How to use Visual Update Express?

Postby Silvergreen » Mon Jun 18, 2018 10:36 am

Hello,
I've read the manuals for Visual Update Express, but I'm doing it a bit wrong ...
I created the INI file and uploaded it to OneDrive. Then I created a link and added it to the "main update address".

In the .ini I insert the drive Link of the setup file.
vue2.PNG

But when I start the setup, no VUE opens.
Well, it can not work, because every time I upload a new setup file to OneDrive, the link changes. Then I have to change the link in the INI file and upload to OneDrive. And now I change the "main update address". Then I create a new setup. Upload it ... Change the link in the INI... an eternal cycle that never ends ... So I guess I misread or misunderstood it. A short tutorial would be nice.
Many thanks

It's not really recommended to use a cloud based service like One-Drive, Box, etc as the link does change every time with most of those rendering the updater useless. You would want to have your own website to use with it normally, that way the link always stays the same.

Ok, but the updater does not open in general
