Hello,

I am currently charged with evaluating whether or not we will incorporate TrueUpdate into our product. As such, I must produce a working prototype in the next two days. The client displays the following message:

Log:
Could not download update information.

Update information file #1
Invalid file type.
Possible causes:

1. You are not connected to the Internet. Please connect to the Internet and try again.

2. The Internet server that you are trying to connect to is not available at this time. Please try again later.

Update information file #2
Invalid file type.
Possible causes:

1. You are not connected to the Internet. Please connect to the Internet and try again.

2. The Internet server that you are trying to connect to is not available at this time. Please try again later.

This message won't make any sense to the end-user as connecting to the internet server does not seem to be the issue at all.

I was able to capture the following debug information from the client:

Checking server file location condition
Condition not specified
Trying location...
Downloading file
Download successful
START: Checking for client update file
Downloading client update file: "xxxxx/clientupdate.ini" -> "C:\DOCUME~1\USER\LOCALS~1\Temp\tuclient.ini"

SET VARIABLE: %SFUsedIndex% = 0
END: Get Server File
END: Check for Update screen

START: Update Failed screen
Displaying Update Failed screen
END: Update Failed screen
END: Wizard interface
END: UPDATE PROCESS
Closing client

It seems that the updateinfo.dat is missing. Is this normal? I see the benefit of using this product rather than developing this ourselves, but if I can't show a prove of concept, I doubt my boss will approve the purchase of TrueUpdate. Please help!!! Any support is greatly appreciated!!

From your post and performing some tests, it appears that you may be pointing the client file to an executable instead of the TrueUpdate server file *.tup. That is something that you should initially check. If you are still having problems, please email support@indigorose.com and include your client and server project files so we can see exactly what your design is.

The debugging tools are great and I was able to determine what the problem was. My problem turned out to be that when I published the server file, the file extension of .uif was dropped. This was the root of my problem. This product is cool!!!
