Index Files Tab

The Index Files tab allows you to set the properties to create the Client Side and Server Side index files.

Program ID

Specify the Program ID to which you want to build an automatic software update system.

Index Files Properties

Set the properties for the Client Side and Server Side index files.

         Title. Specify the title of the software (e.g. Test Application).

         Version Number. Specify the version number of the software (e.g. 1.0.0.1).

Client Side Index File

         Server Side Index URL. Select the download method, either HTTP or FTP. Then, specify the URL of the Server Side index file (e.g. http://demo.eleckey.net/update/Updshls.xml).

         Web Service URL. If you deploy the Update Server to provide software update subscription, specify the Web Service URL of your Update Server (e.g. http://demo.eleckey.net/update.asmx). In this case, you do not need the Server Side index file.

noteNOTE: If you customize the Update Server and change the Web Service Namespace, you can add the ns=<WebServiceNamespace> parameter with your Namespace to the Web Service URL, e.g.

http://myserver.web/service.asmx?ns=http://myserver.web/

Server Side Index File

         Download URL. Select the download method, either HTTP or FTP. Then, specify the URL of the update file (e.g. http://demo.eleckey.net/update/testupd.cab).

         Description URL. Specify the URL of the web page that provides the update details (e.g. http://demo.eleckey.net/update/description.html). This web page will be linked from the Updater dialog box, when the end-user clicks the Details button.

Output Index Files

Specify the location to save the index files.

         Client Side Index File. Specify the location to save the Client Side index file. The file name must be UPDSHLC.XML (or UPDSHLCP.XML for patch updates).

         Server Side Index File. Specify the location to save the Server Side index file. The file name by default is UPDSHLS.XML, or can be any name as specified in the Client Side index file.
