SUC v0.2 Under Development

Software Update Checker v0.2 Under Development already?! Well if you call it developing… I call it modifying.

This version is just a little different, it will let you specify the registry key of the software you are checking for, so now it can compare your local version with the one from the website and it will tell you if you need to update it or if your version is current.

Someone suggested it and I thought it would be hard to read registry keys in Java but it’s actually quite simple (after you copy the example from the Java website ;)). It’s almost finished, I just have to modify the current webpage for v0.1 and change the examples a bit.

Just remember, since this version will read from the registry, not all programs store registry keys at all while some others may but might not store anything about the programs version. This is the reason why it’s skipped to v0.2, so that you can choose which SUC version suits you best. Edit: I might as well just make it backwards compatible with the v0.1.

Off to bed now.
