Suggestion for Updates

I think a majority of users wouldn't appreciate a program automatically downloading updates and installing them for you...how would you like it if Micro$oft did it for you automatically with all their wonderful updates?

uTorrent is another program that has such a feature...

 

 

AND that has what all to do with Imgburn????? <_<

 

 

Oh, it has nothing to do with ImgBurn....

 

I just made an addition to blutach said...

 

Some progs do this - PgcEdit, Filezilla are 2 I can think of.

But, I mean so what? Is the update procedure so totally onerous? I mentioned FIlezilla, cos it has frequent builds and this procedure is useful. But how often does a new ImgBurn come out?

It's not so easy to code an auto-self-update feature which can work for users who don't have Administrator rights.

 

I hope none of us here are running routine tasks as Administrator :rain::chair::P

 

I think it's best for a program to auto-check whether there's a new version, but leave the installing of same to be done manually in a special Administrator session.

 

Disclaimer: I don't have Vista and later, so don't know whether some UACish feature makes that easier to do slickly yet safely.
