  1. I know this is years late, but I was looking for something else and saw that one of the issues in this wasn't addressed. The problem with your troubleshooting line is most likely that you didn't quote the URL. This means that your script will crash before it actually echoes anything to the file if there's an ampersand (&) or certain other characters in the {preupdate-url} variable. Try this instead: echo TEST "{preupdate-url}" >> T:\xx.txt
  2. Hi, @Etz! They're using the Akamai Captcha, which is a javascript+cookie-based method of preventing exactly what you're trying to do. It looks like it should be possible to harvest sufficient information from the javascript and build the cookies manually, but it looks like it's going to be a nightmare to setup initially and a single change on their side will break it, so I wouldn't bother with it.
  3. "Automatically" in the sense that it happens on a regular basis, without user interaction, or via some form of switch? As I'm sure you know, /export includes the app commands as well as all other app-specific properties. I suspect you might actually be talking about the global commands. If so, they're included in your jobs.db backup, but you can export those to an external file using Sqlite, DB4S, powershell with an sqlite assembly, or your favorite SQLite editor: SELECT `SettingPath`,`SettingValue` FROM `settings` WHERE `SettingPath` IN ( 'PostUpdateCommand','PostUpdateCommandType',
  4. Yes. Anything you want to execute can be performed in the pre-update command. You can use this to do something like email yourself, or pipe to a text file, or with the /log parameter. If done correctly, you can use just about any information you like (anything you've stored in a variable) in order to send it to yourself. There is a great example of creating your own changelog here using the "after updating an application" global command. I leave Ketarin open 24/7 and pipe the results of every download to a log file in a global after-update command, and within the pre-update command for a
  5. If you're just looking for an Nvidia app profile, here's mine. Be aware that they no longer provide 32-bit drivers, so this is for the latest US-English 64-bit WHQL GeForce driver. It would only take a couple variable changes to modify the language/location, and other details. They're all stuffed into URL parameters so it's pretty easy to fix. <?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?> <Jobs> <ApplicationJob xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" Guid="db7445b0-3205-40e7-9c43-3502db1382f1"> <Category>Driv
  6. You're confusing two languages: batch and Ketarin. Ketarin variables are the native variables as well as those you create yourself on the variables page. The Ketarin variables are, of course, processed before batch variables since the batch script is generated *from* Ketarin. This means that you will never use a "{%whatever%}" syntax, but might very well use a "%{whatever}%" syntax, depending on what you're putting in your variables. You could, for example, use a global Ketarin variable to specify what path you would like to extract to and use that in place of the {whatever} and have it proces
  7. There are a couple examples using the pre-update command to perform the actual download via an external program. I use this process with several apps that don't play well with Ketarin or otherwise require additional handling (like torrent-based downloads).
  8. This is how start/end works. If you create a new one and play with it you'll see how it works.
  9. I'm afraid some sites don't play well with Ketarin or any other automated means of analysis. This is one of them.
  10. There is a difference between "save in folder" and "save to file", and this is why you can select only one of those options. "Save in folder" allows you to specify the folder path that you want to save the downloaded file to. You can use a relative folder or explicit folder and you can use variables in the folder name. The file that is downloaded will be saved with the filename assigned by the server. You'll end up with something like ".\your\path\setup.exe" or "your\path\tails.iso". Notably, if the original filename does not include the version number or language, and you want to includ
  11. This is the reason I haven't switched over. I'm excited about the new feature (keep x versions) but even starting with a clean database it crashes on me more often than not.
  12. One option is to Ping localhost, which inserts a delay of roughly one second per echo. This will insert a 5 second delay: ping -n 5 Or you could call the powershell Start-Sleep cmdlet: Start-Sleep -s 5
  13. The mailing function in the forum works fine as long as you're not blocking it. I received notification about your comment within 10 minutes of you posting it. Consider whitelisting,, and These are the three IP addresses used by the Ketarin forum in the last couple years.
  14. We both gave you answers to accomplish your request using advanced options. Perhaps we need to show you the simplest method: Click the "Add new application" button. In the resulting New Application window: 1) Select either "save to file" or "save in folder" as the default behavior. 2) Enter the path or filename ({variables} OK!) 3) Click "Save as default" Every new application you create after this point will use these settings. Any other aspects you assign before clicking "Save as default" will also be assigned to new applications, such as category, new default
  15. There have been several issues with FileHippo support over the years. It would not surprise me at all that FileHippo has changed something and it doesn't work again. I don't use FileHippo anymore since it's been unreliable, so you really have two options: configure your downloads to use a different source, or wait until a new release resolves whatever is going on with FileHippo. @floele ?
