ModUpdater by _hax

 

This tool is too simple to explain anything smile.gif

Just little app to update mods (currently only all my 3 .net scripts, if you want to get your mod got updated too write me a PM). It connects to the internet and gets list of avalible mods and their latest versions. All appear on "Mods" tab. There's a table with 2 columns - Mod name and status:

name - name of the mod

status - one of following OK (mod is installed and is up to date), Outdated (mod is installed, but is NOT up to date) and Not installed

(mod is not installed)

 

To install/update mod just double click on list and wait a while. Then you shold see message box saying that everything went ok.

 

 

Download (upper right corner):

http://www.haxmods.yoyo.pl (page in english)

 

Feel free to upload ModUpdater anywhere, even if it gets outdated - it updates automatically

PS: App downloads status at startup, but you can refresh it (read update news and mod status) click "Update now" button

PS2: I wrote it is for IV because all mods are for IV at the moment. But if you want get your gta:sa cleo mod got updated too, there's no problem smile.gif

I think it is caused by Win7 (registry)

create file CustomGtaDir.txt in same folder as ModUpdater.exe and write (in notepad) your gta iv directory (without \ in the ending) ex. C:\Program Files\Rockstar Games\GTA IV

and tell me how it went smile.gif

if it doesn't work make sure if you have .net framework 3.5

64Bit uses C:\Program Files (x86)\Rockstar Games\Grand Theft Auto IV and thus your said above fix, fixed it. Thanks for that! I think you should add a feature where if it can't find your game you browse to it. Just a suggestion. Good work on the app though biggrin.gif

Awesome! But something is wrong with this updater, I try to download a new version for this, but then it goes straight to my BIOS updater... sarcasm.gif

What do you call "bios updater"?

App update works like this

1. Check if there is newer version

2. If so, download it

3. run external update app (update.exe) which updates main app (since it cannot update itself)

4. external update app runs main app and shuts itself

5. you have your modupdater updated

Can you just update the download link with the updated main app?

I made auto update function not to update download link every app update. Why can't you just explain your problem?

I have an Asus Mainboard too. This happens to me too. But not only this programm is reacting like that ZModeler2 too.

Just deinstall your bios-updater (I mean why to update bios since the computer is running fine) and its fixed.

I dont know how to remove the updater, it's not in programs list or anything. But this doesn't happen to me in Zmod though.

Check it out now [i mean download again from haxmods.yoyo.pl], I think I fixed it (not sure since I don't have asus mainboard)

Did you execute the update exe using a relative path instead of an absolute path?

 

Did you do something like

 

Process test = new Process();test.StartInfo.FileName = "update.exe";test.Start();

 

 

Instead of

 

Process test = new Process();test.StartInfo.FileName = Application.StartupPath + "\\update.exe";test.Start();

 

 

??

 

Because if you used a relative path (First code example), it could explain why the bios updater opens. It might be trying to open update.exe in C:\Windows\* or C:\Program Files, or whatever, before trying the path of your program.

 

PS: Code examples are written in C#.
