Description
TrueUpdate is a comprehensive solution for corporate IT departments, ISV's, and government developers wanting to integrate automated update capabilities into their software. It provides a sophisticated framework for determining required updates and then retrieving and applying the necessary patch or installation files via Internet, intranet or LAN.

TrueUpdate was designed to meet the demand for a complete, web-enabled updating solution that can be integrated quickly and easily into new and existing software products, regardless of the installation and deployment methods used. TrueUpdate leverages existing tools to make adding update capability to a company's development infrastructure as simple as possible.

As a self-contained, standalone executable, TrueUpdate can be used to update any electronic content, from software applications to time sensitive data such as product catalogs, spreadsheets, financial information, sales figures and budgets. This also makes TrueUpdate easy to integrate into existing software applications. TrueUpdate can present a familiar wizard interface to users, or it can operate silently in the background.

Adding dynamic updating to software applications is becoming increasingly important to developers and users. Developers benefit from lower technical support costs, reduced marketing costs, and faster time-to-market, while end users enjoy more frequent and hassle-free bug fixes and feature additions.

TrueUpdate Features & Benefits

What is TrueUpdate?
TrueUpdate is a "Dynamic Software Update System". It offers a comprehensive solution for corporate IT departments, ISV's, and government developers wanting to integrate automated updating capabilities into their software products. TrueUpdate provides a sophisticated framework for determining required updates and retrieving and applying the necessary patch or installation files via Internet, intranet or LAN.

Adding TrueUpdate to your software gives your users the ability to easily check for updates to your product, retrieve the most recent data files or keep abreast of new developments. With just a few mouse clicks, users can find out if a new version of your product is available, download it and install it automatically.

Why You Need TrueUpdate
Adding dynamic updating to software applications has become increasingly important to developers and users. Developers benefit from lower technical support costs, reduced marketing costs, and faster time-to-market, while end users enjoy more frequent and hassle-free bug fixes and feature additions. Users associate live updating with quality software. Quite simply, TrueUpdate adds value to your products.

Reduces Support Costs
Automating the update process for your users can save you valuable time and expense. It reduces support costs by making it easier for your users to keep their software up to date - giving your tech support department fewer legacy support issues to deal with. It reduces your marketing costs, because you won't have to resort to expensive ad campaigns to keep your users abreast of new versions. It reduces production costs by allowing you to maintain a larger inventory with less concern over obsolescence, relying on the TrueUpdate technology to get your users up to the latest release immediately after installing the product.

Easy Integration
TrueUpdate was designed to minimize the time it takes to add automated update capabilities to your software. As a separate executable, the TrueUpdate system is easy to integrate into your software. Simply customize the client executable with the easy-to-use Client Configuration Utility and include it with your application. There are no additional compile-time dependencies, OCX controls, static libraries or runtime modules. Everything is included in one easily callable, standalone executable file. It’s simple and elegant.

Standard Internet Protocols
TrueUpdate uses readily available client-server technologies, rather than the proprietary servers required by other update products. By making use of affordable and trusted protocols such as HTTP and FTP, organizations of any size can deploy TrueUpdate enabled software without the need for specialized and costly hardware and software platforms. Of course, TrueUpdate also supports the use of redundant servers for companies that require the peace-of-mind of dynamic switchover and backup.

Compatible with Existing Tools
When you choose TrueUpdate, you aren't locked into using any particular installation, deployment or patching solution. By leveraging your existing investment in software and experience, TrueUpdate saves you both time and money. While Indigo Rose suggests using our award winning Setup Factory installation tool or our Visual Patch product, you are certainly free to choose just about any tool you wish.

Dozens of Powerful Actions
TrueUpdate comes with dozens of built-in actions and commands. While some products can only download and run an installer file (yet still require you to use their proprietary server application!), TrueUpdate gives you complete control. From downloading files via FTP and HTTP to manipulating ZIP files, TrueUpdate is there. Throw in complete shell coverage for copying, deleting, renaming and moving files. Keep going with full conditional expression parsing, string manipulation, registry editing, application process creation and destruction. TrueUpdate even supports extremely powerful SMTP email, FTP upload, CGI GET/POST web form interaction and a full suite of control structures and error handlers such as IF, WHILE, GOTO and ABORT.

Customizable Interface
With TrueUpdate, you can choose between a familiar wizard interface or a compact dialog client. Additionally, you have full control over which interface screens are displayed, along with all text messages and wizard images. Once you've built the customized client, you can further control the interface using command line switches and dynamic text variables. Of course, full international language support is built-in. You can easily translate and localize the client to dynamically display in over 70 languages.

TrueUpdate Works!
No other product provides the same combination of industry-leading ease of use, cutting edge features, and absolute flexibility as TrueUpdate. See for yourself!
