Downloading updates with dialup.
Posted 28 November 2011 - 10:59 PM
Also, I can set the computer to reconnect automatically, but can apup be made to automatically open and start downloading updates so I don't have to be present to click on the "Next" button.
I am using windows XP SP3 32bit and apup 22.214.171.124
P.S. I have been waiting for a program that will save and install updates quickly and without an Internet connection.
Thank you for making Autopatcher available.

It seems that over the past couple of months apup has downloaded just about everything I need, I think. I guess I'd better copy it to cd or flash drive before Murphy's Law takes effect as it often does.
I wish I could manage a better connection than dialup but living out in the woods makes life a bit of a challenge sometimes. Luckily I've managed to make discount dialup work extremely well, well except for file uploading and downloading.
Have a great day.

There is a way you can make it start downloading...I will work up a command for you as soon as I look it up.
edit: ok I looked it up and apup2 can run in full auto mode with no assistance... you just need a command line like this
original apup is a different matter. It needs to have its script downloaded before it can run.
Make a bat file and throw the following lines into it.
apup2.exe /log /localscript:xpsp3.script
Place this bat file into your apup dir... call it what ever you want to.

For some reason setting the connection to come on as a scheduled task and even to reconnect if dropped don't work any more. I'm sure not caused by download xp.bat. I probably broke something. I'm going to try a clean-cp, scans, etc. If that doesn't help, the system is way passed due for a complete system recovery, kind of had one foot in the grave for a while now.
Placed as an attachment, the script that runs when I click on the download xp.bat

"_AutoPatcher for Windows XP Service Pack 3 (x86) English" in it's entirty, pasted it to Notepad, named it 'download xp.bat' and saved it as "All Files" but the same problem occures except this time I noticed that the cmd window closes after a moment.
