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.

Hi

I'm trying to install the updater on server 2016, the install seems to go through correctly but the service is never created\registered and trying to launch the exe doesn't do any thing. Been using it on 2012 since it was released with no issues and would be great if you can get it working on 2016.

Regards

David

Same problem here - service does not seem to be installed on Windows Server 2016.

Can you please advise how to install service manually as a workaround?

David, I worked it out.

When I first installed, at the end of the installation I got an error "Wlanapi.dll not installed".

I added the WLAN feature, and this stopped the error when I ran the updater GUI, but the service was not installed.

I re-ran the installer, and now that the missing DLL was there, it installed everything correctly and is working.

I hope this helps!

Thanks for this. I will adjust the installer to check for the wlanapi.dll or maybe I will make this optional again.

Unfortunately the "core" version of 2016 which Microsoft are now pushing as the default install and the one I am using can not have the wireless feature installed. So if it could be made optional that would be great :)

Please test the latest unstable version 1.5.3.302 which I just released to make the Windows Wireless-LAN API optional again.

Thank you, I am glad to hear that. And thanks for your donation. I am still working on a new release which fixes some bugs that slipped into builds 300-302, especially regarding possible crashes.

No problem, know its not much but I felt I should give some thing for the support plus all the years I have been using your updater now :). The build seems to be good for me so far, if I do notice any issues I'll report back here with them for you. More then happy to test and provide any logs or diagnostics where I can.

As for the email alerts I was getting them then they seemed to stop and now I'm getting them again so not sure what happened there, might be my server or some thing.

Thank you again.
