IMatch updater app
« on: July 24, 2018, 10:04:10 PM »
When IMatch detects an update, a popup is shown.
If you decline the update, the lower left of the status bar shows the text: photools.com Software - Update available (white on green).
Clicking on that text brings you to the customer portal; probably a good idea to open the updater app as well?

Another thought/idea... I like the fact that the updater "takes care of business"... downloads the update, shuts down IMatch and installs the update.... but - should it also have an option checked at the end to restart Imatch after install?  More than likely - we want to be back in Imatch because we came from there originally.  Not sure if your installer software has this option...

anyway... the updater works great BTW!!

The installer toolkit I has 'ways' to do this, but I don't know how, it requires writing a custom DLL etc. I don't want to go there.

Thanks! The power of IMatch Apps and the photools.com cloud.

No worries.. was just an idea.. not worth the time unless you want to do one of your "distraction coding" things during down time..  8)

I've added this feature to the next release.
