Database Setup Utility Released!
« on: June 12, 2014, 06:02:54 PM »
In this version i added an update feature that it should work with the betas.
There is a new tab called "Update" where the user have the option to check if the .exe and .dll files of RadioDJ are up to date and if on server there are newer files, they will be listed and the user will have the option to download and replace those files with a click.

Currently, the utility doesn't checks if RadioDJ is running, so i strongly recommend to close RadioDJ before using "Download Updates" button.

To install it, download the archive from Downloads page and extract "Database Setup.exe" to the Setup folder of RadioDJ (and replace the older one).

If the utility is running in the system tray, it will check once in 24 hours for the new file updates and add them to the queue list.

PS, IMPORTANT NOTE:

I didn't and i will not add the option to auto update the program, because it's not a good idea to close such a program in order to complete the process, so it will be the user's choice when and if it will make the update.

The only problem is that it can't update itself as it runs  ;D

But i have an idea, which might work. I think that a running application can be renamed, but not rewritten, so i will simply rename the updated files with the extension ".old" in this way the user can also roll back to the previous version of file if needed.

When I checked for updates, it reported an update for "Database Setup.exe".  The problem is that it will not update while the program is open, and you can not get to the update with the program closed.  ????? What is one to do?    :(

 Did you download the updated new Database Setup zip from the downloads page, which is separate from the RC6 download?

Indeed 3.6 wasn't able to update itself because when is open, it cannot be rewritten.
I released the 3.7 which will rename the existing one with the ".old" extension, so even if the application is running the update will take place, but a manual restart is needed in order to use the new version.

For computers with high security settings, it would be recommended to run this application as administrator.

Just used version 3.7 it found 2 updates and downloaded and updated as it should. I think this could possibly be my favourite addition since the Auto DB back up!!

Nice work Marius!  :ok:

Where is the database setup utility?

I can't find it on the downloads page under utilities.

  degiekes,  Look in your RadioDJ folder for a folder called "Setup". Have a look in that folder.

Well. The backup folder seems to be empty, even it takes the backup every day? I am trying to move my Radio DJ to another PC and I need the backup. I double checked the path and it's correct. Any ideas?  ???

Firstly don't bump old topics...

Are you running the database setup utility as administrator? I believe if its not being ran that way backups won't populate.

Does the folder you are trying to write to have the correct permissions?  Can you take a manual backup?

Sorry, this was the first one I found and I'm on kinda hurry. :/ It's the default folder C:\RadioDJv2\Setup\Backup

How does the manual backup work?

EDIT: I had to relocate the path within the utility - for some reason. Now it works. Thank you so much.  :ok:
