AppLife Update is an updating solution for .NET software applications. Using AppLife Update, you can easily enable your applications to discover, download and apply updates automatically.  It handles all of the challenges of updating .NET software.

Updates in V4.5

  • Multiple Action Lists - Segment your update action lists into independent, callable action lists.
  • Action List Undo/Redo - The Make Update application now supports undoing and redoing user interactions while creating your update action lists.
  • SQL Server Specific Actions - Supports both transacted and non-transacted database work.
  • Use Rich Text for Update Summaries - Write update summary text using rich text.
  • Pre/Post Build Batch Scripting - Move/Copy files and take other actions before and after an update is built.
  • Improved File Comparison Actions - Improved filtering provides the ability to skip individual subfolders from comparison consideration.
  • Automatic Selection of Last Update Version as New Update Target - Automatically detect the version number of the last published update, then use that version number as the target version for new updates, simplifying patch-style update builds.
  • Add Attributes to a New XML Element - When creating a new XML Element within an existing XML file during an update, you can now specify a collection of attributes that will be added to the new XML Element.
  • Manage Multiple Selected Updates Simultaneously - When managing updates published to an update location, you can now select multiple published updates and perform actions on all selected updates.
  • Identify the Architecture of Client Operating System - When executing an update, it is often necessary to identify whether the client is running a 32-bit or 64-bit operating system. The Set Shared Property action now provides this ability.
  • Delete Files Action Supports Wildcards - You can now delete files based on * and ? wildcard characters, simplifying the removal of blocks of files during an update.
  • Force 32-bit Assembly Registration - When registering .NET assemblies for COM registration during an update you can now force 32-bit registration when updating 64-bit operating systems.
  • Prepare a New Publish Folder without Publishing an Update - Creating and testing a new update folder from the AppLife Update application now prepares the folder for use.
  • Override Permissions Elevation Settings - The permissions elevations settings set in application code can be overridden for individual updates.
  • Publish Updates to a Location Specified by a UNC Path Relative to your Project File - Locations specified relative to the .aup project file can now be targeted to publish updates.
  • New Tester Property on the Update Controller - In addition to the app.config setting, clients can now be identified as able to detect updates marked for "test only" through code by using an update controller property.
