-- update all and .bat scripts in NSIS install
« on: September 07, 2007, 01:42:42 AM »
So far I've been happily using .bat file suggested by the_bigg. (And soon enough I wasn't alone in it. :) It's good, hence it's pretty popular). Just to remind you:

@echo off
echo "The setup program is updating itself, please be patient..."
"Setup-Xan.exe" --update-all > nul
cls
echo "Version 4" | pause > nul
"Setup-Xan.exe"

It seems to work perfectly on my XP machine. However, recently, Accolon, who did some testing for Xan's friendship, said that this .bat didn't work on Accolon's machine, and I wonder if it's a serious issue. I'll try to translate:

Quote
"Setup-XanBG1Friend.exe" --update-all 1>nul  line doesn't work. (Copying in nul).
Kulyok: it's update-all > nul, as I posted before. But anyway.

I recommend changing "Setup-XanBG1Friend.exe" --update-all 1>nul
to "Setup-XanBG1Friend.exe" --update-all 1>MyModTempFile.txt
and then deleting MyModTempFile.txt

... because the way it is, installation stops, and bat exits on my machine.

Would you(a general you, if you understand what it all means) please explain to me if there is a real problem, and if I indeed should change anything?

If there's a problem, then it's a M$ problem for not maintaining stuff across versions of Windows. Which one does he use? 32 or 64 bit? Runs as Guest, as User or as Admin?

May be M$, may be not.

Admin: dir > nul
XP: The system cannot find the file specified.
Admin: nul
XP: ' ' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.
Admin: dir > NULL or dir > null
System reply with empty string (I'm happy  :))

my Windows XP uses `nul'. If other versions of Windows use `null', then who is to take the blame?  ;)

:) Well, it is not matter in any case. How about use "> MyModTempFile.txt" and erase "MyModTempFile.txt" after processing, instead using "> null" in bat-file? BGT v1.04 installation, for example, will crash, until bat file will not to be fixed.
