new around here - I apologize for the garbage left for all to see. I guess the smart thing to do is simply avoid coming by, it looks like the site is Officially Abandoned so this crap will only get worse.

do yours wanna save the project? grant someone that IS present at the forum do the changes that are required to keep things running the rights to update the forum software, the rights to create forum areas, the rights to promote someone that is willing to help, the rights to do the things that has to be done to keep things running. and no, yours don't count. why not? you and ceasar never are at the forums and bag for those things just doesn't work. doesn't have someone willing to help? look at the xp script. an user that has the password for it has updated it. why he has it? i've gave it for him, long ago, to fix the things that i was unable to when i was away
so, my point: slavery ended in the US in 1863, if i'm not mistaken. in here, it was done a little after that, in 1888. without allow someone have any kind of rest, because has to work 24/7 alone, slavery is what you get, all again. and why you have slavery? you can't even prepare an replacement for when you are sick. i don't know if you are aware of, but a couple of years ago, i've broke my right arm. according to my doctor, i had to not force it for anything (i've broke my scapula bone). do you think that i had the 45 days of rest that my doctor asked? no. why not? no one was able to. why not? no one else could do it. why not? yours didn't allowed that. so, slavery, all over again
my 2 cents only

All kidding aside, it all sounds like all of the current problems revolve around forum issues. It seems like we still have a pulse here, even if it's fading. Whether the project continues on this forum or another - it feels like there is a desire to keep it going. There just seems like .. I believe gUiTaR_mIkE said it somewhere recently that it's "burn-out on display". It has to be extremely frustrating to deal with the same problems day after day and nobody seems to care. That said, if those problems disappeaaaaaaaared? It's a nice thought anyway.
On the spam issue. Despite my adoration for the female anatomy . I don't come to these forums for information on it. So, on the plus side, at least the spam is obvious spam - and as such, can be easily ignored. I guess that's not the point though. There should be measures in place and/or people with the power to get rid of it.
Again, said it before. I'll keep saying it. I'm still keeping hope alive. And, in the event AutoPatcher is dead .. I yet again thank all those that kept it alive for as long as they did.

What I was always hoping for was a packaged purposed project, it isn't anything new but hopefully would be much clearer than the present projects - a software package that can collect any of the needed package updates, and either install them, with much more feedback so you know what was installed, where etc, or, this is the other part - an option to create an updated install disk. Again, there are hundreds of options but none are really what I would call professional quality in both ease of use and documentation and FREE
You can find a hundred scripts that download the latest updates, a few abandoned projects that can create a disk I suppose but all are only OK in my opinion. AutoPatcher really set a standard here - it is a simple concept, a script turned into a GUI, grew to include a download feature (APUP, woulda been integrated into ONE app), and really made the intended task really easy. I thought - let's add the ability to create an updated disk, a third app of course, then eventually you combine them into one solid package, with documentation, a bit of tech support, and a professional presentation.
Again, this is done in the IT world but costs money, I was hoping to create a free version of a genuine professional grade open-source??? alternative. Remember the old saying - Wish in one hand, S&%t in the other, see which fills up first.

that has an name: bike. but still, i don't replace it by an car
> That said, if those problems disappeaaaaaaaared?
it could help a lot. the major problems in here is that everything goes into just 2 guys: keep the forum clean, user support, update all the scripts, etc. this was the main reason why a few others has burned as well. and at least with one, it's possible that he comes back if those issues are fixed
> The software works OK with XP and Vista (as far as I know)
under x86. under x64, it's more problematic. half of the usual detections doesn't work due that redirected part of windows registry. also, there's the UAC issue, that us to be an problem. but the major issue: a lot of times, you deploy the updates by hand with those 2 and you have to deploy them again after reboot through wu. if i'm not mistaken, this happens due UAC and running it without proper rights. we had an idea to fix this moving to .net but developers issues, it wasn't started
