# v15 not on ftp site?

#### Charles G

Seems that the v15 is not on the ftp site - either in the \beta\ or \tcmd\ folders. I did see the message abnout the download.jpsoft.com link but why not on the FTP site?

I used to update my installers by doing "copy /u" from the ftp address. "copy /u" doesn't work with http addresses, unfortunately. I switched to a batch file based on what I saw in previous threads and modified it a bit. the batch file downloads the update.aiu file, reads that file to see what version is on the web site, then downloads the installer if it's a newer version than what I have already. Works well for me.

Here's the batch file I use if you're interested.

Code:
@echo off

echo.
filever /b /e *.exe
popd

goto end

iff %_? eq 0 then
iff %@verinfo[%[prod]-%[ver]%[bit].exe] ne %@word[-0,%@iniread[.\%[prod]%[bit]update.aiu,Update,Name]] then
endiff
endiff
return

:end

What if one wants a version prior to v11 - not sure what the call to "gosub download" should be for them. I tried just entering the same but it had a http crash...

#### drwtsn32

I don't think v11 is on the web site so this batch file probably won't work.

Why is the FTP site being discontinued? I have not seen a single mention of this - except in this thread....

Also what does:
filever /b /e *.exe

There are dozens of previous messages about this, and I'm not going to reopen the issue now.

Suffice to say that the time spent maintaining the FTP site & blocking the hundreds (sometimes thousands) of daily attacks was costing JP Software in the neighborhood of several hundred dollars for each of the < 10 users who were using it.

That just shows the version information for the downloaded files. Filever is an external utility I've had for a long time, I'm sure you can do the same with internal function variables.

Code:
pdir /(@verinfo[*] f) *.exe
