  1. Please see image below for a complete description of the method : This is not a new feature; however it is very useful and sufficiently obscure that I was not aware of it, after several years of extensive Ketarin use.
  2. @Sydnelson What I do atm : 1. Create separate Ketarin jobs for each version. 2. During installation run both, but ... 3. Each job checks for the windows version and architecture appropriate for the program. 4. Installation occurs only when conditions are met. In case you need to download additional files, use Powershell's wget\Invoke-WebRequest, or GNU wget, stored next to the Ketarin executable, eg. "{startuppath}\BIN\wget.exe". If you're new to Ketarin I can provide a more detailed step-by-step answer if you like?
  3. @Etz What errors does Ketarin log show? Tried the script with slight modifications, to account for assumption not met by my system, without issue. Functional modifications : Finds executables in current app dir, rather than dir specified in "portable". Tested as an app\job specific script, not global. Global variable shortcuts = C:\ $PortableAppsPath = (Get-Item $app.CurrentLocation).DirectoryName $WShell = New-Object -ComObject WScript.Shell $Executables = Get-ChildItem (Get-Item $app.CurrentLocation).DirectoryName -Filter '*.exe' -Recurse if ($Executables.Count -gt
  4. Thank you! ----- Download link : https://ketarin.org/download
  5. Thanks for the feedback. I've identified the number of download segments as cause for the difference between our results. In my original post the value is set to 1, resulting in an extended delay of 2-4 minutes - not present with segments set to 2 or more(your case). Seems to apply only to the first job run; after the file is downloaded successive job runs are not delayed in either case. I wrongly assumed failure because of this extended delay and lack of valid download indicator.
  6. Google Drive direct links not downloading, with unusual behavior Context Have written a Powershell script to get direct download URL of Google Drive stored files. The URL produced can be used in any web-browser to download the file directly, but not in Ketarin(depending on file type). To reproduce Import gdrive_test.xml into Ketarin. Update the job. Expected outcome Qualifications This behavior depends on the file-type : .zip and .mp4 files will fail, while .jpg and .doc files will download. Different files may be tested by changing the "
  7. Thank you. It was a silly user(my) error, pardon me.
  8. After attempting to update to beta 4(thanks), I get the following - Ketarin does not start:
  9. Possible issue with multi-segment downloads To reproduce: 1. Set download options to : 2. Import and run attached job file : glasswire.xml Observed problem: 1. On update, Ketarine first presents the following error: 2. And then :
  10. I've attached a working job file which you can import into Ketarin(1.8.7) : File > Import. You will notice that no special settings are required to get it working. I believe Ketarin can handle simple file redirects of this kind without issue; however problems do arise when one is redirected to a website which requires running of javascript to generate the url. Please note that you must change the download directory according to your setup. Edit : On the next day the job stopped working, I've made the required changes and re-uploaded. FreeFileSync.xml
  11. Beta 3 : Impressions after a week of use : The new features are extremely useful, but they should be used sparingly. Specifically the use of url-variables-as-scripts, in custom columns : This means each job has a variable which holds a script; this variable is referenced and run to produce the value of a custom column. The script being run, in my case, compares the creation date of each file and calculates the days since update : (New-TimeSpan (GI $app.CurrentLocation).LastWriteTime (Date)).Days Issues were myriad and some intermittent : 5-10s startup times(~100 jobs) crash on start
  12. No. Will try again in a few weeks time.
  13. Thanks logged in. However both image uploads and external image embedding is disabled, as is page creation(not needed atm). I've added a section to the functions page, with bare links to the external image host.
  14. Not able to add to the wiki. Tried and failed: - logging in with forum details - creating mediawiki account, and using those details Login attempts result in : " There is no user by the name[...] "
  15. Working regex : (?<=v)\d+\.\d+\.\d+(-beta\.\d+)? Note : It should continue to work even after the beta, assuming they don't change versioning scheme. Ketarin will match the first instance only and then stop. Luckily, in most cases the latest version is the first to appear on a page, permitting a much simplified regex.
  16. Bug report : beta 3 : Issue : Multi-segment downloads don't seem to support ftp server. Once a job decides it needs updating, it begins the download process, however it hangs without failure. To reproduce : Just use following url in an app, set multiple-segments to 3 : ftp://ftp.musicbrainz.org/pub/musicbrainz/picard/picard-setup-1.3.2.exe
  17. Karan, I hope you understand you only get one of these Dashlane : URL : hxxps://www.dashlane.com/directdownload?platform=win Works fine for me with Ketarin 1.8.6 b3 Etcher: URL : hxxps://resin-production-downloads.s3.amazonaws.com/etcher/{version}/Etcher-win32-x64.exe version src : hxxps://github.com/resin-io/etcher/releases Gamesaver : URL: hxxp://www.gamesave-manager.com/?s=download&a=dl referer: hxxp://www.gamesave-manager.com/?s=download User-agent : Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/52.0.2743.116 Safari/537.36 Wo
  18. Sure. Not confident in my ability to do this, but I'll give it a shot this coming weekend.
  19. Ketarin 1.8.6 b3 introduced a feature which is exactly suited to this goal. Please follow the visual instruction below :
  20. Very useful updates, thank you kindly for your efforts floele. Beta 3 : Observations and Examples of the new features : Segmented downloading (enable in Settings -> Connection) Tested with 10MB, ~300MB and ~700MB files; segments set to 3. Integrity of files is maintained after download. Have confirmed 3 open sockets, consuming all available download speed. Made UrlVariable constructor public Works as advertised, thx. It's a little confusing that a variable name is required, both when creating the variable-object and adding it to the job. An example use of this feature, along with cont
  21. As an example of the new feature, following the release of Ketarin 1.8.6 beta 3 /, please find below the working version of the prior mock-script : #### ADD DATE VARIABLE IF NOT EXISTING # Parameters $varnm = "LastUpdate" $vartp = "Textual" #StartEnd or #Textual or #RegularExpression # # Derived access property, ie. app.variables.$varnm.$varcnt $varcnt = if($vartp -eq "Textual"){"TextualContent"}Else{"CachedContent"} # If it doesn't exist, then create a new one if(-Not $app.variables.$varnm){ # ECHO "========== $varnm NOT FOUND, ADDING IT ==========" # # Add v
  22. As a general rule, when a website uses JS to populate html dynamically, it may make an XHR request. If so we can use the data, usually simple JSON text, to get what we need. In this case, the XHR request URL is : https://data.services.jetbrains.com/products/releases?code=IIU%2CIIC&latest=true&type=release Note : If they decide to change the API, it is possible that they make use of cookies and post data not encoded in the url. In this case you'll need to check the headers. I've included a working job. Check the "URL" variable in case they modify their versioning scheme. Intel
