Dedicated to software developers looking for quick and easy solutions for updating their applications, TrueUpdate is a comprehensive tool with support for HTTP and FTP, which can be easily integrated and configured. It's wrapped in a familiar interface for creating client and server scripts, featuring samples to help you get started.
Syntax highlights are supported. With the aid of an action wizard, it becomes simple to put together scripts for application exit, breaking out of the current block of script being executed, returning the last error code, minimizing and restoring the window, and many other actions. All these actions are grouped in application, crypto, debug, DLL, drive, file, screen, service, string, table and other categories.
Variables, file and folder paths can be inserted anywhere in the code, along with quick, predefined scripts such as commenting on one or more lines, if statements, or while loops. Besides standard find and replace functions, you can record and play up to 10 macros, show whitespace, or import registry values or entire .reg files.
Settings can be customized when it comes to the TrueUpdate servers, session variables, theme, taskbar title, encryption key, log file, taskbar visibility, and others. The tool's functionality can be enhanced with the help of plugins. To build a project, it's only necessary to specify the output folder, filename, EXE compression, and upload locations.
TrueUpdate worked smoothly in our tests and didn't hamper system performance. It has comprehensive LUA scripting features and, thanks to its clear-cut interface, it should meet the requirements of many developers interested in a straightforward solution for keeping their software up to date. According to its maker, it should work on all Windows versions until 95, which means it's compatible with older hardware configurations too.
