Update CLI command
I might have a rather specific question - is there any possibility to launch Notepad++'s auto-updater from Windows commandline (powershell/cmd)?
Use case is that I am working in corporate enviroment and I am requested to keep my tools updated (Notepad++ included).
Since I have under my supervision something like 10 instalations at different servers, I would like to make a centralised (Ansible perheaps?) script which will connect to each server, and run some command to launch auto-update.
I am avare that re-installing with Notepad++ binary downloaded at a side might do the trick, but I am curious anyway about the command :-)
I’ve never done it, but from this piece of source code, I believe that when Notepad++ runs the updater, it is essentially running the bundled gup.exe, possibly with some command-line parameters
When I did the search through the code on the
getWingupCommandsand things that influence it, I could only find the Plugins Admin using the command-line options. Oh, no, some more searching finds that when you run it through the ? > Update Notepad++ entry, it ends up running this section of code which didn’t use the
getWingupCommands()call, but still adds command-line arguments.: you can dig into that section of code to see what command-line arguments it runs.
Typically, when someone selects the
? / Update Notepad++menu option it runs
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Notepad++\updater\gup.exe" -verbose -v8.55where the
-v8.55is the current version of Notepad++.
gup.exe has a web site, https://wingup.org/, but the details of the command line options don’t seem to be explained so you can figure out what works best for your setup.
