    I just tried to get the 615 update through the app's auto update. During the install I get an error message popup which says to check the WUU.exe.log file. That file contains just this:


    That's not a critical error - it probably has updated just fine? I'll look at fixing it for later releases, though.

    Very nice, can't wait to try it!


    You don't have to! Here:

    WUU 1.9.615 win32
    WUU 1.9.615 osx
    WUU 1.9.615 osx light version
    WUU 1.9.615 source/linux
    WUU 1.6.446 osx (might work better for Tiger, it will self-update to the latest version)

    To get WUU 1.8.605 and up to work on Windows, you might need to install Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable Package separately. (Typically, if you get a "manifest" error or "Windows side-by-side" error this is the cause)

    MD5 sums:
    f21aa6eeeb656ce2bb13d74eee330130 *WUU-1.9.615.zip
    d60db2baec6b67e2fcf0b1f268a4bc9b *WUU-1.9.615.dmg
    1523629a5ed89e2fbcc01d7a32afa153 *WUU-1.9.615-light.dmg
    1c1795fb8e7e8ccf9e40b407a4fb44bd *WUU-1.9.615-src.zip
    052fb14d25762672977a51de14301936 *WUU-1.6.446.dmg


    What's new?
    * Brand new Curse support
    * Fixed DBM support
    * Fixed WoWI support
    * Filled with awesome(!)

    The first time you run it, it'll ask for the folder you usually download stuff to in your browser; specifying this will hopefully make the Curse updating smoother.

    Okay, I'm close to a version fit for release now.

    Here's a preview of the updating process (which WILL be made smoother, but I aim for a quick release rather than waiting until everything's 100%):

    On a good connection now, but it's late; hoping to fix this crap tomorrow - at least SOME kind of updating.

    hello a virus is detetec whith the news version why please?


    I've had no other reports of a virus in any version since the problems last year, but the process I use to make a Windows program out of the Python source (py2exe) might trip up some virus scanners. As funkydude said, please tell me which virus scanner you use :)

    Anyhow, Jncl has changed WUU to work a bit cleaner with WoWI/Curse now (i.e. helping you check which addons need update, and assist you in updating them manually), so I'll probably build a version from that tomorrow, then we'll look at what else can be done to make the updating process as streamlined as possible within the current limitations.

    It appears to be a JavaScript authentication system. The error/captcha page says you need Java but there appears to be no Java involved. Edit: Looks like it does fall back to a Java Applet if you are not logged in.

    It's sad that WoWMatrix has caused this to happen as these updaters have the potential to cut their bandwith in half if they would implement an efficient API for querying and downloading updates.


    Checking this stuff from here has made me realize something: The Curse web pages are HUGE - go to a random addon page and check page info for the size of the HTML.

    http://wow.curse.com/downloads/wow-addons/details/recount.aspx is around 300Kb, and the addon zip file is 435Kb. (WUU asks for the compressed version of the HTML, so it's usage of bandwidth is significantly lower than 300Kb)

    iThis is got to be frustrating for you. I really appreciate the time you put into this. Try not to see this as a end. I think we knew they were going to do something at some point. Now its done with and good to get it overwith. Now hopefully a permanent solution can be come up with in your new updater.


    Thanks! I've been looking into it a bit now (it's kinda hard with about 7000ms ping and 14kbps bandwidth) and for me it looks like the new download page requires Flash and/or Javascript, can anybody confirm? I only have Google Chrome and IE8 on this computer, so I'll try downloading Firefox+noscript too (which'll take an hour).

    Looks like the option of popping up the download page in the users' browsers and having them click the download button is the best bet so far :( I was hoping to keep everything inside WUU to "isolate" it - for security - but now you'll probably have to load the page in whatever default browser you have (and I just have to hope it's not unpatched IE5 or somesuch)

    EDIT: Looking at it some more, it seems I can't do much from my current connection (I get my real connection back tomorrow, or Saturday at the latest), but at least I've got a feeling for what changes need to be done to WUU; most noticeably, there'll be a new field for Curse (and possibly WoWI - does it still work?) where you specify what the addon's file name typically looks like (e.g. Recount on Curse has filenames like "Recount-v3.1d_stable.zip", so you specify that WUU should look for files that start with "Recount"), and a new global setting where you specify your default download folder (e.g. Chrome on Windows 7 here downloads to "C:\Users\lejordet\Documents\Downloads\").

    In most browsers you can save to a default folder with a few clicks, and WUU can then watch C:\Users\lejordet\Documents\Downloads\ for a new file appearing called something like "Recount*.zip" (or .rar) and act appropriately. It's not very "clean", but it works. This also means I'll try to bring back support for wowui too, as they had the same problems with WUU as Curse had with WoWMatrix (though I removed support for it, since they blocked it anyhow - they got mad when I didn't answer their emails (sent at midnight local time for me) within a few hours).

    This was a long edit, but I'm just trying to say that some things will change, and there's opportunity to make WUU better from it, even if it's less simple as a user (though just going through the 5-6 tabs in your browser for the updated addons to click "Manual install" doesn't sound that bad.

    I'm currently without a stable net connection, but as you've guessed, the changes to Curse breaks WUU. And, as you've also guessed, WUU in its current form will never handle the current Curse page (I've not checked it thoroughly, but I think there's a flash button (or CAPTCHA if you don't have flash/javascript)).

    To sum up what I've written elsewhere:
    I will not try to dodge these buttons, or more dishonest practices to get past them - for more reasons than one, really, not least of which is that WUU is open source, and I don't think I'd like to have my name attached to code that does click-forging or stuff like that. (Not to mention that'd give the WoWmatrix guys "free" code to circumvent these measures - I can't know for sure, but I'd be surprised if they're not at least in part based on one of the open source updaters like WUU).

    I do have some ideas though, to make sure WUU isn't totally worthless:
    1) WUU can still check whether addons have new versions on Curse, and get the link to the download page. WUU could open your browser and ask you to download the file (either by clicking the button or typing the CAPTCHA), then monitor your download folder (assuming your browser downloads to the same folder every time, otherwise ask you to select the zip file) and do the installation. It's one more step, and a bit more tedious when many addons are updated, but I feel it's a good compromise given the circumstances.
    2) Later, then maybe integrate the browsing session into WUU itself, so you enter the CAPTCHA without having to leave WUU.

    tl;dr: Personally, I don't think I'm ever going to use the Curse/WoWI updaters myself (you decide whether you want to call me stubborn or stupid :P ), so I'll make WUU do "something" useful with the sites :) - but it might take more than a week, I'm on a crappy GPRS connection until the weekend.

    Hmm still cant get my beloved updater to work, starts up fine choosing wow dir ect. then it just dont load any further, i deleted the contents of the wuu dir before installing the latest version.

    Guess i will have to try remove the addon list as well from wow dir.

    hmm no dice still


    You'll need to go to %USERPROFILE%\WUU and delete templates.xml :) (sorry, didn't see it before)

    (Yes, I'll fix that bug)

    I have python 2.5.1 installed, too -- I'm a python developer by profession. I'm not sure whether these problems I'm having are particular to my situation or not. I wouldn't think so, but I'm having lots of dumb problems, so I don't know. :/


    Well, if you're a python developer, it's actually better to run it from source :) you only need 2-3 libraries - wxPython, ezPyCrypto (if you want to auto-update) and optionally Psyco (which I'm not sure how much helps)

    I am going to set up a new build environment so I can make releases that actually work on XP, first of all (current build OS: Windows 7 64-bit, so problems were expected, but not of this level :( )

    I do test every addon reported as a problem, and will test Pawn tomorrow :)

    Lately -- by which I mean the last couple releases -- I've been sporadically getting an error on update like this:

    I'm not sure what would be causing this -- I don't have threads enabled or anything, but this /looks/ like some kind of race condition.

    Also, following advice upthread, I had to enable "Preserve newlines as-is" in the newest version of WUU; for at least a year, I've been using it without (looking at) that option. Did something change in the most recent version that affects end-of-line handling? The problem seemed to be with addons that were using backslash-escaped newlines to build large strings, e.g. for an in-game FAQ or credits panel. Postal is the addon that comes to mind most immediately.

    Thanks!


    I built the latest version using python 2.6, which has a ton of changes over 2.5; it might seem like I have to enforce that setting to on then :P

    My unscientific tests show that Vista 32-bit and XP-32 bit require the VC++ download, but Vista 64-bit is happy just with the WUU download.

    Don't have an XP-64 to test.

    Strange stuff this Microsoft stuff sometimes.


    I dropped it over to my laptop to test on XP32, and it worked perfectly - but that one has Visual Studio 2008 Express installed, so of course it'll work :P

    It also works perfectly on a fresh install of Win7 32bit.

    Maybe this is the kick I need to actually make an installer for WUU :P
