v15 not on ftp site?

#1
Seems that the v15 is not on the ftp site - either in the \beta\ or \tcmd\ folders. I did see the message abnout the download.jpsoft.com link but why not on the FTP site?

FTP site is basically being discontinued. There are previous threads about this.

I used to update my installers by doing "copy /u" from the ftp address. "copy /u" doesn't work with http addresses, unfortunately. I switched to a batch file based on what I saw in previous threads and modified it a bit. the batch file downloads the update.aiu file, reads that file to see what version is on the web site, then downloads the installer if it's a newer version than what I have already. Works well for me.

Here's the batch file I use if you're interested.

Code:
@echo off
 
pushd D:\Downloads\Programs\JPSoft
 
gosub download tccle v13
gosub download tccle v13 x64
 
gosub download tcmd v14
gosub download tcmd v14 x64
 
gosub download tcmd v15
gosub download tcmd v15 x64
 
echo.
filever /b /e *.exe
popd
 
goto end
 
:download [prod ver bit]
copy /q /z http://jpsoft.com/downloads/%[ver]/%[prod]%[bit]update.aiu
iff %_? eq 0 then
  iff %@verinfo[%[prod]-%[ver]%[bit].exe] ne %@word[-0,%@iniread[.\%[prod]%[bit]update.aiu,Update,Name]] then
    copy /z http://jpsoft.com/downloads/%[ver]/%[prod]%[bit].exe %[prod]-%[ver]%[bit].exe
  endiff
endiff
return
 
:end

What if one wants a version prior to v11 - not sure what the call to "gosub download" should be for them. I tried just entering the same but it had a http crash...

Why is the FTP site being discontinued? I have not seen a single mention of this - except in this thread....

Also what does:
filever /b /e *.exe

do please?

There are dozens of previous messages about this, and I'm not going to reopen the issue now.

Suffice to say that the time spent maintaining the FTP site & blocking the hundreds (sometimes thousands) of daily attacks was costing JP Software in the neighborhood of several hundred dollars for each of the < 10 users who were using it.

That just shows the version information for the downloaded files. Filever is an external utility I've had for a long time, I'm sure you can do the same with internal function variables.

Code:
pdir /(@verinfo[*] f) *.exe
