GitHub Integration - Auto-Updater

Sat Jun 20, 2020 1:36 am

Hi,

I originally posted this as a reply to the message where the feature was requested but I haven't heard back from anyone. Sorry for cross/posting.
(viewtopic.php?f=1&t=35004)

I can't seem to be able to get the new github releases integration to work for auto-updates.

The first step in the documentation says:
1. Set "Updates configuration file URL" to a GitHub updates URL

I'm assuming it means to store the updates configuration file in github and provide the url, however it's unclear what the contents of the file should be.
I've tried everything, having an empty file, having just ;aiu; on the first line and even using a regular file with an update configured. No matter what i do, i always get the same error after I install the application and run the auto-updater:
Invalid or missing updates configuration file. The first line of the .INI file should be ;aiu;. It is possible that the content on the server does not match the updates configuration file url.
Is it a known bug or can you provide some more information about how to get this setup and working?

I'm on version 17.1.1 professional.

Thank you,
R.

Hello and welcome to our forums,

I have seen your other post and I am currently working on this.

Please give me some more time to further investigate this (as this is a new feature for me, too) and I will followup on your other thread as soon as I will have this figured out.
