Marcs Updater

Update: A new beta version of the 1.5 series has again finally been released. The new DNS service providers all-inkl.com and inwx.com are supported and some code refactoring to support custom DNS and IP service providers has been performed. My plan is to have custom provider support and multiple account support for a 2.0 release this year.

There have been some reports about issues with the Updater not updating anymore. Please try the latest beta version and switch to another IP Check provider instead of the previous default dnsomatic.com. For some reason they are rate-limiting the number of requests to their service. The new IP Check provider selection allows you to choose another provider in such cases. You can test the functionality with the new "Test" panel.

Is it possible for this wonderful updater to update more than one service at a time? I use DynDNS for my domain entries and OpenDNS to act as a basic content filter. Can Marcs update both for me?

Hello Marc, it is possible to include an option for Disable the Update to a newer version?.
In XP64 the build 294 don't work correctly and if i use the 293 , it tries to auto-update to a
new stable version.

BTW: in XP64 the release has the following error during install
"this application failed to start because wlanapi dll was not found" i google it, and i found
that there is no WLANAPI.DLL for XP64, there is one for Win 7 64, but not for XP.

Thanks !

Does it update IPv4 together with IPv6 in DNS-O-Matic, or just IPv4 ?

Does the updater use SSL to connect to DNS-O-Matic?

Is there anyway to run once and exit? I really don't need this program running as a service as my IP might change once a year, if that.

Hi Marc,
I'm using Windows Home Server 2011 (equal to Win7) and running your app to STRATO.
Unfortunately it doesn't work. Any update on that.

Hello everyone,

the new website is now live. Comments have been migrated from Disqus to this site and will now be categorized into discussions, (feature-)requests and issues. I am still working on the automated download section and bringing back the version information.

Best regards,

Hello everyone,
I plan to perform a major update to this site till the end of this month. After that new updates to the application itself will follow, here are some aspects on my todo list for a possible beta version of v2.0:
- update multiple dynamic DNS services
- add more dynamic DNS services (mainly the ones mentioned in other comments)
- support for custom dynamic DNS services
- and of course: internal bug fixes and code restructuring
