I’m trying to launch WinGup (http://wingup.org/) from within my Xojo Windows application, which is located in an “Updater” folder within the program folder. The folder contains GUP.exe (the updater application), libcurl.dll, and gup.xml (a file that contains a number of settings for GUP.exe).
From Windows, within the folder, when I double-click on GUP.exe, all works well (reporting whether or not an update is available. Calling GUP.exe from within my application (code below), WinGup reports an invalid XML configuration file. I think this is because GUP.exe can’t see the gup.xml file, which is located right next to it in the Updater folder.
[code] // Check for update
// Declare variables
Dim f As FolderItem
// Check for update
If Right(App.ExecutableFile.Parent.NativePath, 1) = “” Then
f = GetFolderItem(App.ExecutableFile.Parent.NativePath + _
f = GetFolderItem(App.ExecutableFile.Parent.NativePath + “” + _
f = f.Child(App.UPDATER_EXECUTABLE)
// Error handling
I’ve tried locating the WinGup files in the same folder as my application’s executable file, and the Shell command instead of FolderItem, to no avail. It seems additional logic is needed to pair gup.xml with GUP.exe when launching …
