best wishes for the new year !
I want to create with SF an updater for my apps - it will connect to my server, check if there is a newer version, and if yes download and install the files.
So it is in fact an application, not an installer - there are no files embedded in the setup, just a couple of screens and a bit of script code. File is named update.exe
I know how to do this, the issue is such updater should be allowed to connect to my server, so the user firewall should be configured accordingly.
And the problem is that the file which should be allowed to connect, irsetup.exe, does not exist - it's created in a temp folder when I run update.exe, then is started by update.exe, and is then deleted automatically by update.exe at the end.
Even if I create a firewall rule that allows irsetup.exe to connect, my firewall pops up an alert that irsetup.exe tries to connect to somewhere every time I run update.exe (I guess because irsetup.exe always has a 'now' timestamp, so the firewall thinks it has been changed and ignores the rule).
Any idea for a workaround? Like is it possible to run irsetup.exe directly?
(when I try that it gives an error, but should be possible).
