Just wanted to bump this a little. I updated my archives (as you can see here and here), but I won't keep updating them in the future as WHD does a great job and my work seems a little redundant.

 

So please Lego, hope you'll finish integrating the update lists, so Win Toolkit can download directly the needed updates, and this before ~ 15 of february. So all users can enjoy patch tuesday updates / hotfixes from next month :)

Yes I know it's not inside Wintoolkit.

I downloaded it and tried to use it, unfortunally I get a Unhandled exception always when I start it up.

I have .win7 x64, net 4.5.1, 4gb ram, 130gb free on d: and 93gb free on c:

I have cleared the temp, tested to move it from d: to c:, reinstalled .net.

I can see that people use it to download updates (not me then).

Do I need some files that is missing or does it need more than 4gb ram which sounds strange.

Here are the details from the "Unhandled exception" :

************** JIT Debugging **************
To enable just-in-time (JIT) debugging, the .config file for this
application or computer (machine.config) must have the
jitDebugging value set in the system.windows.forms section.
The application must also be compiled with debugging
enabled.

For example:

<configuration>
    <system.windows.forms jitDebugging="true" />
</configuration>

When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception
will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the computer
rather than be handled by this dialog box.


Does anyone have a clue?

In the meantime I have downloaded RicaNeagas updatepacks (Thanks by the way)

Im so happy about this integration. :)

WHD is also a great tool and going the same way of WTK.

 

Few questions:

- Would it will be a full integration?

Means, supported the full (main)-functionality;

Example: Can also delete superseded updates?

- Whats about the update-structur of code?

Means, if comes updates for WHD, comes also for WTK?

- Whats about integrate .UL list?

Or can i convert UL into .xml and "hard" integrate?

(My dream would be a mega updatelist, thats the result of work of all update-Repo makers. :)

Or for alternative i can adding xmls from all repo maker, so i can choice what i want download.)

I don't think a full integrate will be the best choice and frankly who would ever want that?

 

I was thinking that WTK will have acces to the updates repo of WHD and after some time of lacking it it finally have an built in updates downloader. That's all it needs in my opinion from WHD.

 

Who wants the other features of WHD, just use it as separate program.

Oh.. mh.. Okay.
Was thinking that.

But then its not a "replacing", its "just" an updated existing update-catalog feature. :)
I would miss some functions, and i think some of them would be usefull also for existing update-catalog.
Example this "delete superseds" or this selecting-menus in newer versions, filter-options, and more...

(Im not meaning the other [same] stuff like convert msp etc, im just meaning the update-downloader-frame)

Yay, at the end its a thing of taste - may.
But no good news for me.. :(

 

Update:

Or i do not right remember?

Have WTK original Update-Catalog for example this "right-click-on-list"-feature from WHD?

As I remember it the update catalog worked better than current WHD implementation.

 

For ex:

 

1. The new updates were auto-selected and presented on top of the list

 

2. All supersedded updates that are not in the curent list were moved to "Old" folder

 

That's what I still remember and wish they remain the same.

As ianymaty said, new updates should be auto-selected. If an update is superseded, then why on earth would you want to keep it anyway?  Having it moved to the "Old" folder is best, IMHO.  You will still have it available if you ever need to use it at a later time, but Win Toolkit would not integrate it anyway, AFAIK, so that seems the best approach.  Or did I misunderstand what you meant by "mark all additional".
 
Cheers and Regards

@bphlpt
Unfortunately yes, you did misunderstand.
My mistake, may i have to really proof my english texting. :)

Yea, in first i was thinking that no option for unselect/delete superseds exist in Update-Catalog-Tool (UCT).
Then ianymaty have tell me correct that UCT have already this option.
So i told that i may make a request - for other - things.

For example, this "mark all additionals"-feature.
Additionals means all extra downloads, like "Additional Updates" or "Extra Updates" from WHD Update list.
